How much of myself is in my writing? That’s the question for week three in the MFRW 52 week blog challenge. I can’t keep myself out, I’ve never tried to and the truth is, I don’t want to. I’m in my writing, and I’m happy about it 🙂 Like all fiction authors, everything I write… Read the rest »

A sensory void I hadn’t ‘seen’ anything for years. Hadn’t experienced anything even close to a real life paranormal event. I was starting to believe the scientific explanations for cold rooms, intense emotion attached to specific places, and black spots at the corners of my eyes. But then … I was in the upstairs family… Read the rest »

Would you like to have a short paranormal story published in an anthology? I’m looking for expressions of interest from writers who are keen to publish collaboratively. Your contribution needs to be a well written and edited short story between 500 and 10,000 words. It could be a: Paranormal story you’ve experienced yourself, Ghost story… Read the rest »

Can pets become spirits? Can dogs communicate with us after death? Perhaps with a bark from beyond? Nutmeg, our beautiful Labrador, died while I was at a sales and marketing conference in Brisbane. Home at the time was Adelaide – many hours away. She’d had a stroke some months ago and was still struggling to… Read the rest »

Was it my imagination, or did we experience a real-life paranormal event at our cheap digs in London? You be the judge. My husband and I lived in London while he researched his doctorate paper at the houses of parliament library. We couldn’t afford to live near the Houses of Parliament. We had to find somewhere cheap… Read the rest »

I completed this short story shortly after my 17th birthday, for a writing competition at high school. It didn’t win the competition, but it did help me put an eerily similar real life paranormal event in sharp relief. Real life ‘Sarah’ didn’t die two years after this event — in fact she married, had 3 children,… Read the rest »

How much work is too much, obviously differs amongst different people and different circumstances. Like many writers, I seem to have more ideas than time … and a disturbing ability to dither between multiple projects without managing to make a lot of progress on any of them! At the moment, in addition to trying to… Read the rest »

Regular readers will know that I have some experience with feeling, seeing, or sensing things that can’t be explained easily. Or at least, are easily explained away, but with questions tapping at the edges of our understanding of the physical world. I’ve sensed curious ghosts, sad ghosts and one rather angry ghost…but I don’t think I’ve experienced a poltergeist. Not that… Read the rest »

An evocation is an event in which a necromancer calls or summons a spirit (it is also used in many belief systems and mythologies for any act in which spirits, demons, gods or any other supernatural agents are called.) I know from my readers that Evie is a favorite character in the Daughter of Ravenswood… Read the rest »

Fotokvadrat/Shutterstock.com Is necomamcy evil? As soon as I started writing Path Unchosen, I knew my heroine Meagan would be a necromancer. But I didn’t like how necromancy is usually portrayed in myth and fiction. This picture summed it up for me…and it just didn’t feel right. But did I really know what a necromancer is?
