Blog Tour: Coral Russell

Today, I’m happy to host Coral Russell, author of Amador Lockdown. Take it away, Coral!

I have had strange experiences in my life that has led me to believe that there is ‘something’ beyond this life. One of the most memorable experiences was with my husband. We bought a one hundred year old house. It was 2400 square feet. The upstairs and downstairs consisted of a wide room at least thirty feet long with two ceiling fans. The foyer of the house was done in oak and had three flights of stairs. My husband worked during the day and I worked part-time at night and would get home about 11pm.

Our house was on the corner and for weeks now I had driven up to a house ablaze with light. My husband had turned every single light in the house on and there were many windows so you could see it from a couple of blocks away. I begged him to think of the electricity and please turn off the lights. Surely he didn’t need every light in the house on when it got dark.

He mumbled something or other and I still came home to find the house all lit up. It was welcoming, but I dreaded receiving the electric bill.

One night we were watching TV downstairs. The TV was in front of a big picture window at one end of the big room downstairs. We had a loveseat in front of the TV and to our left was the foyer. I’m not sure when we became aware of footsteps overhead, but they were at least twenty to twenty-five feet behind where we were sitting. My husband and I both turned and looked up. The footsteps were walking straight down the middle of the room and the ceiling fan directly behind us shook a little as they passed.

Then the footsteps proceeded down the stairs. The staircase was old and every step creaked loudly. As the footsteps continued down the three flights of stairs, my husband and I leaned forward and looked into the foyer fully expecting to see a person enter the foyer. The footsteps stopped. Only there was no one there.

For the first time my husband and I looked at each other. We had been speechless this entire time. Then my husband jumped up, turned to me and said, β€œSee, that’s the same #$%* that’s been going on every night in this house!”

I never asked him to turn off the lights again.

  1. Looks like an interesting read. Something to add to my Amazon wish list. Already have 3 I’m reading now but I’ll def pick this one up. Thanks guys!! πŸ™‚

    1. LOL No, but our next door neighbor can officially be blamed for getting me involved. He told us about EVP and we had an impromptu investigation. His family and ours are still good friends.

        1. Well the only we caught was a male voice saying “Holy smokes.” and that just seemed odd because it’s kind of an old saying that the two men in the house at the time didn’t say or use.

    1. It’s weird because even though that happened and I had some other strange things happen, we loved that house. At one point we had all four kids with us (my step kids) and there was enough room for everyone and we had a lot of fun.

      When my daughter was very young and seemed to not be sleeping well for a week, we did pull out the holy water and did a house blessing. After that my daughter slept well and not much happened.

  2. Oh wow – I’m a nut for this kind of stuff – when we moved into our house, the light to the front porch started going on by itself…I’m sure there’s a scientific explanation, but it still creeped me out. Great post & congrats on your first tour!
