Aliens & UFOs

Have you ever had a UFO experience or an alien encounter? I have. And I relate my experiences about those encounters in the article, Aliens In My Life – True UFO Encounters.

UFO and alien subjects raise eyebrows in people who don't believe in things they haven't seen, touched, smelled, heard, or tasted. Some people think that those of us who admit to having witnessed them must be crazy or misguided. I don't judge those people. Until they experience first-hand situations they can't understand, they won't believe in anything that can't be proven to them.

However, I do believe that some minds have opened somewhat in regard to UFO phenomena. Ever since the television show, The X-Files, and, more recently the movie by the same name, attention to UFOs and aliens has interested more than just people who claim to have been abducted by aliens (I'm not one of them) or who have experienced UFO phenomena. The FBI has case files (link provided in the above article) with pages of witnesses who attest to having seen UFO activity.

I saw the cover of the book above while wandering through a book store shortly after Communion was published in 1987. My reaction to seeing that picture was the catalyst for reminding me of my experience with aliens. I invite you to read Aliens In My Life – True UFO Encounters, because I'm still looking for people who witnessed what I saw in the early 1970's in a suburb of Chicago.

Ghosty Girl Leslie Rule

Leslie Rule is a paranormal writer who just happens to be the daughter of one of my favorite crime authors, Ann Rule. Leslie crosses genres when she writes about ghosts who have been murdered. She writes about other ghosts too, but the fact that I have been reading her mother and just can't make sense of the criminal mind just makes Leslie's work all the more fascinating.

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing her and posted the article HERE. If you have any interest in reading books about ghostly encounters, you will love her books. She doesn't just write about what she hears, she researches her subjects and introduces them to her readers. Her work is haunting and enjoyable.

The part that I enjoy the most though, is the thought that all those wicked, deceitful rapists and murderers may one day be exposed by the very people they killed. Talk about justice!

Please read the Leslie Rule interview and take advantage of the links provided in the article to read more in-depth synopses of her books.
