Overview

An ominous air hangs about Capitol Hill’s historic Croke-Patterson Mansion. Rumors of spirits and strange events have cast a shadow across its elegant Gilded Age façade. The lonely halls are haunted with stories of a doctor’s wife who committed suicide and the ghostly figure of a young woman who appears to visitors. Tenants of the building have also claimed to hear the cries of children, and dark specters in the basement prevent even the heartiest souls from staying for too long. Join authors Ann Alexander Leggett and Jordan Alexander Leggett as they try to unravel the mysteries that have plagued this Denver mansion for over a century.

Meet the Author

Author, public relations specialist, designer and artist--these are just a few of the many hats worn by Ann Alexander Leggett. Her love of history and ghosts, however, has found its way into several of her projects and seems to have become a major part of her life. It can be a crazy day when switching gears from meeting about a major concrete construction project to lurking around haunted houses and cemeteries, but she balances it all--happily. Ghostly things that go bump in the night fascinate her, and she has apparently passed this attraction to the spirit world along to her daughter, who is coauthor of this latest book. Ann attended the University of Colorado, graduating with a degree in journalism, and has lived in the Boulder area ever since. She is the coauthor of two other historically-based ghost books: Haunted Boulder and Haunted Boulder 2.
Born and raised in Boulder, Colorado, Jordan Alexander Leggett now spends most of her time in Seattle amidst a tumultuous relationship with the University of Washington. She is pursuing a major in English literature with a minor in classics, and she is currently plotting a contingency plan that doesn't involve living with her parents until she is gainfully employed and in her mid-thirties. Odd part-time customer service jobs are her specialty, and when she isn t working at a gym making protein shakes, she reads and re-reads such classics as Bleak House and Winnie the Pooh. Following in her mother's footsteps, she also devotes free time to other forms of art, as well as various blood sports such as rugby. She plans on spending quite some time in Seattle, her home away from home, but Colorado will always have a piece of her heart.
