Black Cat Press of Forked River, New Jersey was founded in 2000 by Lynda Lee Macken, a native New Yorker, who continues to combine her interest in history with stories of the paranormal.

She has chronicled supernatural tales and legends since her own ghostly sighting of Grace Brown whose 1906 murder in New York State’s Adirondack Mountains inspired a novel and a motion picture. The 19-year-old Brown was drowned in Big Moose Lake in 1906. The homicide formed the basis of novelist Theodore Dreiser's An American Tragedy and the 1951 film A Place in the Sun.

Macken's encounter was presented on the Unsolved Mysteries television series. It also led her to write her first book — Adirondack Ghosts: Stories of Spirits in New York State’s North Country

Henri Bergson
“Fortunately, some are born with spiritual immune systems that sooner or later give rejection to the illusory worldview grafted upon them from birth through social conditioning. They begin sensing that something is amiss, and start looking for answers. Inner knowledge and anomalous outer experiences show them a side of reality others are oblivious to, and so begins their journey of awakening. Each step of the journey is made by following the heart instead of following the crowd and by choosing knowledge over the veils of ignorance.”
Henri Bergson

“I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.”

“Read, read, read. That's all I can say.”
