Demons and Demonology

A few months ago I read a book called Devils and Demonology: In the 21st Century by Katie Boyd. Boyd is a demonologist, although not the type you might be familiar with. Instead of being a priest or an ecclesiastical authority of any kind, Boyd is an occultist who works with people of various faiths, including Hindus and Buddhists. In the book she talks about demons, negative spirits or energies from a variety of faith systems, giving an interesting perspective on the subject. While not the best book about demonolgy or the occult, it was interesting and free since I checked it out from the library.

Writing About Utah's Haunted Old Mill

This August 12 marks the four year anniversary since the first time I wrote and published something about the Old Mill. You can see my original article here. Since then I think about the Old Mill often. There is something about the old building nestled up by the mountains that is mesmerizingly creepy. I've thrown around the idea of writing a book about the mill a few times, but it seems something always comes up when I do.

I think that finally is about to change.
