"Welcome to the spooky streets of Colorado’s Front Range! Stay alert! Ghosts lurk around every corner. Even the most unexpected places might be haunted by wandering phantoms. Did you know that in an old courthouse, a ghostly little boy loves to leave handprints— on the ceiling? Or that the old mining tunnels beneath many towns are haunted? Can you believe that two disembodied heads float through the Capitol building in Denver? Pulled right from history, these ghostly tales will change the way you see Colorado’s Front Range, and have you sleeping with the light on!"

Shelli Timmons writes for kids of all ages. After many years working with numbers, she realized she liked letters a whole lot more, so she stepped away from the world of finance and entered the realm of stories. She loves old houses and buildings, and is always open to sharing space with a ghost or two. She currently lives in Central Texas in a house much newer than she’d prefer, with an equal number of people and dogs. About the author of the adult Haunted America book from which the children’s Spooky America book was adapted: Cindy Brick has been interested in history since childhood. A nationally known speaker and teacher in the craft field (particularly the quilt world), she is also a certified personal property appraiser and a competition judge. Her writing has appeared in Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine, Encyclopedia Britannica, the Daily Camera and the Denver Post, as well as for the Quilt Heritage Foundation. She also writes extensively online and for her company, Brickworks. You can contact her via the Brickworks website at or via her blog at
