The Masked Skeleton
Deborah Dolan Hunt
Sammy the skeleton jumped out of the bushes. “Boo!”
Connor waved. “Happy Halloween.”
Clara giggled. “Sammy, you’re not creepy enough to be scary.”
“Let’s go trick-or-treating,” said Connor.
“No, thanks.” Sammy stomped away.
Sammy spotted some kids. He ran over to them and shouted, “Beware!”
The kids ran past him to the next house. “Trick or treat!”
Sammy put on his silly mask that was not creepy or scary and went to find his friends.
Everyone scattered as he walked by. He spotted Connor and Clara and ran up to them.
They screamed and ran away.

I'm a nursing professor and writer. I have published 3 nursing books, 2 picture books, a chapter book, 2 middle-grade books, an activity book, and a self-care book. My new middle-grade "Hannah and the Hobgoblins" will be released in January 2021. And "Dale Earnhardt: Destined to Race" what I wrote with my co-author R.S. Murphy will also be released in January. I am thrilled to share that I also have book contracts with Clear Fork Publishers and Pen It Publications. I love the beach and have written many of my books while out on Montauk. I love to read and enjoy painting, cooking, gardening, and hiking.
