Hello I’m Author Leigh Savage. I’d like to take a moment to Thank Olivia for inviting me on her blog today.
I’d like to start by telling everyone a little bit about myself. I currently live in Saint Louis, MO with my husband and two beautiful kids. In my spare time I like to paint, draw, read, and watch lots of TV shows like True Blood, Vampire Dairies and one of my all time favorites was Charmed. I also love watching lots of movies and anime. I have a great fondness for all things paranormal.
Today I’d like to discuss the belief or disbelief in ghost. Polls show that one in five people believe ghosts are real.
Let me ask you have you ever felt that sudden chill in the air that travels up your spine causing the hairs on the nap of your neck to stand on end? Thought that you seen someone out of the corner of your eye only to turn and find that your all alone?
I’m a firm believer in ghost as a young girl I swore that I saw a ghost when I stayed all night at my cousin’s house. It may have only been a over active imagination but many years later when I was a teenage my friend and I walked by that same house on our way to her house only no one lived in the house anymore nor had there been for years. When we came out of my friend’s house to walk back to mine all the lights where on in the house; we ran to get my friends brother and made him check the house all the doors and windows where still locked and the house was completely empty. Later that same night we kept looking out the window at the house and still the lights stayed on. Then just after Midnight all the lights went off all at once. The house was eventually demolished; but that feeling never left me. Making me often wonder if ghost really do exist then why are they still lingering in our world?
One of the most popular beliefs is that the person experienced a tragedy at the time of death and that their spirit simply cannot move on.
I explore this belief in my novel Bound by Blood: A Collection of Short Stories of vampire, ghost and other creatures of the night.
In the short story Shattered Vows Wynter DeBrassie was a jilted bride who took her own life and is now forever doomed to haunt the walls of the manor searching for the one who wronged her bent on revenge.
Now I want to hear from you…Do you believe in ghost? If so have you seen or felt their presence?
