It’s my birthday today!

Ghost stories. Real-life, spooky happenings that YOU experienced personally.
I love ghost stories. As a writer, they give me ideas and add devilish fuel to my imagination, especially weird tales based on true events. I’m addicted to paranormal documentaries, ghost hunter shows, and horror movies—the scarier, the better. If I have nightmares after watching a movie, then I know it was good.
Therefore, in honor of my birthday in Spooktober, I’d like you, dear reader, to share your scariest, creepiest, real-life ghost story in the comments below. On October 16th, I will pick a winner based on the story that gives me the most chills. The winner will receive a $10 Amazon gift card and an ebook of my superhero romance, A Surefire Way.
Check back on October 16th to see who won. Ghoul luck!
