I’ve always loved to write ever since I was in high school. I had an English teacher who taught about many famous people, mainly poets. I began to love writing poetry and did not realize that it was then that I became interested in this art form. I have written quite a few poems, which I have not published yet. But I was particularly interested in this project, The Haunted Book, because of what my daughter did in elementary school. She wrote an essay in fourth grade and received a high score (5) on it. It was so interesting to me that I said I would develop it into a children’s scary storybook. She wrote her essay in 2007, which was copyrighted. I rewrote the story, changing the names and some of the details for added enjoyment and content.
