I've written for as long as I can remember but the Ghosts in the Burbs blog was the first thing I ever sent out into the world. Moving to the suburbs was a difficult transition for me and writing was a huge comfort. I found that something about the burbs is so dark beneath its bright and shiny facade so it brought all of the scary stories, monster movies and reality ghost shows I've devoured my whole life to the surface for me. The perfectly landscaped yards, beautiful homes and high achieving neighbors created the perfect setting and characters for my scary stories. The blog was the first thing I put out and then because I am a huge podcast fan I thought it might be fun to create my own. I NEVER imagined anyone would listen to it though! Thank you so very much for your question!! - Liz(less)

Claire, by Liz Sower

Claire

I received my first professional review!

Wellesley author pens spooky ghost story, in which Mrs. Swellesley makes an appearance.

By Deborah Brown of the Swellesley Report

A couple year ago Wellesley was blessed with a new blog, Ghosts in the Burbs. Or cursed. It all depends on how you feel about spine-tingling ghost stories all set in Wellesley, a town that apparently attracts spirits galore, b Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Liz Sower  (?)

“I grew up in a haunted house, and at one time I could see and hear ghosts, but I learned to deny all of it. I learned to stuff it all down and keep myself distracted so I wouldn’t have to face the truth. But the truth makes itself known in strange ways – in crippling anxiety; in binge drinking; in relentless escapism; in bloody, bitten fingernails.”
Liz Sower, Claire

“She says I am lucky I was chosen for the first wave.”
Liz Sower, Lilith: A Ghosts in the Burbs Story

“Oh, everything! The place where it happened, and the weapon, and the body, and any finger-prints or interesting things like that. I’ve never had a chance of being right in on a murder like this before. It’ll last me all my life?” I turned away, sickened. What were women coming to nowadays? The girl’s ghoulish excitement nauseated me. I had read of the mobs of women who besieged the law courts when some wretched man was being tried for his life on the capital charge. I had sometimes wondered who these women were. Now I knew. They were of the likeness of Cinderella, young, yet obsessed with a yearning for morbid excitement, for sensation at any price, without regard to any decency or good feeling. The vividness of the girl’s beauty had attracted me in spite of myself, yet at heart I retained my first impression of disapproval and dislike. I thought of my mother, long since dead. What would she have said of this strange modern product of girlhood? The pretty face with the paint and powder, and the ghoulish mind behind!”
Agatha Christie, The Murder on the Links

“That’s why I say, go down to the country, take a house, get interested in local politics, in local scandal, in village gossip. Take an inquisitive and violent interest in your neighbours. If I may make a suggestion, go to a part of the world where you haven’t got any friends scattered about.”
Agatha Christie, The Moving Finger

“The doctor’s sister, who rejoiced in the singularly inappropriate name of Aimée, had all the positive assurance that her brother lacked.”
Agatha Christie, The Moving Finger
