My name is Elaine Mercado and I am the author of the book, Grave's End, A True Ghost Story, published by Llewellyn Worlwide in 2001. In the years since my book was published, and after the initial booksignings, radio talk show and cable television appearances, there remains a surprisingly steady stream of interest regarding the paranormal activity addressed in the book. This blog is my attempt to answer some of the more common questions that seem to come up for some readers. I also wish to say that I remain very grateful to all the readers of Grave's End. What I thought was just this little book about my family's experiences with the paranormal, has turned out to be so much more. I have a stack of 'thank you' notes from so many people who took the time to share their experiences with me, who thanked me for making them feel less crazy. Some even wrote how reading Grave's End made it easier for them to believe in an afterlife. I am quite grateful for this, and I hope this blog can serve as a vehicle to further explore the existence of ghosts, orbs, electronic voice phoenomena, etc. I am looking forward to expressing my changing views on all things paranormal, as well as exploring the different views of many people out there who have also had encounters with the paranormal.
