Ghost Stories with Sylvia - Volume Two
We welcome back Sylvia Shults to the show this week for more ghost stories and to talk about her new book 44 Years in Darkness: A True Story of Madness, Tragedy, and Shattered Love. She has been writing for years, and recently made the switch from fiction to nonfiction. Following a lifetime spent in the pursuit of the weird and the strange, she now shares that passion with her readers. Her fiction (both horror and romance) is still floating around out there, but these days she concentrates on living a childhood dream -- telling true ghost stories. Her book, Fractured Spirits: Hauntings at the Peoria State Hospital, was featured on an episode of the SyFy Channel's hit show Ghost Hunters. It is the first book to examine the famously haunted asylum from both a historical and a supernatural perspective, and it was nominated for an award from the Illinois State Historical Society.
