- Aaron Hurst: Field of Trees
A note from the author: Fun facts...
First, I wrote Tick Tick around five years ago.
A Field of Trees is the first story I've written since Tick Tick, and I am happy to have written this new one for BL&L.
Thank you, for the first time ever I kept a new years resolution.
Please give thanks to my Glittery Space Angel of a wife for being my editor. Also, more fun facts... I lived on a Christmas tree farm for a few years as a teenager. I'll stand by these claims until sense is made of them or I die. I really saw a shadowy figure in the road one night, I really saw a crouched figure among the trees though only once, and I really did hear voices everytime I took a walk. I heard and saw many strange things out there.

Note from the author: We do indeed have "Belinda the child" etched in our basement floor, and we looked at a house before we bought our current home that had a "Things I'm Grateful For" chart on the back of the basement door. It was weird things, like the roof over my head, meals, and mommy. We didn't buy that house for obvious reasons...just another that is also likely haunted…
