Bordentown Revisited

Remember the way things used to look? Teenage hangouts? Buildings once here but now gone, but not forgotten? Take a trip down the memory lane. There are lots of pictures of places and people you’ll know or maybe you’re new in town and will meet them for the first time. Can you identify the kids on the cover? Find someone you know.

More Ghosts Along the Border

The excitement within me bubbles up and nearly explodes trying to get out when I open the first box of my new books. It is exhilarating!!! You’d think it was my first published book. No, it’s my 14th book that still feels like my very first one. My hand runs over the smooth, glossy cover. My fingertips feel each individual letter and picture. My name jumps out at me and shouts, “I did it!! I’m published! My words are in print to share with the world!” I open the book and smell the ink and think of Benjamin Franklin with his references to printing ink and the published work. I vibrate with joy!  Along the Border, from the afterlife! True stories from people you may know from both sides of the border between Warren County, North Carolina and Southside Virginia.

Ghosts Along the Border, from the afterlife

WHO SAID IT’S ABOUT TIME?

Look for the Ghostly Spirit in the Mirror

Yes, spirits woke me at 3 a.m. and said, “C’mon, get up and write the story!” I ran into friends who said, “Is the book finished yet?” So, I’m announcing now, “YES, the latest book on ghostly experiences from our neck of the woods (Warren Co.NC & Southside VA) is ready for you!

            This time the book expands to share stories with you about messages from those who have passed away into the afterlife and sent signs back to the loved ones they left behind. What a joy! To know that your mom, dad, friend, family member, etc. is doing fine in a place you don’t know about yet.

Great Little Bordentown, New Jersey

Arcadia has published Bordentown books with great pictures that have a vast amount of its history showing the integrity of the town that continues to be so. Read about the Quakers who first settled the town. The Quaker Meeting house still stands and is in use!  Bordentown’s history reads like a great story of adventure! Occupation by the British and Hessian’s, burning of Colonel Borden’s house while his wife sat in a rocking chair and watched. A library so well respected that it was left intact even though it belonged to a Signer of the Declaration of Independence.  Thomas Paine never purchased property anywhere that he lived but he bought a house in Bordentown, and it still stands today.  And there is so much more. Good Stuff!
