At a casual glance, Hamilton is a typical midwestern town, but a closer look reveals strange and inexplicable events of possibly supernatural origin. A mischievous poltergeist plays its tricks in a High Street tavern. More than a century ago, a young boy narrowly escaped death in a fall that left him gravely ill, and some say his cries still echo in his family home. A vaporous woman appears on the stairs of a Hamilton home once owned by one of the county’s richest men. Could this be his daughter who died from suicide? Hamilton native and contributor to the Dayton Lane Ghost Walk Shi O’Neill mines the history of the town’s many spectral occurrences.

Shi O’Neill is a retired teacher and an avid reader who loves to immerse herself in a good story. She lives in a close-knit historic neighborhood in a small Ohio town that serves as her inspiration. Her first work, a novel, was based on her experiences in this historic district, where she has lived for a quarter of a century. She serves on multiple historic boards, which augments her love of local history. She has raised two beautiful children and has lived with her loving husband for the last twenty-five years in a nineteenth-century, three-story mansion. Although Shi has been writing for many years just for the love of it, she is now publishing her work.
