Growing Up With Ghosts

Sharon Day is the sassy, spunky, red-head known for her books on zombies and the paranormal. She maintains the popular blog “Ghost Hunting Theories” and can be found on a myriad of radio interviews, conventions, etc.

“Growing Up with Ghosts” takes us through her early life growing up in an old Southern haunted mansion. I guess the skeptical part of me would shrug off most of the sounds described in the ebook. If an old house didn’t make odd sounds, I think I’d be worried. That being said, seeing ghosts is something else all together.

Father remained in place, frozen by the sight of this stranger in his basement. Just as he took in the details of the boy’s asymmetric eyes, the down-turned corner on one side of his mouth, the very wide-set space in the center of his face and flat nose, the boy disappeared as if he evaporated in the dry cool basement air.

All in all, it comes down to the reader deciding what is and what isn’t paranormal. Is plaster falling from the ceiling paranormal? That being said, the story of a picture crashing into a TV tray and stacks of pennies not tumbling over will have you scratching your head for an answer.

The ebook will give you a little glimpse into Sharon Day and shows the genesis of her interest in ghost hunting. I enjoyed her ebook and found it entertaining and thought-provoking.  I give it 5 stars out of 5.

    I’m glad you enjoyed it. I really wanted people to understand what the family members experienced and the collective sense we had about history and haunts and coexisting together.

    I grew up with ghosts as well. The only problem was I was the only one hearing and seeing things so all the grownups thought I was making stuff up. Very discouraging to a little kid 😦

    Things still continue to happen to me. The other day I walked out of the bedroom. When I came back in, there was a shoe sitting alone in the center of the room. Most of the time, it is just irritating. But I recently heard a male voice say “Get rid of her”. Not so funny now….

    Have to definitely check out this book.
