In proper spooky fashion, I met (for the second time) my favorite childhood book author, Johnathan Rand.

Cell phone images from today’s trip to Uncle John’s Cider Mill.

Picked pumpkins, are cider and donuts, bought 2 books from Johnathan Rand who’s the Michigan Chiller’s author, and got some food. I love the atmosphere here. It doesn’t dvd. Feel like October until we go!

The highlight of our road trip to Gaylord was absolutely Chillermania.

It's this little bookstore in Indian River that exclusively sells books by Johnathan Rand, a children's horror author (he has some adult lit too, but most of the store was for younger readers). I grew up on Goosebumps, Bailey School Kids, and Shivers, and I don't know how I missed this guy's series, but this shop would have been HEAVEN for my weird, spooky-loving 8-year-old self. As it is, we had a blast chatting with Johnathan himself, and he was nice enough to sign the Minnesota book from his "American Chillers" series for me. I cannot hype this place up enough. If you're ever in northern Michigan, you MUST check this place out.

For anyone who doesn’t know, my youngest son (age 9) is a huge bookworm like his mama!

☺️🥰 The Michigan Chillers and American Chillers are currently his favorite book series!

We had the chance to stop in at ChillerMania in Michigan to pick up a few more for his collection.

We were so excited to see that the author was at his store today! He signed my boy’s books and gave them free posters!

Christopher Wright writes under the pen names Johnathan Rand and Christopher Knight and is an thriller/horror author from Michigan. If you haven’t already, go check out his books!

Being in Michigan reminds me of a book series that my children enjoyed as young readers...


Michigan Chillers is a fun, suspenseful and exciting mystery series for children. Involving everything from Poltergeists to Aliens to Mummies to Gargoyles that come to life as well as children the same age as the intended reader. Taking place in cities throughout the State of Michigan, Johnathan Rand's books are not too scary yet just scary enough to keep a child's interest and keep them reading. They'll definitely want to find out what happens next! Ages 8-13 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #michiganchillers #johnathanrand #childrensliterature #mystery #suspenseful #exciting #readwithyourchildren dren #kidlit #repost #bookstagramalabama #bookstagrammichigan #readalittlelearnalittlelivealittle #childrensbooks #repostENR #repostemptynestreader

I preached at Burt Lake Christian Church again this weekend. But that wasn’t the best part.

The best was our visit to ChillerMania! Author Johnathan Rand was there and the kids chatted with him, he teased them, and they were in awe. We picked up a load of books and got some autographs and pictures.
We will go back. He is a fabulous and fun human and so engaging with the kids. And we have more books to fill out our collections.

So excited to add to our Michigan/American Chillers collection today.

Thanks to #JohnathanRand for signing our books!

Took my daughter to see Johnathan Rand today! He was out signing books!!

She took one of her favorites to be signed and picked up two new ones 😊 She wasn't much of a reader when she was younger, the stories never interested her, until she started reading these books!!! I was so glad that she had finally started to enjoy reading.

What were some of your favorite mystery or thrillers growing up?

🌲⛰️🌊❄️🌲⛰️🌊❄️


Recently a friend sent me a care package of items from back home. ❤️ Included was a copy of Johnathon Rand's 𝘚𝘢𝘶𝘭𝘵 𝘚𝘵𝘦. 𝘔𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘦 𝘚𝘦𝘢 𝘔𝘰𝘯𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘴. For Michiganders, Michigan Chillers are a must read series for children and tweens. It's sort of like our regional equivalent to Goosebumps.

I lived in the Sault Ste. Marie (the Soo, to fellow Yoopers) for many years and this book had me feeling all kinds of homesick. To my knowledge, there is not a sea monster living in the St. Mary's River...
