Seattle Is Haunted, Claims Local Author of Newest Ghost Stories Collection
As Halloween approaches we caught up with Emily Hill, Seattle-area author and asked her about her latest book, a collection of ghost stories, ‘The Ghost Chaser’s Daughter’ which is available at Amazon.com in both paperback and eBook format.
Since four of her recently published ghost stories take place in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle we asked the Seattle-area author about the underpinnings of her latest book, ‘The Ghost Chaser’s Daughter’.
“Oh Yes! Seattle is most definitely haunted. One major hot zone is Greenwood, around 85th and Greenwood Avenue,” the author claimed as she described the ghostly happenings that prompted her writing one of the short stories contained in her new book, ‘Seattle Houses ~ On Seattle Graves’.
“I lived in Greenwood for thirteen years, from 1986 to 1999. It occurred to me one day this past year in a ‘connect the dots’ moment just how many ghost stories I had heard about my Greenwood neighborhood while living there, and just how many of those supernatural occurrences happened at – or next door to – my house.”
A.V. Harrison Publishing asked the author to describe some of the Seattle hauntings that she has included in her newly published trade paperback, ‘The Ghost Chaser’s Daughter’.
“Over a week or so, last year, I began jotting down stories I had heard during the thirteen years I lived in Seattle’s Greenwood neighborhood. For instance we had a neighbor (one of Seattle’s radio personalities)
“Considering most of the houses currently situated on the forty-acre stretch of land running southwest from 85th and Greenwood were built on the former grounds of the Woodland Cemetery of 1907, its no wonder that there is supernatural activity.”
A.V. Harrison Publishing representatives checked out the author’s story and invite the reader to decide for themselves this Halloween season. Is Greenwood Haunted? It would seem so, if news accounts, and historic record receive serious consideration.
Emily Hill offered this invitation as she prepared for a reading from her new book, “If anyone has had unusual, or even supernatural experiences in Greenwood, I would invite you to contact me.” Visit info@avharrison-
