It is like asking a mother which of her children is her favorite. I only had one child, but if I had more, I always felt I would not differentiate between one child to another. Some books, I felt I wrote better. But I like to leave it up to the readers to decide. I will admit I think my new one to release September 28th, Paranormal Petersburg, Virginia, and the Tri-Cities Area is the best I have done, but each ghost book has their own different places and information to give to the reader. Same goes for my fiction books. Though Spectre Nightmares and Visitations is all my stories. The anthologies I have one story included. (less)

Haunted Richmond II-Pamela K. Kinney”
Pamela K. Kinney

“Hauntingly active as they share space with the living, the dead refuse to give up their undead residency.”
Pamela K. Kinney, Paranormal Petersburg, Virginia, and the Tri-Cities Area

“The demonic face stared up at him. It had horns, a Snidely Whiplash mustache and a nasty grin.”
Pamela K. Kinney, "Let Demon Dogs Lie," Southern Haunts: Devils in the Darkness

“Lee leaned closer to her and swore he could smell fear coming off her in waves, the way a shark smells blood in the water”
Pamela K. Kinney "Let Demon Dogs Lie " Southern Haunts Devils in the Darkness

“A prickle of awareness made the hairs at the back of his neck stand. A deep chill sank into his flesh to settle around his heart, squeezing it. Skeletal fingers scraped along his spine and he wanted to look back over his shoulder, but couldn’t. No, he didn’t dare. If he saw what caused the sound it might be more than he could handle. Rooted to the ground, he couldn’t twitch a finger or twist his head around. His lips glued together, so he couldn’t speak.”
Pamela K. Kinney, "Let Demon Dogs Lie," Southern Haunts: Devils in the Darkness

“A black dog, tall and wide as a full grown man, took a couple of steps toward them. It bared sharp, yellow fangs big as Bowie knifes. Drool dripped from them to the dried grass below. Unable to help it, Lee wet his pants when he saw the animal’s eyes. It had four glowing orbs that burned with a smoldering red light like the fires of Hell.”
