    A jealous ghost – seriously?

    They say a ghost is the same as the person was in life. So, a playful person would be a playful, mischievous ghost, and a secretive person would make a secretive ghost, hiding stuff and so on. Is it then true that a jealous person would be jealous and possessive of his/her loved ones even after they die? Lawrence had many secrets he kept from Rachel. After he died, he still didn't want her to know certain things about himself. And he hung around to make sure she didn't find out. He was also a possessive husband, to the extent that he preselected a man to take his place should…

    Have you ever wondered about Time?

    Is time really as linear as you have been made to believe? Is it possible to become so lost in time that one can’t find one’s way home? But what does this mean? If you are ‘lost in time’, does that mean you are suddenly in a wrong era? If that is the case, then how do you get back to where you belong?  The theme of time-travel have been extensively explored by Hollywood. According to Einstein’s theory of relativity, we can travel forward or backward through time by accelerating to the speed of light, or by constructing a bridge between two disconnected locations in space-time; black holes and worm holes all…

    Arranged Marriages

    Did you know: arranged marriages account for an estimated 50% of all marriages around the world. That is a staggering number. What is the reason for arranging marriages instead of allowing people to fall in love first?  And who does the arranging of these marriages? Normally the family arranges the marriage, as the parent are wiser and more experienced in what qualities/benefit a marriage needs. So they choose, but the bride and groom have the option to refuse.  Moreover, most arranged marriages are happy, believe it or not.  Statistics – I adore stats! – prove this. Only around 6% of arranged marriages end in divorce. By comparison, more than 40%…

    The History Of A Ghost

    The Moragh's Ghost trilogy has a history. When I started writing the story, way back in the 2000s, I called it An Absolute Bargain. I loved the idea of strangers actually marrying each other. Then, in 2013 it was published by All Things That Matter press under the title Moragh, Holly's Ghost. (The cover on the left - if you look closely, you will see a pentacle embossed on the bride's ring. I loved that cover). When the rights reverted back to me, I revised it, had it edited again and changed both the cover and the title - I seem to like doing that sort of thing - and…

    Friday the 13th

    Have you ever wondered where the fear of the number 13 came from? I mean, some people consider 13 to be so unlucky that they refuse to stay in room 13 in a hotel, the 13th floor in buildings is omitted, and there are those who would not even get out of bed on Friday, the 13th. What is it about a number that has people in such a knot? The term for the fear of the number 13 is trikaidekaphobia. Here are some bad associations linked to the number 13 in history worth looking at. 1) The Mercedes-Benz carrying Princess Diana and Dodi Al-Fayed on the night of 31st…

    How can a bride be haunted?

    How can a bride be haunted, I hear you ask. Her wedding day is supposed to be one of the happiest days in a woman’s life. So, what ghost would be audacious enough to come and put a spoke in her wheel?  But this is no ordinary wedding, and Holly no ordinary bride. You see, the man she is marrying is a complete stranger to her – they have never met in person, and spoke on the phone only once. A bit drastic, I hear you say. And not very realistic. Yes, it is, and no, it isn’t. Desperation calls for drastic action. And this isn’t meant to be a real …

    ConfessionTime

    This is Trip Murgatroyd, just as I saw him in my head while writing his story. Blond, well-built, beautiful. That was why I wanted him on the cover for Interview With A Seducer.  He came surfing on the back of Christian Gray, but unlike Christian, Trip wasn’t screwed up by his childhood. He was wholesome, a good South African man with an unusual career. Early reviewers said he detracted from the paranormal theme, and they didn’t like the title ‘Interview With A Seducer’ either.  I don’t know about other authors, but I listen to my readers – that is why I say your opinion is so important to me. I…
