Alan Brown teaches English at the University of West Alabama in Livingston, Alabama. Alan has written primarily about southern ghost lore, a passion that has taken him to haunted places throughout the entire Deep South, as well as parts of the Midwest and the Southwest. Alan’s wife, Marilyn, accompanies him on these trips and occasionally serves as his “ghost magnet.” Her encounters with the spirit world have been incorporated in a number of Alan’s books.
