R.L.KING guest post . . . Author of ‘DEAD HEART’

Guest Post for All in One Place:
First, allow me to thank you Kirsty for having me for my very first interview ever! Needless to say, I am very glad to be here with you!

Real Paranormal Activity

Have you ever seen a face in the crowd that looks just like someone you once knew that passed on? For a moment, one long bittersweet moment filled with both hope and fear, you believe somehow it really is that person. I know, I do it too, but what if that same concept goes further than that? What if the face we recognize in the crowd really is the ghosts of our loved ones?

The question of whether or not ghosts exist has been answered for the aging Paul Vieyra, successful heart surgeon and loving family man. He has been seeing ghosts in the operating room for a long time. Most of these souls cross over to the other side moments after death, but this mind is haunted by three of his patients who died on his operating table and did not cross over, one of whom openly hates him and blames him for his death.

It isn’t until another ghost begins to haunt his mind, this one a little girl who can make impossible things happen in the real world, that he begins to realize the true reason why his mind is haunted. It also becomes clear that he is going to need the help of all his ghosts if he is going to live long enough to save his sister.   

I have always been fascinated by the idea of ghosts in a way that a haunted house or scary movie could never quite satisfy, and I have always wondered if a doctor sees ghosts of his patients he could not save. I imagine it is the same for war heroes as well. What would our ghosts say if they could talk? What would we say to them? How would we know if we are going crazy or not?

When I sat down to write Dead Heart, I wanted to accomplish a few goals. One was to create a realistic ghost story, one that is at least possible. Another goal was that I wanted to show that a brother’s love for his sister can endure both the extremes in life and the barriers of death. And finally, I wanted to make the story and all the characters both identifiable and relatable, and give it all an ending worth waiting for. The result is a story we can all relate to, at least on one level or another, which might make us at least open our minds to the possibility that there is real paranormal activity going on in our everyday lives.

 I am very happy to host this post and recommend ‘Dead Heart’ to readers of paranormal horror!

‘Dead Heart’ BLURB (taken from Goodreads)

If someone you loved needed your heart, would you give it to them, even if that means you would die? That is the question Doctor Paul Vieyra will have to ask himself as his world comes crashing down around him. To make matters worse, his mind is haunted by the ghosts of those who died on his operating table, one who holds a serious grudge against him, and another that can make thing happen in the real world. When Dr. Vieyra sister’s heart begins to fail and her life fade away, a new heart or surgery are her only chances for survival—a chance no other doctor is willing to take. Dr. Vieyra will risk everything he has and more to for his sister, but the clock is ticking. Will he be able to save his sister’s dead heart in time?
