About Your Guide
Stories of the gruesome, unsolved and occult seem to chase me. In college, I majored in history, with a focus on 19th-century American medicine and disease. Now I write crime and suspense novels. In my research over the years, I uncovered stories about murder, paranormal sightings, witchcraft, cults and spirits. Much of it can be explained away with science but other things remain a mystery.
I will admit that exploring the dark side of life has become a bit of a side passion for me. Hopefully you find it just as interesting. Check out my series of haunted walks in three cities so far: New York City, Los Angeles and Seattle.
