We're over the moon to feature acclaimed author/illustrator, Barbara Cantini, in our Fall 2023 issue of the magazine!
Barbara's world consists of all things spooky and filled with Halloween. In her native Tuscany (Italy) she lives and loves the holiday as much as we do here in the states. Her extensive line of books reflect a world of this, especially with her beloved character, Ghoulia: a sweet little zombie girl who sets off for many an adventure. (In Europe, the character is known as Mortina)
Barbara was interviewed by Kristen Stafford (she does that awesome Halloween Art & Travel Podcast that we all love so much) and told of how the character of Ghoulia came to be, and also how Halloween is celebrated in lovely, rustic Tuscany.
Read all about Barbara in our upcoming issue, which will be available September 2023 here, and also at the Bewitching Peddlers of Halloween show in Marshall, Michigan on September 30th!
