“Yes, in answer to your question,” Ms. Hill began.  “I do believe in ghosts, and the supernatural.”  The author, and IndiePub Coach, went on with this amplification of her experiences with the occult.

For me it all began after my grandfather died.  He was killed on Christmas Eve – hit by an onrushing locomotive at midnight on Christmas Eve 1956.  But I learned as time went on that supernatural occurrences had marred the history of my mother’s family for generations.  Since the Civil War, actually.  My great-grandparents lived on a farm overlooking Turkey Creek in Southern Ohio.  Ghost sightings were not uncommon around Turkey Creek after the Union troops came home.  It was not until the 1950s and an incident at the abandoned farm house where my grandmother was raised that I realized that my first encounter with spirits was not that unusual (in our family).  

My own experience with the afterlife happened in Arizona.  The smell of dried cactus and fresh sage usually permeated the air; until the occurrence of what I about to tell you.  . I was seven years old and alone in the house, waiting for it to be time to leave for school when the front door slammed.  I was standing in the den with a full view of the living room when I spun around.  The distinct smell of musk, or the smell of deep woods decay, filled the living room.  I was suddenly chilled by the sound of chains dragging across the linoleum floor.  This encounter with the supernatural world is detailed in my book, ‘Ghost Stories And The Unexplained’

Several years later, while visiting my mother’s homestead Turkey Creek Farm, I had my first ‘witnessed’ experience with a ghost – a young woman who had lost her Union officer fiancé.  My grandmother knew her story:  So bereft was the Young Miss from her sorrows that she threw herself in to the swirling, murky waters of Turkey Creek from the high bank above.  For nearly one hundred years she beckoned inhabitants of Turkey Creek Farm to the edge of the precipice.  My grandfather drowned in the creek six months after my mother was born.  His death was as mysterious as it was unnecessary, according to my grandmother, who spent most of her life grieving for the life – and lifestyle – she believed had been taken from her.  My story ‘Turkey Creek and the Civil War Miss Who Walks its High Banks’ describes my own encounter with the apparition that tormented Turkey Creek residents.  

There are many, many stories that I have been told over time – or experiences that I have had with ‘The Unexplained’ and ‘Tales of Terror’.  

Now, I am writing Book Two of my ‘Ghost Stories’ series:  ‘Ghost Stories and Tales of Terror’ which will publish on or before November 30th.
