Hello! Thanks for visiting The Ghost Book, I hope you’re enjoying the site. Here, you can find out a little more about me and how The Ghost Book came about.
My name’s Lorien, I’m currently 38 years old and I launched The Ghost Book back in 2013. The desire was to create a place where people could read about ghosts, discover haunted places and learn a little about investigating the paranormal. Reading about haunted places that no longer existed, or were no longer accessible left me feeling frustrated. I wanted a more tangible experience, to create an opportunity that allowed people to discover and explore these haunted locations for themselves.
Back in the 80s, I was the kid who headed straight for the books about ghosts at the library. I’d be completely absorbed in the tales from the dead, and then have to sleep with the landing light on at night. The thrilling, terrifying fascination was there from a young age. Most people who would tell you similar, go on to explain some profound experience they had as a child like seeing their dead grandfather in their bedroom. I had no such experience, which intrigues me all the more as to why I had such an early introduction to the obsession, for want of a better word.
