What a satisfying experience, during my years in Ogden, Utah, to have participated in the Tales from Beyond project; a collection of short stories compiled by D. Hattingh.
I was one of several local authors tasked with researching facts about O Town’s historic 25th Street and surrounding areas, interviewing shop owners (who go about their daily business while coexisting with their own personal ghosts), in order to “write the stories as whispered to me” by spirits on 2-Bit Street!
Over a 3-year period (2012-2014) we released and promoted the acclaimed Tales from 2-Bit Street and Beyond, Parts I and II, and Tales from the Wasatch and Beyond. Through dramatic readings, ghost tours, festivals, and plays, we made Ogden’s colorful history come to life, and I count myself lucky to have been a part of it!
My 3 stories; Carolina Blue, 205 ½ 25th Street, and Alison, featured in the original (now classic) editions of the Tales from Beyond anthologies, have been re-mastered and are included in the new, *disquieting* collection of Seven Ghostly Spins—a brush with the supernatural.
