Meet the Author

L.B. Taylor Jr. is a native Virginian. He was born in Lynchburg and has a BS degree in journalism from Florida State University. He wrote about America's space programs for sixteen years--for NASA and aerospace contractors--before moving to Williamsburg, Virginia, in 1974 to work as public affairs director for BASF Corporation. He retired in 1993. Taylor is the author of more than three hundred national magazine articles and forty-five nonfiction books. His research for the book Haunted Houses, published by Simon and Schuster in 1983, stimulated his interest in area psychic phenomena and led to the publication of twenty-three books on Virginia ghosts. In 2007, he was presented the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Virginia Writers' Club.
