Who Is This Person Running This Blog?
My books on Kindle and Nook (Sharon Day): "Was That a Ghost?" "Abandoned Places: Abandoned Memories (Desert Edition)," "Josiah: Undead Cowboy," "Don't Go There: A Flash Horror Anthology." "Zombie Housewives of the Apocalypse." "Kickin' Up Dust! Getting Lost To Find Ourselves," "Blogging Changed My Life!" and also my horror/dark erotica books under the name Anna Melissa.
I like to be Autumnforest. I have an autumn leaf tatt and I have to admit, it is just me, through and through.
I was raised in a 250-year-old haunted home in Northern Virginia. It was used as a field hospital during the Civil War by the North and then by the South who wrestled it away again. I grew up digging up relics. The house was considered one of the most haunted in the US. TV crews and reporters and mediums all enjoyed checking out the ghosts. As well, I have a psychic skill called psychometry that made it possible for me to discern the histories of people associated with the relics I dug up.
I moved to the Southwest, but I was still filled with so many questions about what I experienced as a kid growing up. I sought answers by ghost hunting. Then, I started this blog in 2008 to try and find others who had theories, wanted to test things, look for answers and further the field.
You will find me at times to be bawdy and brassy, saying it like it is. I have a sense of humor that is a part of much of what I do, but I also have a huge heart and inquisitive mind. If you find yourself on this blog, you have just become a member of my think tank and my tribe. We are rebels and thinkers, curious and funny, considerate and earnest.
I take road trips and go on ghost hunts, bring the video camera and the digital camera and bring you along. There is a tab above for photos/urbex where I give lots of advice on how to photograph abandoned places and road trips I've been on. I have a sidekick ventriloquist doll Dale, who generally hates and distrusts "The Human" (me). I will do zany things and make you snort with laughter if I've done my job well, because I think that education shouldn't be at the cost of your sense of humor. Check out the tab above "Laugh," which is a comedy series poking loving fun at the ghost hunting shows.
I am also a writer and that comes out in the blog a good deal. Sometimes, I put up short stories and also announce upcoming books. On the left-hand side you will find buttons to my books. More are coming about the field of ghost hunting and psychics, and a series of western horror novellas. I have much to contribute and do so with the same thoughtfulness and logic, sensitivity and honesty that I do on the blog.
Who did you find when you came to this blog? A friend for life and someone who generally instigates people to dream and do. I am a cheerleader and a shoulder, a good ear and a mentor. I am also likely to get you into some mischief because I sort of specialize in that.
If this hasn't scared you, please follow me and we will continue the journey into the unknown...
