She’s a DJ to the dead. Cathy Gasch, author of My Life Amidst the Paranormal, returns for the second part of her interview on episode 74, Ghost DJ! Cathy has been seeing the dead all her life. She returns to tell us more ghost stories from her experiences and what it’s like living as a psychic. She even has a dead client who hangs out behind and sends her requests for an internet radio station. Also, Jasper Bark, British horror author, completes his interview, telling new indie authors what to expect when getting into a changing writing industry. New authors, heed his words! And, we play Cathy’s true ghost story, The Irish Millhouse, an experience she had while visiting Ireland. She’s an amazing storyteller, psychic and paranormal adventurer, Cathy Gasch.



Cathy E. Gasch was born, raised, went to school, worked and still lives in the state of Maryland. She is currently semi-retired and lives in Washington County with her husband of thirty seven years and seven cats. She enjoys working in her yard and garden and enjoys making crafts. Most of Cathy’s leisure time is spent reading and researching family history as well as historical locations. She loves to travel and has been to Ireland, Scotland, England and many wonderful and fascinating places in the United States. Cathy’s paranormal experiences have spanned over 50 years, and through them, she continues to learn about herself and the world, often times, through the eyes of those who have passed on.


Cathy E. Gasch has been able to sense the paranormal all of her life. Take a journey with her through haunted houses and ancient ruins across three different countries, and discover for yourself what it’s like to be sensitive to the paranormal. Mischievous ghosts, spectral apparitions, and forgotten souls abound in this collection of true spooky tales!

Cathy did a great job describing what she has experienced of the spirit world since she was a child. It is down-to-earth (pun intended) and an easy read. Cathy’s stories and experiences may make believers of those who don’t “believe.” You just might relate to one or more of her spirit encounters. The book highlights the fact that young children often are more open to, and accepting of, the reality of spirits among us.Amazon Reviewer 

As I lay there shivering I looked toward to the door that led out into the hallway and noticed that a white light was shimmering along the wall going all the way to the large window that overlooked the stream! — The Irish Millhouse from Cathy Gasch

Jasper Bark – How to Publish Horror

Jasper Bark is infectious. If you’re reading this then you’re already at risk of contamination. The symptoms will begin to manifest any moment now. There’s nothing you can do about it. You’ll become obsessed with his work, from the award winning collections Dead Air and Stuck on You and Other Prime Cuts, to cult novels like Way of the Barefoot Zombie and acclaimed graphic novels such as Bloodfellas and Beyond Lovecraft. Soon you’ll want to tweet, post and blog about his work until thousands of others fall under its spell. We’re afraid there is no way to avoid this, these words contain a power you are hopeless to resist. You’re already in their thrall and have been since you started this book. Even now you find yourself itching to read the rest of his work. Don’t fight it, give in to the urge and succumb to the joyous derangement it brings.

(A Horror Medical Thriller Novel from Blood Bound Books.)

FANGORIA gives MERCY 3.5 out 4 Skulls – “Dunham has channeled his many brushes with the other side into the exquisitely rendered, lyrical supernatural hospital thriller MERCY.READ FULL REVIEW HERE.



Author Tim Waggoner

Part medical horror, part supernatural suspense, MERCY is a hard-hitting fever dream of a novel. I enjoyed the hell out of it!” ~ Tim Waggoner, author of The Way of All Flesh and Eat The Night

Pain and poetry flow in equal measure through these pages. Dunham’s prose strikes deep and hits all the right notes. MERCY is unforgettably vivid.” ~ David Dunwoody, author of Hell Walks and The 3 Egos

William Saint is dying of cancer. On most days death seems like a humane alternative to the treatment. Stricken with fever, William is rushed to Mercy—notorious as a place to send the sickest of the poor and uninsured to be forgotten—and finds the hospital in even worse condition than his previous visit. The grounds are unkempt, the foundation is cracking, and like the wild mushrooms sprouting from fissures of decay around it, something is growing inside the hospital. Something dark. It’s feeding on the sickness and sustaining itself on the staff, changing them. And now it wants Willie.

This was my death.

Life is an addiction.

Love is the only force that is real. Read . . . and understand what I saw. I put it in metaphor. You do not understand what you do not understand.
