Andrea Perron is the author of the trilogy "House of Darkness House of Light". These books chronicle the childhood she shared with dead and living alike in a Colonial era farmhouse in Harrisville, R.I. during the 1970's. Born in 1958, at the age of twelve, her parents purchased the old Arnold Estate, beginning an incredible odyssey beyond the realm of reality as most perceive it to be. A collective memoir, the books detail the encounters experienced by every member of her family. Seven mere mortals spent a decade exploring the vast expanse of possibilities which exist beyond the five senses, employing the sixth for clarity. It proved to be an enlightening endeavor. Each one of them was profoundly changed for life because they witnessed manifestations of the afterlife. The Perron family finally left the farm behind but it will never really leave them.
Andrea received a B.A. in English and Philosophy from Chatham College, graduating in 1980. The farm had been sold in her absence. Two weeks later they moved to Georgia where she resided for seven years before returning to Rhode Island, her home in heart. Since that time she has owned two businesses and spent nearly a decade as a counselor before abandoning her career to tell this story, to go write the books she believes she was destined to write. Moving south again to be among family while drafting the manuscript, for seven years she lived quietly with her mother and sister Christine in rural Georgia. Having recently relocated to Florida, she continues her work, branching out further in her interests, sometimes (by her own admission) out on a limb. Andrea is a human rights advocate, an animal rights activist and an outspoken member of the global community. In passionate pursuit of the truth in all matters, spreading what knowledge she possesses far and wide, her heartfelt desire is to be a positive influence, to make a real difference in the world.
About the books ~
"House of Darkness House of Light" is no ordinary ghost story. It poses far more questions than it answers and compels the reader to ponder some uncomfortable concepts, including the certain knowledge that there is something beyond mortal existence. Andrea describes their old home place in the country as a portal cleverly disguised as a farmhouse. Theirs is essentially a cosmic love story with a wicked supernatural twist. It isn't what people expect, certainly not just a series of scary stories. Anyone unprepared for its darkest corners should choose less dense reading material, according to the author. This true story
functions as "interactive
literature" for many who report being deeply impacted by it. Though it was
not written to be a horrifying tale, it has had that effect on some, an
unintended consequence. Instead, it is meant to be assimilated, absorbed slowly
and deliberately; read like a lengthy lamentation or a spiritual meditation,
taking the reader on a decade-long excursion through the darkness into the
Light of higher consciousness, imbuing participants with a heightened level of
awareness in the process. No one leaves its pages unaltered by the experience,
as was the family who initially had these exceedingly close encounters with
About the farm ~
Roger and Carolyn Perron purchased the farmhouse in 1970 then spent the next ten years discovering that good and evil engage in a perpetual state of war in a place where time is suspended, irrelevant in shared space. It is a window to the past and future alike, a point of epiphany for those who comprehend its contents. Death is not the end and may, in fact, be only the beginning. The Perron family waited more than thirty years to tell the truth about what happened in their home. They required time to process what occurred and the world had to be ready to receive the message. As Carolyn explains: "This is not the kind of thing one should rightfully take to the grave." It demands courage and an open mind but, by all accounts, the world IS ready for "House of Darkness House of Light".
About the film ~
The feature film "The Conjuring" portrays elements of the story in broad, sweeping strokes, painting a motion picture of the struggle between good and evil as the triumph of love over fear. The fine lines of history are etched upon the pages of an extensive manuscript. Many aspects of the film were fictionalized but the books tell the whole truth. "The Conjuring" was based on the investigative case files of Ed and Lorraine Warren. The books come directly from the source, the entire family who experienced these supernatural shenanigans, some of which were more severe than anything represented on film. This is a classic case of the truth being stranger than fiction.
What does the future hold? ~
Of course, no one knows...no crystal ball. Life is a wonder to behold, a mystery to unravel. Andrea is currently focusing her attention and energy on several projects, including a joint venture with her partner in all things paranormal, George R. Lopez. "In A Flicker" was published in October of 2015 and is receiving rave reviews from around the world. She co-hosts a weekly radio broadcast with him on the network he founded, Dead Air Paranormal Radio. "A World Awakening" addresses myriad topics and issues, concepts critical to spiritual evolution and the ongoing exploration of cosmic consciousness. Likewise, she is collaborating with a screenwriter to bring the trilogy to the silver screen. Her research has taken her back to a lifelong love of Ufology. She lectures with George regarding "The Merging of Science and Spirituality" at various venues and conferences around the country.

She and George can also be found on Facebook (the "official" home of the paranormal) at "A World Awakening", "In a Flicker" and "House of Darkness House of Light" as well as their personal pages. The adventure continues....
