I Love Cemeteries

Or maybe, #weirdauthorquirk would be a better description.

I LOVE CEMETERIES!

Two years ago when I still lived in Northern Virginia, my BFF and her whole fam were there visiting us for a week.  I was playing tour guide to all the DC sights and we were at Arlington National Cemetery. 

*Side note, if you've never been and ever have the chance to go, GO.  It's an amazing experience.

Anyway, I love cemeteries.  I know, it's weird, but I do.  I like to read tombstones.  SO weird, right?  Now, at our national cemetery, there are no personal or family facts that I love to read, but I was walking and reading names when I came across a Grady. 

I fell in love. 

I was just starting to sort out my Killers in my head and knew the name Grady didn't match up with Crew's personality, but for my Grady, it was perfect. 

So from a tombstone in Arlington National Cemetery, Grady was born. 

And his path leads straight to you on April 25th!  Paths (The Killers #2) by Brynne Asher

Carvanz Please don't tell me it's weird to love cemeteries! Loved them all my life and morbidly enough I passed that quirk down to my daughter. I think it's the history of the place and people that pulls me in.

I love the name Grady and can't wait to get his story in just a few long days!

Good luck and Congratulations!

Thank you and I'm so happy others share my quirk for cemeteries. The older the better, right?

Gio Listmaker I love cemeteries too!! Been to Arlington, you feel a deep reverence there.

It is my goal to see one in every country. I really want to see this one in Paris.

It is where Proust, Oscar Wilde and Jim Morrison are buried.

That's cool Gio! I saw Robert Frost's grave but my favorite cemetery so far was the one in Salem, Mass...creepy scary but sooo interesting.

I have been to some cool ones.
Hollywood Forever is a good one. They show movies on the side of the mausoleum.

I went to Salem one when I was a kid. I remember being creeped out.

That's so cool and weird and kinda morbid depending on the movie. But I like it!
