Meet the spirits who haunt this historic New Mexico city . . . photos included! Old Town Plaza has been the center of Albuquerque community life since the city was founded in 1706 by Governor Francisco Cuervo y Valdez. Historically known as the crossroads of the Southwest, and reflecting an amalgamation of Spanish, Mexican, and Native American cultures, Old Town Plaza has been home to many of New Mexico’s proud ancestors—and still is. Ghosts of Old Town Albuquerque presents the evidence of their specters wandering the shadows, gathered by author Cody Polston, president of the Southwest Ghost Hunter’s Association. Having tracked spirits for three decades, including in such landmarks as the Bottger Mansion and Casa de Ruiz, Polston explores the history and mysteries behind many of Old Town Plaza’s eerie wraiths.

True to its nickname, New Mexico enchants some souls so much they never leave. The Express St. James of Cimarron plays host to the cantankerous spirit of former owner Thomas James "T.J." Wright. At the Trinity Hotel in Carlsbad, Miss Ruby occasionally pranks unwitting guests and still cares for the rooms where she once worked. The gentle ghost of Julie Staab sits weeping at the bar of La Posada when not running bath water in her former room. And in death, Byron T. Mills looks over the Las Vegas Plaza Hotel he owned and neglected in life. Local author Donna Blake Birchell shares the chilling stories of these permanent spectral guests.

Growing Up Psychic is a wonderful, inspirational story. It validates feelings of déjà vu and occurrences that happen that we don’t speak of in the normal course of the day except to someone dearly trusted. It reminds you that there is more going on in life than the traffic jam, the problems with the kids, or the the cards that need to go out. It reminds that life is magical and continuous. I absolutely loved the book. I was so moved it hurts. I feel like sobbing at the same time alive for reading this story of a girl/woman just like everyone else who can’t figure things out and can figure everything out. It also explains a very real question, “if she’s so psychic, then why can’t she win the lottery?” Karen L. Young Hawthorn, NJ “Kate Ellis is one of those uniquely gifted souls who are able to articulate their visions with amazing accuracy. Her perception of the spiritual and psychological worlds is beyond the ordinary. Her acute senses and experiences paint a very vivid picture of the subconscious world we live in. “Growing Up Psychic” is a perfect example of abilities to transend. Reality with words.
