  1. I live in a house that is haunted. Two people for sure have died in the house. One in the very room I write in every day. I have blogged about it and here is a link:

  2. This isn’t a ghost story, but back in the 70s, when I was in my early 20s, and lived in a house on the side of a hill near downtown L.A. where you couldn’t see the neighbors’ houses because of all the foliage between the houses and the slant of the hill. One night, I was reading Stephen King’s “Salem’s Lot,”, alone in the house (my husband was at work), & the story scared me so much that I had to stop reading and find something mundane to do to calm down. I started cleaning the kitchen (that’s another scary thing ~ ya never know what you’ll find in my fridge ~ but we won’t go there now).

    Anyway, I finished cleaning and decided to take out the trash. I went to the side yard & turned on the light, which promptly burned out with a “pop.” The large trash barrel wasn’t all that far from the door, so I stepped out into pitch darkness, took a couple of steps, and froze.

    In the utter silence, I swear I heard rustling in the bushes, but there wasn’t a wind. The vampires in “Salem’s Lot” came to mind, and all of a sudden I just knew there were vampires creeping through the shrubbery toward me. I dropped the trash bag and scurried back inside, locked the door, ran to my bedroom & looked in my closet for my box of keepsakes and mementos where I had put my mother’s old see-in-the-dark rosary.

    I swear, I wore that thing every night for a week and refused to go outside after sunset without it for longer than that! Boy that Stephen King sure did know how to write terrifying horror stories!
