Residual Energy: Beneath a London Pub.

One of my weirdest run-ins with the Other Side happened in London, 2000. I still don't know how to classify it. Nothing like it's happened since. What makes it super odd is that the SAME thing happened to my mom when she visited in early 2001. In the exact same spot. A whole year later. And I …

Blindfolds and Weiner Jokes: BOOK LAB UPDATE

Um. Ya. Careful posting yourself blindfolded on the internet with "weiner" in the title. ---that's all I'm gonna say about that. Thanks for all the traffic, though. I sincerely hope the blindfold 'enthusiasts' come back to read the *ahem* happy ending. (Sorry.) The nerd in me conjured up a book experiment. I wanted to see …

Blindfolds and Weiner Jokes: First Ever BOOK LAB.

Ya'll know I love reading, right? LOVE it. And I *adore* books. Holding books. Sniffing books. I may've even cuddled a book before. In our house, we regard books like fine china.

10:15pm "You look shell shocked." That's what my husband said when I shuffled in, half-fell on the couch, and stared at the wall. "Dahling?" he cocked his head. Just give me a minute, my hand said. A local mom reached out to me last week. Something was troubling their family and could I please come …

Monster In His Closet: Case in San Marcos, Texas

My first experience with an icky spirit happened in elementary school. It was middle-of-the-night dark, and I was too scared to breathe let alone run to my parent's bed. You can read about that here. I take it very seriously when parents say their kids are scared. Especially when the kid has never been scared …

Original MINDER Video (FAIL.)

Now you've seen my official MINDER book trailer, I'll safely confess I attempted making my own video before Matthew Niemann saved me. My poor little effort was doomed from the start. I was on day 4 of the flu. We're talking FOUR days of hallucination fever. Hot sweats. Cold sweats. Debilitating fatigue. I could barely …

Goodbye Walter, Hello Ghost.

So. We had an 'occurrence' this week I feel worth mentioning. Christopher and I finally finished "Breaking Bad" after a two year investment. A very emotional investment, I'll add. With heavy hearts, we said good-bye to the White family, kissed, killed the lights, and went to bed. Well, he went to bed. I stayed downstairs …
