''There's far more to Elvira than a perilously plunging neckline.'' --BBC Channel 4 --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

About the Author

Cassandra Peterson has carved out a niche in popular culture that will endure for generations to come as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. Her reign as the Queen of Halloween has now spanned 38 years and includes two nationally syndicated television series, two feature films, and an IMAX movie. She has appeared in national ad campaigns for Pepsi and Coors, recorded five albums, and licensed over a thousand products including pinball machines, action figures, jewelry, clothing, guitars, four comic book series, her own beer, wine, soda, perfume, slot machines, and the best-selling female Halloween costume of all time. Cassandra has made hundreds of film, television, and live appearances, including The Grammy Awards, Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show, two MTV Specials, Monday Night Football, NBC's Today Show, The Tournament of Roses Parade, Scooby Doo (as an animated character), and reality shows -- Search for the Next Elvira, Celebrity Ghost Stories, Oddities, Counting Cars, Face Off, Halloween Wars, Storage Wars, and Ru Paul's Drag Race. Most recently, she co-wrote, produced, and starred in 13 Nights of Elvira. She published three young adult horror novels with Penguin in the late 90s and self-published a ''coffin'' table book with Colebank Publishing in 2017. Elvira is to Halloween what Santa is to Christmas. Before she was Elvira, Cassanda grew up in Kansas, worked as a Vegas showgirl, toured as a pop singer in Italy, posed for Playboy Models, and performed with The Groundlings.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST CELEBRITY MEMOIR EVER WRITTEN!
By Sam Irvin on September 21, 2021
N’yello! This memoir is an explosive, no holds barred, take no prisoners, jaw-dropping, must-read-right-this-second, masterpiece! I laughed, I cried tears of tragedy — but, most of all, tears of joy and catharsis! I have been a friend of Cassandra Peterson for 30 years and I directed ELVIRA’S HAUNTED HILLS — so, sure, you might think I am biased or blowing smoke up her assets. NOT! I was blown away! Beyond my wildest dreams! Not only is Cassandra a brilliant writer, the stories she has to tell are edge-of-your seat riveting. It’s so compelling, you won’t be able to put it down. I recommend the audiobook so you can hear her tell her larger-than-life story directly to you in her own voice and delivery. But the book has great photos and is a must-have as well. I got BOTH! It is my all-time favorite celebrity memoir, hands down!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a bag of potato chips
By M. Miller on September 24, 2021
I couldn't put it down! I wanted to take my time reading but that was a fail! Truth be told some of the revelations make me think differently of a few ppl . I chuckled, felt mad, sad, cheered her on , wanted to hug her ....but mostly I want to retrieve the Coors beer cardboard effigy of Elvira up in our attic ...I mean...she's out of the coffin so let's out her from my upper level! ). I talked a beverage shop many years ago into giving it to me .:-) I've met her once at a fur demo in NYC. Her animal advocacy is mentioned n the haunted Briar manor chapter was interesting. Fun read! No regrets.
