Overview

Imagine that you are seven years old – a mere child – alone in the house after your parents leave for work. The clock on the mantle ticks loudly, ominously counting off the seconds. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

Quite suddenly, your ears are pricked by the sound of chains dragging heavily across the floor and down the long hallway of your parent’s home. Has the spirit of your grandfather come back to reassure himself that all he has left behind is secure? How soon will he depart, and release you from the terror that he has possibly left the portal open to the World Beyond?

On your sixteenth birthday you hold the clammy fingertips of your classmates at a slumber party séance, having waited until midnight to summon the power of The Ouija. Your friends gasp as the candles that throw shadows across the room flicker and the lens into The Other World begins to sweep across the board.

In the crypt-like quiet that follows midnight you watch from across your room as the doorknob of your bedroom door turns, almost imperceptibly. It creaks ever so slightly, rattling in its casing. You know that it is not a human presence that has come a'callin' – a human most certainly would have been caught by the alarm system.

You don’t think these occurrences could ever happen? Think again. Because they do happen; and they have happened to me. I remember each incident vividly.
Ghost Stories And The Unexplained, is a collection of contemporary ghost stories that recount my own experiences with The Unexplained supernatural occurrences in my life.

47,000 words.

Ghost Stories and The Unexplained, is a truly gripping collection of the 7 chapters each of which describes instances when The Beyond crosses over to the world of humans. The collection opens with a chapter that sets the leitmotif for the rest of the stories...too dark, too dangerous and too full of disturbing images. I made the mistake of reading it before bed and I was afraid to fall asleep! I give it five stars.

    I heard Emily Hill on Beyond (blog talk radio) and decided to check out her books -- starting with this first one. So eerily weird!  
    So many people have supernatural experiences but don't speaking out about them. This set of short stories gets  ***** 5-Stars!
