The other day I was thinking about the reason why I started writing about the paranormal. What GhostTheory represents and what writing does for me. As a writer, I find myself spending a lot of time contemplating life. I don’t just surround myself with the paranormal. Many of you might be aware that I write about the paranormal as a hobby.

I know this because I’ve seen things that I cannot explain. I’ve seen things, as clear as day (or night), that defy all logical thought. I’ve seen a Shadow Person. I know deep in my heart that what I saw was not a trick of light or my imagination. Yet those who I share this story with look at me like I’m crazy…
