Meet the Author

Brent Monahan has spent his life fascinated with and passionate about questioning the world - and arriving at unique, thoughtful, insightful and, quite often, spear-tip pointedly amusing answers that find their expression in his many novels. Whether he is offering a rational explanation to an historical haunting, as in The Bell Witch: An American Haunting, or delving into the psyches and machinations of such icons of financial and political power as J.P. Morgan in The Jekyl Island Club, Mr. Monahan does so with an unparalleled depth of research and smart, witty writing that has engaged decades of readers and garnered him considerable critical recognition from both reviewers and his peers.

Mr. Monahan has authored thirteen novels, two of which have been made into movies - including An American Haunting, starring Donald Sutherland and Sissy Spacek. He has taught writing at Rutgers University and Westminster Choir College of Rider University, even though his terminal degree was in musical arts from Indiana University, Bloomington. He lives in Yardley, Pennsylvania.
