"Ms. Cotter's evocative writing deliciously transported me...A wonderfully engaging book which also sheds light on the complex impulses that make the paranormal so irresistible. Ghosts speak to us in so many ways. The author is a master listener."

author of Chicago Haunts - Ursula Bielski
�This is exactly the kind of book that, as a young woman, fueled what eventually became in me a full-time career in professional ghost hunting. Ms. Cotter�s evocative writing deliciously transported me to my earliest days of searching, when I first found respite�as she does�in our most unusual, shared profession. With each word, I left my busy adult life and career, with all its responsibilities and certainty, and was a girl again, searching for answers within and without, finding solace in the

I really enjoyed this book! Though there are creepy moments, the story is really the memoir of a young ghost hunter - which to me is way more interesting than some run-of-the-mill ghost story. I'd recommend it to anyone with an adventurous side and/or an interest in the paranormal.
