Ghosts and Hauntings with Sylvia Shults on Thorne & Cross: Haunted Nights LIVE!
Sylvia Shults is the author of 44 Years in Darkness, Fractured Spirits: Hauntings at the Peoria State Hospital, and other books of true ghost stories. She has spent the past twenty years working in a library, slowly smuggling words out in her pockets day by day to build a book of her own. She sits in dark, spooky, haunted places so you don't have to. She lives a short, ten-minute motorcycle ride away from the haunted asylum that features in so many of her books. She considers it the highest privilege to share the incredible, compassionate history of the Peoria State Hospital.
After battling an intense, lifelong fear of the dark, Sylvia decided to become a ghost hunter. (What WAS she thinking?) As a paranormal investigator, she has made many media appearances, including a tiny part in the Ghost Hunters episode "Prescription for Fear", about the Peoria State Hospital. She is also the writer, director, producer, and host of the true ghost story podcast Lights Out, available on YouTube, iTunes, iHeart Radio, Spotify, and anywhere else great podcasts are found.
Tonight Sylvia is here to talk about her book, The Spirits of Christmas: The Dark Side of the Holidays.

Andrea Carter discusses her Inishowen Mysteries & The Well of Ice on the Corner
Author and host Matt Coyle of Crime Corner welcome author Andrea Carter to the studio.
Andrea Carter grew up in Laois and studied law at Trinity College Dublin, before moving to the Inishowen peninsula in Co. Donegal where she ran the most northerly solicitors’ practice in the country.

Her books are published by Little, Brown in the UK, Goldmann Verlag in Germany, Oceanview in the US and will shortly be adapted for television. Filming is due to begin in Donegal next summer. The Sunday Times has said ‘Carter excels in re-creating the cloistered, gossipy confines of a small Irish village…the Inishowen community where everybody knows everybody else’s business is a fine stand-in for the mannered drawing room society of a Christie mystery.’ Learn more at https://andreacarterbooks.com/

M.E. Browning, writer of wrongs, chats about her new book SHADOW RIDGE with Pam
Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes M.E. (Micki) Browning to the studio. This second visit with Micki is all about her new brand and new book SHADOW RIDGE.
Micki Browning writes the Jo Wyatt Mysteries and the Agatha-nominated and award-winning Mer Cavallo Mysteries (as Micki Browning). An FBI National Academy graduate, Micki worked in municipal law enforcement for more than two decades and retired as a captain. Micki also writes short stories and nonfiction. Her work has appeared in dive magazines, anthologies, mystery magazines, and textbooks. She is a professional divemaster and owns a vast array of scuba equipment she uses for "research".
About SHADOW RIDGE: Echo Valley, Colorado, is a place where the natural beauty of a stunning river valley meets a budding hipster urbanity. But when an internet stalker is revealed to be a cold-blooded killer in real life the peaceful community is rocked to its core.
It should have been an open-and-shut case: the suicide of Tye Horton, the designer of a cutting-edge video game. But Detective Jo Wyatt is immediately suspicious of Quinn Kirkwood, who reported the death. When Quinn reveals an internet stalker is terrorizing her, Jo is skeptical. Doubts aside, she delves into the claim and uncovers a link that ties Quinn to a small group of beta-testers who had worked with Horton. When a second member of the group dies in a car accident, Jo’s investigation leads her to the father of a young man who had killed himself a year earlier. But there’s more to this case than a suicide, and as Jo unearths the layers, a more sinister pattern begins to emerge–one driven by desperation, shame, and a single-minded drive for revenge. As Jo closes in, she edges ever closer to the shattering truth–and a deadly showdown that will put her to the ultimate test.
