ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Storyteller at Heart

Lost in the passage of time are stories that are begging to be told. Within the shadows are memories of life from generations past. Stories of joy, of sorrow, of incredible feats and agonizing defeats. Sometimes a historical building can provide that glimpse of those memories.

I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and love discovering the stories of people that I have never met. It gives me tremendous pleasure to bring those stories that were hiding in the shadows into the light.

WALKING AMONGST THE SHADOWS: HOUGHTON MANSION

May 22, 2018

Did you ever wonder what it is like to sleep in a haunted mansion? I did, and the experience altered my life's path.

This is the true story of my experiences within Houghton Mansion in North Adams, Massachusetts. Join me in this deeply personal journey - full of incredible highs and devastating lows.

The mansion seemed to be calling me back countless times. I thought that it needed my help - it turned out that I needed the help of the spirits within. I take a nostalgic look back at the many laughs, the unexplained phenomena, the heartbreak, and the impact the mansion and her spirits had on me.

What would you do if you came face to face with the unknown?
