The key question for me surrounding all hauntings is whether the phenomena is "real" -- or the result of scientifically explainable phenomena that can include delusions, manipulation, fraud, or natural causes (wind, water, earth tremors, etc).
What do you guys think? Have you had paranormal experiences yourself - or had friends who did? Or do you just like to read about it?
I had a very unpleasant set of experiences some years ago, and decided to write about them, initially as a way of just getting rid of the emotions. But the first round readers loved it, so I worked on, to polish the story. Four years of polishing later, the book was published -- just last week!
if you like ghost stories, please take a look at Shadows in Summer, my novel, just published on Amazon.com
BASED ON ACTUAL EVENTS
- Crescent Varrone
When injured ballet dancer Katrina Nielsen and her American husband, Richard, purchase Sound House, they hope that the charming home will ease their transition from New York to Copenhagen . Katrina was just nineteen when she fled gloomy Denmark , leaving behind her mother, Ingrid, and her grief over her father’s death. Seven years later, she returns home to face the ghosts of her past. Yet when weird events begin to occur at Sound House – inexplicable smoke and footsteps, a ghostly face at the window – she starts to think she is being haunted by the ghost of Karl Damsgaard, the original owner. After she’s “attacked” by an unseen force, Katrina becomes convinced that something is trying to drive her out of the house…or out of her mind.
