Meet the Author

Troy Taylor is an occultist, supernatural historian and the author of 86 books on ghosts, hauntings, history, crime and the unexplained in America. He is also the founder of the American Ghost Society and the owner of the Illinois and American Hauntings Tour companies.

Taylor shares a birthday with one of his favorite authors, F. Scott Fitzgerald, but instead of living in New York and Paris like Fitzgerald, Taylor grew up in Illinois. Raised on the prairies of the state, he developed an interest in "things that go bump in the night" at an early age and as a young man, developing ghost tours and writing about haunts in Chicago and Central Illinois.

He began his first book in 1989, which delved into the history and hauntings of Decatur, Illinois, and in 1994, it spawned the Haunted Decatur Tour -- and eventually led to the founding of his Illinois Hauntings Tours (with current tours in Alton, Chicago, Decatur, Lebanon & Jacksonville) and the American Hauntings Tours, which travel all over the country in search of haunted places.

In 1996, Taylor organized a group of ghost enthusiasts into an investigation team and the American Ghost Society was launched, gained over 600 members in the years that followed. The organization continues today as one of America’s largest and most honored research groups.

In 1997, Taylor launched the Haunted America Conference, regarded as "America's Original Ghost Conference" in Decatur, Illinois. After a number of years in Alton, Illinois, the conference has returned to its original site at the Lincoln Theater in Decatur. The Haunted America Conference remains the most imitated conference in the country and in 2012, held the 16th annual events in Illinois.


In addition to the tour companies and Haunted America Conference, Taylor is also the founder of Whitechapel Press, a publishing company for books about the supernatural that he started in 1993, and Dark Haven Entertainment.

Along with writing about the unusual and hosting tours, Taylor is also a public speaker on the subject of ghosts and hauntings. has appeared in scores of newspaper and magazine articles about the subject and in hundreds of radio and television broadcasts about the supernatural. Troy has appeared in documentary productions for TLC, The History Channel, A & E, Discovery Channel, PBS, and many more! Troy currently resides in Illinois.

    Waterlilly

    She is driven here in the cage that is beaten by her massive hooves. She neighs and huffs heavily at the man. She tries sticking her head through the bars and unlocks it. The chain clicks and she kicks the door off jumping out. She has no clue on were she is besides very far away from her family. She nickers and sees a snow white stallion with a weird looking hat on. She is at a horse racing track. She trots slowly over to the stallion and neighs softly half frightened. He turns around to her and looks down. "Hey! No foals allowed by the tracks! You should be in your stable!" He neighs loud enough for a female trainer with curly blonde hair and blue jeans on with a green and black shirt on to walk over. "Oh hello little one, were did you come from?" She says as she pets Waterlillys neck gently. Waterlilly pulls back a little but nuzzles her hand, softly. She makes her best sad blue eyes and points her muzzles south. The female looks south and her eyes widen. "Oh baby girl, your not from here. Your a wild filly." She smiles and walks over to the truck the man left. She motions for Waterlilly to get in once again to take her home. Waterlilly lays her ears back but follows. She gets in and looks at the girl. "Dont worry baby girl. Ima take you back home." She says and smiles.
