MA: After reading and loving The Unseen, I have to ask, have you ever had a ghost encounter?
HG: I can’t say I’ve walked down a misty street and run into a ghost. My mother was born in Ireland and they believed in everything. I grew up around her family and my grandmother watched us. If we were misbehaving, she would threaten us with “The banshee will be getting you in the outhouse!” She did such a good job with it. We were teenagers and we didn’t even have an outhouse, but she could threaten us so well.
