    I received this email this morning concerning a hub I wrote about the Ghost of Cape May:

    Hi! I'm an author researching Jersey Shore ghosts for a forthcoming book. Can you tell me more about the paranormal activity in your family's former home? I've written about haunted places in Cape May in a previous book. It's almost as if the entire town is haunted! It's fascinating... Pls feel free to check out my website:  www.lyndaleemacken.com.

    Looking forward to hearing from you...!

    Lynda Lee

    I checked out the website and it looks legit as she has published many books concerning the paranormal. I'm just not sure how this works if I were to tell her about our family homes. My husbands family has owned 2 in Cape May both haunted. Does anyone have any advice on how to go about this. You can check out my hub in my profile.

    Hello
    An approach like this is certainly a legitimate way for an author to research and flesh out their specialist topic. 

    It's quite fascinating that she found you on hubpages though.  That's fantastic and flattering.

    I suggest, if you want to, that you contact her and see where it takes you.  You can then ask her how the process works.

    Hope that helps.
