I adopted Bordentown as my home after being born and raised in nearby Hamilton Township, New Jersey. Bordentown sort of wrapped itself around me and never let go. Living there formed and molded me into becoming what I am today. It holds dear memories. My next home was in the forests of Macon, North Carolina where my spirituality has deepened . My two rescued, literary psychic cats, Jane and Lizzie shared my home and my life until Lady Jane passed away. They were named for the Bennet sisters of Pride and Prejudice. They had the same personalities.
Mz Lizzie came with me to my present home, back into town life in South Hill, Virginia. It took awhile for Mz Liz to adapt to the sounds of town, quite different from the very restful quiet of the forest.
I have published five books on New Jersey history; four of those are picture books for the Images of America Series; Bordentown, Bordentown Revisited, Bordentown Postcards with my dear friend, the late Patti DeSantis, and New Egypt & Plumsted Township, published by Arcadia. The other is Major Fraser’s, a history of a house and the history it was witnessed. Four books are true stories of hauntings and paranormal phenomena, Ghosts of Bordentown, Haunted Bordentown, Living with Ghosts, and my Ghostly Spirits in Warren County, North Carolina and Beyond. In addition, Life & Labyrinth is memoir and poetry, The Afternoon Crowd is poetic narrative, and A Nosegay of Violets is a memoir of my developing paranormal experiences. Lastly Simply Put is a collection of poetry.
Writing is as important to me as breathing. Any part of the psychic phenomena gift I have experienced comes down from my maternal grandmother, Elizabeth Urbanski Daniels. I pay homage to her and all my ancestors, especially the women.
