Lura Ketchledge, Author

As an author, Lura completed a fictional book trilogy titled, ‘The Near-Death Saga’. She grew up in Huntsville, Alabama, Ormond Beach, Florida and Northern Virginia. She moved to New York City as a young adult, then to the beautiful horse country of Lexington Kentucky where she began the long journey of writing her novels. Lura uses all of these places of reference as the setting of her book series.

 Lura studied art history at the New School for Social Research in New York City. She worked on ‘The Joe Franklin Show’ late night TV talk show in NYC. Lura studied under Hollywood screenwriter Charles Edward Pogue where she later wrote, produced, and directed her first movie ‘Another Apocalyptic Zombie Movie.’

Lura has been part of the horse world, either owning horses or living on a horse farm for most of her adult life. Realizing it’s not enough to write a book series or make a movie to get an agent, Lura embarked on her own gorilla marketing campaign. Lura Kethledge's haunted horse farm was featured in Time Money Land magazine in 2011. Since 2009, she has been on over 150 national radio shows and written a number of first person articles for a variety of paranormal online magazines. In 2011 she was a featured guest on the reality TV shows ‘My Ghost Story.’ Lura shared her story about the ghost outside her bedroom window in episode 12 of season 2 titled, ‘Haunted Horse Farm.’ In 2012 ‘My Ghost Story Caught on Camera’ invited her back and created a show based Lura’s haunted phone titled, ‘The Ghost-man Always Rings Twice,’ and was episode 69 of season six that aired in August of 2013. She is the only guest on ‘My Ghost Story’ to be invited back to do a second show.

After being seen on CBS, ABC, Fox and NBC news, different teams of paranormal investigators conducted five separate paranormal investigations at her farm. All the teams had positive findings, including audible EVPs, photographs, and multiple documented video of orbs, thereby confirming the validity of Lura’s personal experiences with the paranormal. Lura is considered a well-respected paranormal expert.
Lura is currently open to sharing treatments, synopses and full book text with legitimate agents and movie studios.
