Patience Worth

Here is a mystery from the early 20th Century about a suburban housewife from St Louis in Missouri. She was called Pearl Curran and her life had always been quite ordinary until she decided to use a Ouija board while having tea with her mother and friends. Back in the early 20th Century, it was fashionable to play with Ouija boards and dabble in the occult. Pearl might've been quite skeptical approaching this at first as she regarded it as "silly".
When the pointer announced the name of a spirit called Patience Worth, the women became excited about using the board for much longer. Pearl especially grew to enjoy communicating with Patience Worth, who identified herself as an English woman of the 17th Century. Pearl wrote literature while she was being channelled by this spirit. Some of the works by the spirit of Patience Worth include "Hope Trueblood," "Rain Song," and "The Sorry Tale."
For more of her writings go and visit this website:

A link to see other authors, including Pearl Curran a.k.a. Patience Worth, who wrote on behalf of ghosts and spirits:

For more info about this mystery go to:
Prairie Ghosts: Patience Worth 
My view:
This could all be a matter of overactive imagination or stepping into character mode. It might even be that a spirit wrote through Pearl and other spirits might've helped people create literature in the same way.  
Howls ^^
