Ana: Welcome to Beach Bum Reads! I’m glad you can join me tonight :)
TLangston: Hi Ana! Thanks for having me !!
Ana: We’re going to start off with some basics…Can you tell us a little about yourself?
TLangston: Well, I’ve been writing since I was very small. I was someone that always loved the arts. I took dance for many years as well as piano. I worked at a regional newspaper for many years and went to school for Broadcasting and wrote a bunch of scripts. There is something cathartic about writing. In my opinion, everyone has a story. Whether you are just sitting down to have a meal and something happens while you are eating; to something as tragic as a plane crash. It’s fun to people watch and just wonder how people spend their day. I used write a lot until my junior year and after that I had stopped for awhile to go to college, job, boyfriends, friends, etc. I picked it up again in my mid twenties. I began to write fan fiction for fun a few years ago . And it was a friend of mine that really encouraged me to do try to get something published. So I did and have been writing professionally since.
Ana: Any plans for this Halloween? Are you a put-on-a-sexy-costume-and-go-to-a-party kinda girl, or are you the overdose-on-candy-while-watching-horror-flicks kinda girl?
TLangston: I’m one of those who overdose on candy while watching horror flicks kinda girl. LOL
Ana: Do you believe in ghosts?
TLangston: Yes. I do. I believe after we’re gone regardless of religion who worship to or not that even though our lives may be over on earth, there is something more on another platform we all must do to go to.
Ana: You’re walking through a haunted house and you can only have one item with you, what item is it and why?
TLangston: My running shoes so that I can run!! hahahah
Ana: What is your favorite candy to binge on, on Halloween?
TLangston: Reese peanut cups!!! I love them and kit kats. I actually buy a stash for myself and then some some for the trick or treaters..LOL
Ana: If you were to write a thriller, what would you name it?
TLangston: Last of the Finest (which is one I have partially written actually. I wrote it 20 years ago. I re-read it a few months ago and I’m amazed at how well it’s stood up. It’s very different than anything I’ve ever written. )
Ana: What’s the best Halloween event that happens in your town/neighborhood? DETAILS!
TLangston: Not much really. I love my little neighborhood, but there’s not a lot going on!!! There are however, lots of trick or treaters. Back in the day, there used to be a lot of parties, I’m out of loop, if there is, can someone let me know???? LOL!
Ana: (For all the fans out there) Do you happen to know what Cass & Harper are dressing up for this Halloween?
TLangston: Oh that’s a good question! I wonder too. Well, LOL. Oh, I Let me think about that. I think Harper would be a “Southern Belle and Cass would be a ‘Southern Gent.” It would take Harper out of her comfort zone.
Ana: What’s your favorite Halloween movie?
TLangston: Ooh. Let’s see. There are a few..LOL. The originals of Halloween and Fright Night, Carrie and IT…
Ana: What creeps you out the most during this frightful holiday?
TLangston: Spiders. I just hate them.
Ana: Do you have a arms-chilling-eyes-clinching-all-thoughts-thrown-out-the-window ghost story for us? (We’ll take made up ones as well :p)
TLangston: Ok, many years ago. My friend Vicki had this Halloween party at her house and we were watching movies. Actually the movie was Halloween. It was all dark and I was so into the movie that I didn’t know my friends left me just watching it. I was pertified when they asked me to come upstairs after the movie was over with. It was dark, the lights wouldn’t go on. Well, Vicki and friends made sure the lights didn’t go on. I was freaked out and to boot, I dropped my glasses. I was freaking out! I walked around their dark home blind as a bat. LOL
Ana: Okay, last question… and I’ve gotta ask… would you walk through a haunted house on the beach?
TBanister: Sure, why not!
Ana: Thanks for stopping by! It was a pleasure having you! And have a Happy Halloween!
TBanister: Hahaha. This was fun!! Thanks for having me Ana!
Ana: Trick or Treat?
Ana: Ding or Ditch?
Ana: Sexy Nurse or Zombie Nurse?
TLangston: Sexy Nurse
Ana: Witches or Vampires?

As a child, multi-published author Ty Langston loved to read about dragons and knights so much that one day, her grandmother told her to "just write about them."
So she did.
From that day forward, she never left home without her pen, a notebook, and some kind of music playing in the background. Her love of reading expanded from fantasy into science fiction, and eventually into paranormal romance and erotica.
She enjoys different works from George Martin, Anne McCaffrey, Stephen King, and Jackie Collins. But some of Ty's favorite writers are from the world of TV and film: namely, Tudors creator Michael Hirst, and the late John Hughes.
Ty has a certificate in Broadcast Journalism along with a degree in Business Administration. She is single and enjoys spending time with friends and family.
