Tell me your ghost story:
People always ask me which place is the most haunted in Ohio because I’ve been to a couple of thousand places all over Appalachia, researching them for my books. Usually, I mumble out a few places I personally found to have paranormal activity above and beyond others. Sometimes, I visit haunted places, and I get nothing. Others, I get some personal experience. Occasionally, I get something cool to share—an EVP or image on my camera. But honestly, it isn’t typical for anyone to walk into a place once and have spirits interact with them. It is being in the right place and at the right time. It is, perhaps, a spirit with something in common with you at any moment. So my most haunted place may not be your most haunted place. Or maybe, I don’t know about that special haunted place. And if so, tell me your ghost story!
