On Haunted Ground - Guest Post by Lisa Rogers

Today I have a guest: Lisa Rogers.
She wrote the book On Haunted Ground, a true account of two decades of terrifying, funny, and heartwarming paranormal encounters.


When people find out that I live in a haunted house, they always ask the same question. “What’s the scariest thing that’s ever happened to you?”

Even though I’ve been asked this, many, many times, I always come up with the same eloquent authorly answer of, “Uh… I dunno.”

In truth, the whole reason behind my writing On Haunted Ground, was to show that contrary to what the movies depict, ghosts aren’t always scary. I know that as a society, we’ve been taught that ghosts are horrible awful things that we should fear, but in my experience, this isn’t always true. Not only have I lived with ghosts (peacefully for the most part) for 28 years, I’ve met several other people who live in haunted houses that say the same thing.

Most people are very surprised to hear me say that if I could change the fact that ghosts live in my home, I wouldn’t. While I know this concept seems outlandish to many, a while back I had an unforgettable experience involving an entity that actually prevented my precious little grandson from taking a bad fall.

With all of that said, I’d also like to say that if I claimed I had never been afraid of our ghosts, I’d be lying. When you’re at home alone and you see someone standing in your dining room, it tends to make your heart race a little bit. The same can be said by knowing that someone you can’t see has tucked your daughter into bed, and capturing a man’s voice on a recorder makes one to want to flee from the house screaming.

Even though I’ve had many incidents that have scared the bejabbers out of me, I can honestly say, I’ve never met an entity that I would consider to have been malicious. Am I just lucky? Maybe, but I don’t necessarily think so. I’m sure some of the horrific accounts of terrifying hauntings are true, but I think most people who live with ghosts do so peacefully and many times they are even unaware that they are living with ghosts at all.


On Haunted Ground: The Green Ghost and Other Spirits of Cemetery Road

Lisa Rogers sensed that the house she bought with her husband Wes came with a ghost. But nothing prepared them for doors slamming on their own, objects flying, and the nightly appearance of a freaky green orb in their bedroom. Their two children had opposing views on the paranormal activity. While Keshia grew attached to the grandmotherly ghost who taught her not to be afraid of thunderstorms and the Native American spirit that tucked her into bed, her brother Troy wasn't quick to believe in their unearthly guests.

This amazing true story details two decades of terrifying, funny, and heartwarming paranormal encounters--the mischievous entity that imitated the voice of each family member, the spool that "came to life" to chase the kids, the shocking events that shake Wes and Troy's skepticism--and the enduring love that keeps the family together through it all.

Wow, this sure sounds spooky. I am not so sure I would have wanted to stay in a haunted house myself, even though I really do believe there is more then what we can see.
