G is for Ghost

Come Play With Us - The Shining
A ghost (phantom, specter, apparition, or spook) is generally accepted as the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can manifest itself to the living. 

There is a real fascination with ghosts these days as there are no shortages of ghost hunter and paranormal reality shows and Websites. TV shows like Unsolved Mysteries, Sightings, Ghost Hunters, Paranormal State, and The Haunted to name a few take the viewer to locations that are notoriously haunted and the paranormal teams attempt to capture images and sounds and even attempt to make contact with whatever is causing the paranormal activity. 

Awesome Ghost Lloyd the Bartender - The Shining
In my latest work Salem’s Daughters, there’s a team of paranormal specialists with an extremely popular cable TV show who decide to stay at Murcat Manor and have a live three hour show for their fans. 

Big mistake. 

The paranormal team got far more than they bargained for. But then, so did the witches who inhabit the feline bodies of thirteen cats and lounge around the popular bed and breakfast, hiding in plain sight while carrying out the murders of the guests. 

Never underestimate an opponent regardless of the side you are on.

Question: Do you believe in ghosts? Ever seen or feel their presence?
