Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Once again bestselling author Betsy Haynes (The Fabulous Five series) has unleashed her prolific pen, this time to delightfully horrifying good use. Bone Chillers is an entertaining collection of grotesqueries that are especially twisted for the minds of young readers. Grounded in the familiar terrain of school, shopping malls, or family affairs, each fantasia exposes a macabre world of demons and monsters lurking just below the mundane surface of everyday life.

In Welcome to Alien Inn, a weekend ski trip for the Meyer family takes a turn for the bizarre. When they get lost in a blizzard, the Meyers check into a hotel to wait out the storm, only to find themselves trapped in a nightmare of extraterrestrial terror.

Overflowing with buckets of gore and more than a little vomitus, Bone Chillers aren't for the squeamish. But there's a moral hidden in this madness and, in the end, the good guys usually come out on top--even if they are covered in some kind of slime. --George Laney


More About the Author

COWSLIP my very first novel has been republished this week (4/5/14)as COWSLIP A SLAVE by CreateSpace and will be available from Kindle next week. THE CREEPAZOID'S NOSTRILS is my 81st published juvenile novel. Want to get your 8 - 12 boy to read? Give him this zany book about an ancient computer morphing program gone awry.

I have written historical novels, mysteries, supernatural/ghost stories and humor. Lots of humor. I have authored four book series: TAFFY SINCLAIR (Bantam Skylark), its spin-off series, THE FABULOUS FIVE (Bantam Skylark), BOYTALK (Random House Bullseye) and BONE CHILLERS (HarperPaperback). The BONE CHILLERS became an ABC Saturday Morning TV series in 1996. In Hollywood, I took part in the filming of public service announcements shown at the end of each episode. What a blast!

My humorous novel, THE GREAT MOM SWAP, became an ABC Saturday Night Movie in 1995. When I'm not writing, I'm teaching "Writing the Middle-Grade Novel" and "Writing the Young Adult Novel" online for UCLA Extension.

I love to visit schools and talk with kids.

I rated this book as a 4 star because it was a pretty good book to read. The reason I rated it a 4 star instead of a 5 star is probably because it was too short. Welcome to Alien Inn is the kind of book that you have trouble putting down, but the element that disapointed me was that it was short. Since I am a pretty fast reader, I read it in about 2 weeks. If you like science fiction, I would think that you would like this book. This book has a typical science fiction plot. The family goes to a place to stay, and that place just happens to be a space ship from outer space that is shaped like an inn. And of course all the members that work at the Inn are aliens. Even the people that are supposed to be "staying" there are aliens. As I said, if you are a science fiction person, I think that you would enjoy this book.
