Jackals of the Night is based on traumatic and abusive incidents in a young girl’s life. These nightmares that started were begun from the seeds of these occurrences. The spirits that haunted her and never left until their time here on earth finally ran out and they were sucked back into the hell they belonged to. Those Jackals of the Night were predators. They hid in the closets, in the hallways, and truly within real life. Wearing their masks, pretending they were caring people: the so-called protectors that turned their backs on this young child. These are people that never believed the truth.
P. Mesta is has a career that stems for 38 years and now is writing about haunting incidents that have been analyzed and looked at thoroughly. She feels that children see things on a different level then grownups do and being a product of a child born in the 50’s , she has had a similar life on how “no one listens” which was so true in that decade. Being seen and not heard is what was preached throughout most of the young lives of children from that era. “Do as I say and not as I do,” was another saying that was preached to the children of the 50’s. Certain stories were never told and writing them down can help prevent the silent world of a child’s unknown life. Having nightmares and dreams that have come true over her own life time , have made her into an author , hoping to open the eyes to the silent world that young children face when, “ no one is listening.” What is nothing to us can create a major trauma in a young child’s life. Not every haunting or boogie man is pretend. The nightmares that the predators appear in are hauntings that this young child dealt for years and years.
