My Personal Ecdysis

So strange That moment When you realize You never lived at all It was a life for sure But what was it all about? Strutting on life’s stage All sound and fury Yet signifying ‘not nothing’ Rather lived as expectation Being what you thought You should be But what do I want to be? Who am I really? I’ve masks upon masks So deep, I forget Which might be the real me I begin to peel Layer after sticky layer I peel so deep It really hurts And even now I’m unsure If I’ve reached the core Or, am confused myself As to where my skin Ends and really begins Have I reached my true insides? Is that why I’m feeling sore? I shed each skin And then begin To

Motel Hell

Motel Hell is my new book. Here is the beginning of it just to whet your appetite….. I haven’t written much in recent months as I was lacking the motivation. After writing about the black-eyed kids, nothing much scared me enough to get me interested to write. I began a book early last year on haunted hotels but found the topic was already well-covered and the same old places discussed over and over. Then, I remembered Trip Advisor! I had come across a few reviews by people who spent a terrifying night or two in a hotel that was occupied by something sinister. As I went back over my notes, I began to feel a growing sense of excitement as many of these reviews are both chilling and yet, quite

Rock music ~ the sound of prehistory – Reblogged from SC Vincent

During the summer, I spent a magical weekend with friends Sue Vincent and Stuart France… Here is Sue’s account of a small part of that weekend and a lot of fun trying to make music from a rock….   Way back when the world was warm and the sun remembered to shine, our friend, Gary Vasey, came over from the Czech Republic for a weekend. It was to be our second meeting in the going-on-fifteen-years that we have been close friends, and it was a memorable one for a good many reasons. We wanted to share some of the places that had played such important roles in The Initiate, the first of the books Stuart and I wrote together, which Gary had called “a work of brilliance“, sharing our excitement in the journey. So

So You Think You Know Me?

One idea that constantly occupies some aspect of my thoughts is how transparent people really are. I can think of a couple of examples immediately and in each case, I confess I am often troubled and upset by it. It seems to me that these people believe they know me. They plainly have a picture of me in their mind. A sort of working model. The problem is is that while that picture may have my outer appearance, it is almost certainly a facet of themselves that occupies that outer form in their mind and yet, they do not know this. It makes for an endless source of irritation in our communications. It means that everything I ever say or do is seen against their expectations of how I will

My Virtual Reality

Last night, my daughter and I watched a movie about Katy Perry. As I stepped away for a smoke, these words suddenly came to mind…… Not sure what it means.   Come with me Into my virtual reality Come with me Feel the depth of my insanity I’m sliding away, headed anywhere I’m skipping this insane reality I’m easing on through to be with you I have found my pastures new I’m in my own world of pain and memory Trapped inside some slick pop melody It’s like living a Katy Perry song gone wrong I’m losing my mind inside this silly song I saw you just the other day as you turned away A flash of anger, and then the hell to pay Is this a virtual world, a

The Age of the Mantra

Those who know me will know that I’m a skeptic on CO2 being the primary driver around climate change. I’m called a ‘climate change denier’ despite the fact that I embrace the fact the climate changes. My ‘sin’ is to have some other opinions about why climate changes and despite, the mantras, there is a lot (and increasing) of scientists that share this view. However, this blog isn’t about climate change, it’s about mantras. You see, as soon as my position on climate change is known then I’m seen as a right winger. Again, those that know me will know that this isn’t at all true either. I’m a critical thinker and I have the confidence to hold my own options on almost every topic around which I have some

Radio, Radio!

I have done a couple of interviews in the last couple of weeks – mainly on the Black-eyed kids. The first was with Passion for the Paranormal and you can catch it here if you are interested. This morning – 4am my time, I was live on Beyond Reality Radio for two hours… when they post the podcast, I will provide the link (It’s up and here…). It was a lot of fun and apparently, they want me back! If you want to read about the black-eyed kids – here is my book that is capturing all of the interest right now. meanwhile, my new book – Motel Hell is out later today on Kindle…. grab your copy?

Motel Hell – Ever Stayed in One?

Nope – not talking about poor service, dirtiness, bed bugs and that sort of thing. I’m talking about Hotels and Motels that are already occupied….. by otherworldly guests. It’s happened to me a few times and judging by the reviews I found on Yelp and Trip Adviser, it happens a lot. Some of these reviews are terrifying and others are actually quite funny – imagine being awakened by a peeing ghost for example? Anyway, my next book is ready and it is called Motel Hell – Strange Reviews of Haunted Hotels.   It is available to pre-order now and will be available on August 16th generally.

The Ghost Sex Puzzle

One of the best little books I have written is a book investigating the issue of Sleep Paralysis, The Old Hag and Succubi/Incubi. It’s not a collection of stories but a real investigation of the phenomenon. Funny thing is though, it has never really sold very well. We tried different covers and different titles and all to no avail. Meanwhile, the stories of ghost lovers are all over the media these days with a story recently published about one British woman who is planning to marry her ghost lover! Well, for the next 24 hours, the kindle version is FREE and I invite you to download it and give it a read…… You can get it here. To give you a bit of a reason to go get the book,
