I have to share this. When I had to move from Florida, my junior year in high school, the hardest part was saying goodbye to my best girlfriend. We had plans to room together in college, but with the layoffs at the Cape, we had to move. I gave her a locket, and she kept it all those years.
I've kept in touch over the years, losing contact, then regaining it with email. Her husband is a film producer and in the latest release, The Visitant, the actress in the story is wearing the necklace I gave my girlfriend. That's what I call real friendship and I had to share!

Ironically, when we were girls, our mothers would buy used ballroom gowns for us and we'd trick-or-treat in my neighborhood as fairy princesses, of course, and then return to my house where we made a tent out of the ping pong table. With only the eerie glow of the flashlight, I'd tell spooky stories.
We lived across from a jungle-like swamp (see why I can write about the Amazon?) and we used to explore it. But I always envisioned stolen pirate's treasure and ghostly beings living there--always the vivid imagination. Ghostly Liaisons was the YA book I wrote about it. :)
