Finally, I reached out to Mabel’s estate for information and her nephew Stephen (who operates the estate) put the idea in my head to write a...

But after sitting down with myself for 18 months jotting down a list of all of the truly odd, bizarre, and often inexplicable experiences I’ve had since a very young age, and especially after my long-dead grandfather visited me decades after he passed away, I simply came to the realization that sometimes paranormal and supernatural events really CAN happen to people in real life.
