Oct. 29, 2011 - PRLog -- On the eve of Halloween 2011, A.V. Harrison Publishing discusses with Kindle Best Selling author, Emily Hill, the phenomena of children who see and hear ghosts.  

AVH:  Your eBook, 'Ghost Stories and The Unexplained' reached best seller status in the United States and the UK this past week.  What do you say to that?

EMILY HILL:  I would like to thank my readers for welcoming my work with such open arms and open minds.  'Ghost Stories and The Unexplained' is a collection of stories that feature my own experiences with paranormal occurrences.  I think that not only is it 'the season' for ghost stories; but so many people are looking for validation of their own experiences with ghosts.  My book personalizes the experience and provides a forum.

Visit for details.

AVH:  What types of experiences have your readers told you about since you published Book One of what we anticipate will be a multi-series?

EMILY HILL:  After I published ‘Ghost Stories and The Unexplained’ I began having conversations with others’ who had also seen ghosts, or had terrifying experiences with apparitions, demon-creatures and so forth.  Several of the stories that I have been told involve the experiences of children with ghosts; so I decided to research the phenomena of children ‘seeing dead people’.  

In 2006 Nicole Leader, paranormal specialist, conducted a study on the subject of children who see and hear ghosts.  Ms. Leader asked adaptations of the following questions of her participants.  If you have a child who sees and hears ghosts; or if you see and/or hear ghosts you may want to take this survey.  I took Ms. Leader’s survey and here are my responses to her questions which I have adapted as a look back on my experiences with the supernatural:

How old were you when you saw your first ghost, or had your first paranormal experience?

I was seven years old.  My parents were at work, and my sister had just left for school (we left for school at different times).  I was alone in the house when I realized that an apparition of my grandfather was roaming the house.  I remember the experience vividly, as though it were just moments ago.

How often do you see ghosts/entities?

Very infrequently and quite without warning.  I am not able to ‘make’ the phenomena happen.

What type of "being" do you see?

The only apparition I have seen is my grandfather – my mother’s father.  My other experiences include hearing pottery crash to the floor and break; although no one is in the kitchen, watching a doorknob turn when I am quite alone in the house; tossing a pen into a pencil box and having it shift from a left to right lean to a right to left lean through static electricity (or some other means).

Have you ever had a near death experience?

Yes.  I was given last rites as an infant.  I contracted polio in 1951 and barely survived.  I believe this neardeath experience gave me a particular sensitivity to ‘seeing’ the Other Side of life and death.  I would imagine that people who have had similar near death experiences also have this insight.  

AVH:  Do you have anything else you would like to add?

EMILY HILL:  Yes, at around two years of age children, for reasons that remain a mystery, become particularly frightened of (a) being left alone for more than a few moments; and (b) become terrified of the dark.  Why is this behavior so universal across cultures?  

I think it is because until they are trained otherwise children see and hear things that they cannot ‘process’ in a world that does not tolerate other realms and realities.  As I was growing up I was encouraged by my mother to discuss the paranormal events that I experienced – most children are stifled, discounted, and taught to ‘not see’ what is going on around them.  It’s not for me to say whether training a child to not accept that their ancestors are close by, watching over them, is for the best – or not.
