What started my paranormal ponderings? I think I’ve always believed in a world that exists beyond my average, everyday life. I think most of us do, or want to, anyway. Why not? Believing in the unusual adds a little spice to life, especially during cold New England Januaries and Februaries. Besides, since I can’t actually rule out the existence of mythical creatures, ghosts, and the like, I’ve decided that it would behoove me to keep an open mind about most everything.
At the moment, I’m busy editing my book, I Shall Return, which is a Paranormal Gothic Romance, and have also published a PGR called The Wrath. Writing these books has stirred up memories of my own paranormal experiences, so I thought I’d share a few of them with you.

For several months now I have been intrigued by the little red building on the corner. Day after day, I’ve seen workers coming and going, and vans and utility trucks driving in and out, busy as bees. The building is quiet now, yet I can tell work still continues inside, and I wonder is it ever going to be finished? And when it is, What’s my little red building going to be?
My imagination hasn’t exactly run amok with mad ideas, but it has conjured up a few scenarios:
“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream…” Edgar Allen Poe.
I love that line. Good old Eddie was quite the writer, don’t you think? A little morbid, but he sure knew what he was talking about. Don’t you get that feeling some time? Like your life isn’t really real? That maybe you’ll wake up and realize, “It was all just a dream.” What if that really happened to you? Would you be happy to leave the dream and start fresh, or would you feel sad and lost? I’d be sad. Don’t get me wrong, there were, and still are, times when I would’ve preferred to walk away from what was going on in my life. But not right at this moment, even though it’s pouring freezing rain outside and I’m expecting the electricity to go out any second now.
