I am currently working on a serial fiction collection entitled, The Haunted Collection. The Kindle edition of the third short work went live today on Amazon!
Remembered – The Ghosts of Katrina
In 2005, Hurricane Katrina ripped through New Orleans, Louisiana leaving devastation and ruin in its path. Following a mandatory evacuation order, many people fled to safety. For reasons of their own, others stayed to ride out the storm. Many did not make it, but those who did faced days of isolation as up to three feet of water covered the city when the levees broke.
In this fictional tale, one unlikely couple bunker down in the French Quarter and wait for the waters to recede. They think they’ve found safety among friends in the abandoned city but one of them encounters a presence so evil it will turn their world upside down.
When psychic genius Thomas Lynch sees accounts of paranormal activity in New Orleans on the news, he convinces his boss, paranormal investigator David Dean, to take him there to investigate. What they find there will change them forever.
In keeping with the cleaning of my mental cobwebs, I have also cleaned and reorganized my writing space. This is a very important step for a reemerging author. You need a space that sparks your imagination. One that keeps you focused, but that feels like a safe space to put your most sensitive work on paper.
I know that most writers, like me, believe that a cluttered space is a sure sign of a writers mind at work, but even I can’t focus on writing while thinking about the last time I vacuumed my office! I have now surrounded myself with things that I love, including my new X Files Pop Vinyl collection, and I’m ready to grow some creative clutter!
A lot has changed in my life in the past few years and, unfortunately, I fell off the writing wagon again. With multiple unfinished manuscripts and commitments, I needed to go out in to the world and earn a living that would sustain a freshly single mother with a mortgage and plethora of two income bills!
I can finally say that I have comfortably reestablished myself and can now commit to writing again! Just typing those words feels like freedom!
As the days turn to weeks I hope to have completed the third book in my paranormal series and continued work on a young adult piece that I am creating for my nephew. Both are long overdue.
Stop by and see my progress! I’ve missed you!
Brenda Williams Archer grew up in a small community in the middle of Cajun country on Bayou Beouf. The house she grew up in was built in the 1950’s on the site of an old plantation. The plantation house was torn down because of all the paranormal activity associated with it. Doors and windows being opened, objects being moved, etc.
The house that was built on the plantation site started having similar activity, but only when she was around. Once she moved out, all of the activity stopped in the house. However, it never stopped for her.
She started doing research on paranormal happenings and haunting. The more she read, the more excited she became because she realized she was not alone and that others experienced the same things. She began going with friends to graveyards and old houses trying to find things and “speak” to spirits.
Over the years, she’s had different experiences. She has seen visions of things that happened in certain places. She has had names pop into her head, only to find that someone with that name was either buried in the particular graveyard she was in or lived at the house she was investigating.
About a year ago, she learned of Louisiana Spirits Paranormal Investigators. She contacted them and requested to join. Now she belongs to the largest paranormal team in the South and she hasn’t looked back.
Brenda is very passionate about the paranormal and doesn’t mind sharing her experiences with those who may be interested. I asked Brenda to share her knowledge and experiences with m. To read my interview with Brenda, click here: Brenda Williams Archer Interview on Hubpages
