[Keta Diablo] Hello! My Introduction
« on: October 15, 2018, 06:42:11 PM »
Hello everyone! I'm Keta Diablo, romance author in several genres.

I live in the Midwest part of the US on six acres of woodland. We have trees, lots and lots of trees here, and with wooded areas comes lots of wild life. Our favorite to study and watch are a pair or barn owls that return every year to birth their young. It's so much fun to watch them train their adorable, white-faced babies to hunt and eat.

I write historical romance (mostly hot), contemporary romance (sometimes New Adult), and always paranormal no matter the genre. I have an obsession with ghosts, it seems. Probably because I saw them as a child. Really, I did. Now, ghosts walk on to the stage in my books, always as secondary characters. Sometimes they're humorous and friendly and sometimes their sinister and revengeful. I start the story and once they're on board, they decide if they're going to be naughty or nice. Do you like ghosts? Have you had any experience with them in your life?

Welcome, Keta. I too write about ghosts -- past, present and future. I can't say that I've had direct experiences with ghosts -- more like unexplained 1 in a billion coincidences that are hard to explain otherwise. These types of events show up in my novels, leaving ambiguity about whether the ghosts exist or not. Some of my characters believe; some don't -- reflecting my personal ambiguity on the subject.

Hi MissingAlaska,

Thanks so much for contacting me.  :clap: Writing about ghosts has been fascinating for me. Truly, one day I was looking through my back list of books and realized how many have a ghost between the pages. I didn't consciously think about it before then. I was a little surprised. The ghosts don't usually play a major role (never a major character) and not every character in my books believes in ghosts. Most didn't to begin with until they were forced to by a series of events from the ghost that forced them to acknowledge their presence. A character from A Ghost To Die For admittedly could and did commune with the dead, and thus, believed in their presence among us.

I certainly don't expect every reader that picks up one of my books to pre-believe in spirits. Many don't think they walk among us, many do. That's a personal belief, many times based on personal experience with a spirit.

I happened to see spirits as a child, beginning at the age of 3. My mother will sttest to that and remembers it well. I insisted they were in my bedroom (a very old house) and she insisted they weren't. She couldn't see them, which made me very frustrated. As a child, I couldn't understand why she couldn't see what I saw. They were as clear as my hand in front of me. I still remember them, but no longer see them. Somehow, my conscious mind turned off the ability to see spirits from another world. Only through the eyes of an innocent, unknowing child, I guess.

Thanks again. Ghosts, for me, are a fascinating topic, but then I gravitate toward the paranormal often in my romance books.

Nice meeting you. Hope we can chat again soon.
