“A Few Favorite Haunts”
Almost every locale across the country has great haunted tales. Ghosts inhabit houses and hotels up and down the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake. Cape May, New Jersey has been famous for its numerous haunted inns and B&B’s for decades. Even the Gulf Coast of Florida has more than its share of spirits. That’s why I chose these quaint shore towns to set my Haunted Shores Mysteries.

But I realize our home area has more than its share of famous haunts, including a location of a mob execution, a gazebo a murdered bootlegger’s wife still frequents and a famous building built on the graveyard of children – where some of the departed young ones still roam. This presentation will feature a few of the haunting locations of southwest Ohio and the intriguing stories behind the restless spirits. The program will also reveal some conclusions about how spirits interact with the living, drawn from my research on ghosts. And  of course, there will be several more photos of famous ghosts to ponder. Definitely a program to remember!
