That one time I thought I was a ghost hunter on The Queen Mary

Hey there friends!

How is October treating you?

What am I saying? Of course it's treating you well. It's October. Best month of the year! And we haven't even gotten to Halloween yet!

Oh October. How I love you.

Anyway, if you guys haven't checked out my newest book Parrish yet, you should totally get on that, because it's about ghost hunters and mysteries and romance and embracing your inner weird and all sorts of other things. So really, if you think about it, October is ideal timing to read this little gem.



For those of you who have read it, the below will make sense, and for those of you who haven't, at least enjoy the video of me running away from a cleaning lady while trying to play it cool.

So in Parrish, my characters go to investigate The Queen Mary. Now I didn't actually pull all of this stuff out of thin air. First off, The Queen Mary is definitely haunted. Second, I happened to stay there on my honeymoon because The Husband and I are just those kind of people. We also wanted to go to The Winchester Mystery House but didn't have the time.

Anyway, I pulled a ton of what happens in Parrish from various places we visited and stories we heard on The Queen Mary, so enjoy some pictures from 5 years ago.



So I was a huge dork and decided to dress all old fashioned to try to freak people out on The Queen Mary. Irrelevant to Parrish, but still, wanted to share.


The long hallways where you can see from the back of the ship to the front.


The haunted pool where all sorts of shenanigans go down in Parrish.


Remember when Sadie runs into the changing rooms near the haunted pool because she hears a voice? Well here are the changing rooms. They're said to be haunted as well... but I guess the whole ship is so.......


More of the pool area.


And the beautiful gold doors I love.

The bathroom in Brighton's room that has the salt water knobs, where Deacon insists she'll get botulism if she uses it.


So there are some of the places on The Queen Mary mentioned in Parrish! And as a bonus, here's a very old video of me trying to be a ghost hunter and failing miserably. We were walking down one of the long hallways on the B deck (which is supposed to be the most haunted deck) when I heard a door close beside me, so I start walking faster and The Husband laughs at me because, in fact, it was one of the cleaning people leaving a room. Of course I try to play it cool and force myself not to run or scream, but I couldn't hide the little half job I did for a second there. Oops.

Apparently I'd make a horrible ghost hunter.

Hope you're liking Parrish!

Until Next Time!
