I have kept my silence long enough…


I would like to address a question that I feel may rise in the minds of many readers about my book. That question is: Why write the book now? The book, Amityville: My Sister’s Keeper – A Story of Death, Deception and the Occult has been on my heart since my sister’s death. I have waited a long time to tell my story. As in all things, timing is everything. I believe that for me, the timing for telling the truth as I lived it, is NOW.

If I am honest about “why now” I have to say that God does things on His calendar—not mine. I really felt that the Lord prodded me to write down the truth and tell mine and my sister’s stories. Forty years is a long time, a generation comes and goes in forty years. The Amityville: My Sister’s Keeper story is now being read by a new generation, different from those who read the original story. And yet, the story still holds interests. It is as if the story of the Amityville house and my sister Kathy Lutz and her husband George touch some universal curiosity about the occult.

In the Bible, a generation was forty years. Generations have significant meaning in the Bible. The Israel people wandered in the desert for forty years. We see “forty days and forty nights” referred to as well. Why the number forty? The Lord fasted forty days in the New Testament.

Is there a significance to the number “40?” I can’t really say. Perhaps the only one who can solve this mystery for us is the Lord.

As for me, even though I have been “wandering in the desert” with this story for forty years, I am grateful that out of the pain and suffering of my sister and her family, the truth is finally being brought into the light. The light chases away the darkness. That simple fact and knowing that Kathy’s story had been told, give me peace.

Over the years, her life has been “impacted by the occult” which led to the writing of this book, Amityville-My Sister’s Keeper: A Story of Death, Deception and the Occult. The book is Sexton’s recollections of events and conver-sations with her sister, Kathy Lutz and her brother-in-law, George Lee Lutz. This is her first full-length book. It reveals the back-story of George and Kathy Lutz before, during, and after they spent their infamous “28 days” in the Amityville House. After forty years of silence, Sexton says that she feels a great weight has lifted from her shoulders. “Finally,” says Sexton, “I can tell people what really happened to my sister and her children.” Sexton is engaged and living in Nevada.
