Ghost at Masonic Temple in Newburgh, New YorkThis is the third or possibly fourth picture of a ghost that we've taken (Prince Charming and I are still debating on one), but its the first time I'm posting any ghostly pictures. To be honest, the first two really creeped me out, so I'm still workin

Ella has been transformed, but that’s not the worst of her problems. She’s got a huge crush on a big guy that won’t speak to her but it’s not because he doesn’t want to. She’s also being mind-stalked by the bully she’s come to know as "the Caller.” And if that weren’t enough, she’s stuck with a sidekick who’s timing is impeccably accurate for always needing a rescue at the wrong time. She’s considered taking an axe to more than one of them, but sh

This cemetery sits behind the abandoned Salesian School where a boy died by falling (or he was possibly thrown according to a more recent coroner's re-examination of the evidence) from the roof; you can read the story here.

Nathaniel White's farm house, a serial killer's lair in ruinsI won’t lie, this trip scared me. I felt anxious before we even got into the car. This trip reaffirmed that its not ghosts or the dead I’m afraid of, but monsters. Real ones…
Beautiful view of the pond next to the ruinsGoshen continues to inspire us, but the charming town was once home to Nathaniel White convicted (through confession) of raping, beating, and murd

When my husband and I went looking for images to use in my 1st ever book trailer for my first novel in the RSH series, Goo of the Gods, we stumbled upon this abandoned school building, which was built in 1931. On that early, foggy morning, I knew it had to be a school because of the exterior pendulum style entrance with a clock nested at the top. The old abandoned structure is surrounded by high fencing, but what was m
