In this episode we will talk with paranormal author Lura Ketchledge.
This is her story:
I am a story teller at heart. I have woven little bits of myself in each book I have written. Since I was a girl I have lived, breathed and worshiped the equine. Horses have been my life they have also been my death. In 1979 I was killed in a ridding accident. Between life and death in those few moments before I returned I had a Near Death Experience. Confused, frustrated and some what embarrassed I put a lid on my experience trying to suppress what had happened to me. Like any pot my thoughts, emotions and paranormal experiences began to boil over .One night a little over twenty years ago I dreamt my first book. This wonderful combination of Near Death Experience, creativity and burning curiosity into the paranormal collided forming me into an author. No, I am not another Hemingway but if you planted my novels in a barren desert they would bloom.
I have lived in New York City, Northern Virginia, Ormond Beach Florida, Huntsville Alabama and Lexington Kentucky. The places I have lived provided the settings and locations in my novels. The characters I have created are half imagination and half observation of human nature. I think like my characters, speak like them and part of me becomes the character when I write. I have taken my time carefully laying down the tracks my characters travel through-out my book series.
Right now I am living on a small horse farm on the edge of Lexington Kentucky. Yes I have horses or I should say they have me. My deep compassion for the horse led me to write my second novel Throw Away Horses. It also made me put my money where my mouth was and adopt a rescue horse scheduled for death. Her nick name is my little slaughter house special. Today this gentle, throw away horse spends her time in my fields grazing and power napping with my sweet retired gelding.
