The view from the stairwell into the rest of the basement. This is the exact location where the bat became entangled in Embry’s hair.

The bottom left shows the drain hole where the robed character appeared in Embry’s dreams throughout her childhood. The walls have since been painted white to lighten the room and a large lamp as well as a flash is being used to take this photo. The small door to the right of the furnace is where Embry’s father discovered the bat.

The seemingly endless crawlspace. This part of the wall was removed to run ductwork for central air conditioning well after Embry left home.

Angels. Who are they? Where do they come from? What is their purpose?

The above historical image better illustrates the Cherubim and/or Seraphim as described in the Bible. A far cry from the plump, rosy cheeked, winged toddlers often portrayed in pop culure and modern mysticism.

When we hear the word ‘angel’, our mind’s eye conjures up an image that may not be entirely accurate.  In A Haunting Remembrance Book II, an entire chapter is dedicated to answering questions about angels from a Biblical perspective. There have been many requests for me to publish this chapter on my blog.  Prior to the book going live, for a limited time, the chapter on angels will be available on this blog.  Please click on the above page, “Angels” and prepare to be shocked by what the Bible says about these amazing, powerful, and majestic beings.

Top Reasons Writers Use Pen Names

Image

What do J.K. Rowling, Ann Rice, Agatha Christie, Lewis Carroll, George Orwell and Ayn Rand have in common?  They all use pen names!

Many authors who publish books under pen names have very good reasons for doing so.  The following is a list of the most popular reasons authors choose to use pen names:

  • Privacy and to preserve anonymity
  • Their real name does not flow or is not “catchy”.
  • Separate themselves from prejudice in cases of having an “ethnic” name.
  • They plan on writing under different genres.
  • To sound more “male”.  Male authors tend to sell more books.
  • They do not like their real name.
  • Because we can!

All of these are very good reasons and many of them are the reasons that I choose to use a pen name.  My father still owns the property I am writing about and there is a definite need for privacy for the security of the property as well as for my family.   I am a female and feel that I will sell more books if my name sounds male.   I plan on writing under different genres, so pen names will definitely come in handy.  Take for instance, Nora Roberts.  She also writes under the pen name J.D. Robb in a different genre.  Many popular authors that you have probably read, write under pen names of which you may not be familiar.

If you are so inclined, research the pen name of some popular authors.  You might be surprised!
