Nonfiction Book Award Status: GOLD


From the author: When I was five years old, I was awakened by an intrusive ghost who not only scared the wits out of me but who also opened up a portal that activated my psychic gifts and allowed a never-ending parade of paranormal manifestations to occur in my life.

A Knock in the Attic is my story, not only about my psychic awakening and the abundance of mind-blowing otherworldly confrontations I’ve experienced but also about the life lessons those many supernatural encounters have taught me. I’ve learned that our loved ones who have crossed over, as well as our beloved deceased pets, can give us convincing proof that life continues after death.

I’ll tell you what it was like to meet Uri Geller, to film a TV pilot for The History Channel, and give you a behind-the-scenes look at some paranormal investigations I conducted that revealed incredible facts. I will also describe my own “UFO encounter” at the Roswell UFO Museum.

In spite of this exceedingly close contact with the realm of Spirit—or maybe because of it—somewhere along the way I lost my faith and gave up on myself, my psychic gifts, and the beings on the Other Side; but they didn’t give up on me, and that’s why I’m still here to tell you my story.

Now I’m happy to share these amazing events with you, wishing that you will find inspiration, insight, encouragement, laughter, hope, and maybe even a renewed faith of your own. You may have more than a few spine-tingling moments as you join me to experience these astonishing true stories of the unknown.
