Remembering Ghostbusters Ed and Lorraine Warren




I was the literary agent for Ghostbusters Ed and Lorraine Warren in the 80’s, after they had already become famous from their work on The Amityville Horror. I love a good ghost story and had been watching CNN when a Pennsylvania family got on the news requesting the Catholic Church exorcise their home. As a journalist who had become a literary agent, I told my husband that I couldn’t wait to read the book, and he said, “You used to be a journalist.  Go get the story,” so I found myself in their haunted living room with the velvet paintings of Elvis within a week.  Ed and Lorraine Warren were advising the family, and I convinced them to leave their William Morris agent and go with me.  We put together a proposal for a book that became The Haunted which went to a two-day auction and eventually became and Emmy-Award-winning TV movie.

I was their agent for seven books, but after a while the stories all started to sound the same, and there was only so much excitement I could muster for demons in the attic, exploding ectoplasm in the toilets and succubae everywhere.  But I have to say they believed every word they said.

I had been to their haunted museum, where they had told me the story of Annabelle, and I said that no one would be afraid of a haunted doll.  I should have remembered that Twilight Zone episode.

But it was time for me to go on to represent other things like erotica and paranormal romance

I am so glad that Ed and Lorraine’s tales of things that do more than go bump in the night found another generation. They were a fascinating couple, who worked side by side until Ed passed in 2006.  If my memory serves correctly, they met because Ed loved painting haunted places and Lorraine could read auras.  Someone should write a real paranormal romance about them!

I do hope they are continuing their investigations from beyond.

Instead of blasting the air conditioner to keep cool in summer, wear clothes made from naturally cooling fabrics. Natural fibers like cotton can absorb moisture from your skin, helping you feel cooler. You can also try wearing lighter colors, they help you feel cooler, lessening your need for artificial cold air.bhakti Bhajan
