Trivia

  • "The Ghost in the Olive Grove" was inspired by a silly AOL instant message conversation between the author and his friend Amy, in which he jokingly told her where he thought she'd wind up in life. The challenge in writing the story was taking the idea and writing a seriously chilling tale.

Publication History

  • "The Ghost in the Olive Grove" was published in .html format in August of 1999. It was the author's second published short story, and it replaced "The Rainbow-Colored Sheep" on the original Web site. "The Ghost in the Olive Grove" was removed from the site the following month, when it was replaced by the short story "Aries' Cage."
