RALEIGH, N.C., Nov. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Local Fantasy Sci-Fi author Max W. Miller doesn't look to movies like Poltergeist, Insidious, or Ghostbusters to develop her first draft. She gleans ideas from her personal experiences. Max's life has taught her that beyond a Hollywood movie set, the paranormal erupts with what she calls Supernaturally Normal events.
Max said, "People with families, nine-to-five jobs, and a grocery shopping list to fill, will experience at least one paranormal event in their lifetime—while sleeping or awake. At some point, a scientifically unexplained phenomenon will insert itself into a situation—for good or bad—whether seen as angels, demons, or troubled souls unable to move on. They will show up and leave an individual story inside the mind of who they visit."
As a scared little girl terrified that monsters were peering through the darkness waiting to eat her, Max became mesmerized when silky sheets of fluffy floating rainbows, bold and colorful, came into her bedroom and seemed to wave at her from the ceiling. This phenomenon left her totally calm—monsters gone. Max went to sleep.
By her late teens, she seriously questioned her sanity when some dreams began to come true, and from time to time, she'd hear echoey footsteps, or feel a presence coming toward her. Many times at night she'd open her eyes to glimpse an entity standing in her doorway or next to her bed. The appearances are usually brief; at times she could relate it to an event or a warning for someone.
Since other family members were prone to similar experiences, it took Max a while to understand that not every Williams family in America had such vivid Supernaturally-Normal events—like when one of her brothers (who will remain nameless) saw an angel. This brother, who she teasingly says she fears to name, ran as if his life depended on him getting away from the glorious visitor. The angel said something like: "Wait, don't leave," but her brother apparently heard, "Run for your life before I kill you." This visitation is one of many family jokes.
