It’s gonna be a great noveling week!
Why? Because I can finally start digging up bones. Gosh, I’m so excited! Or as one of my friends used to say when she couldn’t wait for a particularly cool hiking trip; “Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!”
But wait, there’s more.
Because once all the bones are exhumed and the forensic anthropologist gets done figuring them all out, I get to indulge my inner research nerd. My main character gets to sift through dusty old libraries, check out Ancestry.com, and ultimately decide whether she wants to live in a town having such a horrid history.
Even better, she’ll have a cool sidekick to help her figure things out. Hint: he’s a retired archeologist turned local historian.
And just for the record, let me state again that my novel is not horror–it’s a historical murder mystery.
So to kick things off and to start getting in the mood for Halloween, I thought I’d share some of the funny epitaphs out there in old New England cemeteries.

You know, the Puritans don’t necessarily have the best reputation in this country but after reading these, you have to admit their sense of humor was a real scream.
No pun intended.
