Book Description

Everything you have ever wanted to know about ghosts but didn’t want to ask. Ghosts: A bit of a strange topic. But if you have picked up this book it is because you believe there is more to life (and death) than the things we can see, or the things that can be proven by science. Over the centuries literally thousands of people have claimed to see ghostly apparitions that bear a resemblance to a person who had lived life to some degree or another. If you go through the Internet you will find countless stories of people alive today who have seen a ghost, or who believes in ghosts, or wants to know more about them. This book is for the third group of people – those of you who want to learn more about this mystical, yet strangely logical phenomenon.

At this point in the game it doesn’t matter to me if you believe in ghosts or not. I believe in what I can see, hear and experience; and I have been fortunate enough to have seen, heard and experienced ghosts at different times, in different places and at different ages in my own life. Ghosts fascinate me for two reasons. Firstly they provide a link to the past – to my ancestors in some cases, and to the ancestors of others.

The second reason I am fascinated with ghosts is because they provide us with one of the most tangible examples of life after death. While many of us have faith in different religions and beliefs; ghosts transcend both religions and belief and actually provide a semi-scientific platform, which we can use to investigate what happens to us when we die. For those of us that believe in the infinite nature of energy, ghosts are simply an extension of the fact that energy itself cannot cease to exist but instead can and does change form.

Many people fear ghosts; a fact that is borne out by the countless programs there are on television and in films where death is to be feared along with apparitions, poltergeists and other similar elements. Karl Marx would consider this fear a result of man being faced with his own mortality, but for me personally I see the fear manifested in popular media as a way of getting more people to watch an otherwise lacklustre program/film because it feeds into a form of mass hysteria.

I can tell, simply because you have purchased this book, that you think more rationally than the people who actually participate in those programs, and you are looking for some answers. You might be a person who thinks they have seen a ghost but are not sure about it: you could be a person that lives with a ghostly boarder and is hoping to get some information on how to either co-exist with the entity, or information on how to get the ghost to move on. This book will be able to help you with those things.

You may be a bit like me and fascinated with ghosts in which case you are going to love our section on how to detect ghosts, how to become a ghost whisperer and how to remove ghosts that plague people in their daily lives. This book will help you do that as well. But before we go much further let's define what a ghost actually is, or isn’t: and where ghosts came from.

More About the Author


My name is Lisa Oliver and welcome to my Amazon Author page. I am thrilled to announce that I have spent the last four months writing the first of my full length fiction novels - a gay erotic romance about shifters called The Reluctant Wolf. The book is the first of five in the series and I hope you come to love the characters of the Cloverleah pack as much as I do.

You will notice from my back list that I have spent most of my life helping people live the life they want to live and I recently launched my new book "The Happiness Diet: How to Lose Weight Quickly and With a Minimum of Fuss" both in Kindle and paperback format.

As you can see from my photographs I am a perfectly ordinary woman, but I have led a varied life. My books on lowering your cholesterol naturally, surviving and thriving through perimenopause and now the Happiness Diet are all based on my own experiences and extensive research - I guess you could say I like learning about new things. I have also written books on make money topics (stock photography, garage sales and writing for a living) as well as books to help people understand and move on from domestic abuse.

All of my books, from the Beginners Guide to Ghost Hunting, through to Dealing with ADHD Adults are written in a conversational tone. When I am writing I write as though you and I were having a conversation across the tea cups, but don't be deceived by the less-than-formal tone of my work. I take a lot of pleasure out of helping people solve some of their own life problems and the information in all of my books is a combination of personal experience and credible research.

I love to hear from all of my readers so please feel free to catch up with me on Facebook or Twitter
