Description

Auteur

Donna L. Marsh has always loved a good ghost story. Growing up in Maysville, Kentucky, she cleaned the local library out of every book she could find by the age of 10. When the family moved to her father's birthplace of Cookeville, Tennessee, in the mid-1970s, that love went with her. She found the library and started over on a new set of books. A single mother, Marsh resides in Nashville with her younger son, a talented musician who plays nine instruments, and the Hounds of Hell, a weimaraner with ADHD and one diva of a Pembroke Welsh corgi. Her older son, a board-game enthusiast and self-proclaimed pop-culture guru, attends graduate school on the West Coast. Marsh spends her days writing a column about ghosts and hauntings and her nights investigating them with the American Paranormal Society, a group she helped found in 2003.
This is Jeff Morris's third book. His first two, Haunted Cincinnati and Southwest Ohio and Cincinnati Haunted Handbook, were both about his hometown of Cincinnati, where he lives with his wife and two children. Morris founded a ghost tour in Miamitown, Ohio, in 2006 and still runs it to this day.
Garett Merk is the founder of the Tri-State Paranormal and Oddities Observation Practitioners, a paranormal study group based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Having an interest in ghosts since 2004, Merk has combined his knowledge of science with his passion for travel and technology to learn about paranormal activities around the world.
