This last period of waiting for the finished copy, cover on and contents listed of Ghostly Spirits of Warren County, NC & Beyond can be a bit unnerving. So I just go forward writing the next manuscript which is the collection of all those little bits of paper recording all my paranormal experiences since I first noticed way back when.
As I wander around the house talking to myself, bringing the images of memories to the forefront of my mind, I notice Lady Jane in the bathroom sitting in front of the mirror. She loves the mirrors in the house and often spends quiet time-maybe not so quiet for her-seemingly to just sit there. But I wonder if she is looking deeper into that mirror than most of us do.
Ghosts have been photographed in mirrors. Before coming to Warren Plains, Alice and Duane lived in Warrenton, Virginia where a ghostly image was photographed in their mirror and published in the Fauquier-Times Democrat along with an article by Joe Winkelmann. They told me of their experiences with the afterlife. Soon you can read about it too.
Hmm…..about Lady Jane.

My two girls, Lady Jane and Mz Lizzie, were Bordentown-rescued sisters as tiny kittens born of feral parents. As they grew I realized that they are paranormally sensitive, perky and alert when a visiting spirit was in the room with us. I’ve watched their heads turn, watching a movement cross the room that I couldn’t see but could sense.
Early on in Bordentown, they were both on the bed when, in the middle of the night, a voice came from wherever saying, “You have to sell everything and leave.” I’d had enough paranormal moments to know that I must pay attention to this and do as the voice said. Now, years later I realize that I probably would have lost everything I owned, i.e. apartment building and book shop business due to the economy down-swing if I had not heeded that message. Thinking that my mortgage interest rate would have increased (the bank reviewed my loan every 5-years) and the cost of heating a three story Victorian building with oil after the cost went from .79 cents per gallon to close to $4 a gallon. The other half of the apartment building was heated with natural gas. Those prices were already high and climbed even higher. Plus the usual maintenance of an old building. Rents can only be raised a minimal amount to help cover those increases.
Of course the girls woke at the sound of the voice, their heads swiveling as if trying to locate where it was coming from. Eyes wide, noses in the air. They looked at me expectantly. A person doesn’t forget shared moments like that.
The mild earthquake we experienced last year chased Lizzie under the bed minutes before it happened. She leapt off the bed and zoomed under it like the devil was chasing her. She always senses when thunder and lightning storms are coming and scoots to her favorite hiding place ahead of time. If my closet door is open, she heads for deepest corner in there first. Jane is a little slower to react but she is also psychic-sensitive.
