Overview
Florida's Big Bend region is sometimes known as the "Forgotten Coast," but the tales of its haunts are anything but forgotten. This small cluster of towns and cities has produced a body of ghost lore that rivals any stories produced in the state's better-known haunted cities. One of the towns in the Big Bend--Monticello--is known in paranormal circles as one of the most haunted places in the entire Southeast. Old City Cemetery in Tallahassee is the oldest public cemetery in the city and has a long list of chilling encounters. Join author Alan Brown as he recounts the history of one of Florida's most terrifying regions.

Author
Alan Brown was born in Alton, Illinois. After attending Millikin University, Southern Illinois University and the University of Illinois, he taught high school in Springfield, Illinois. In 1986, he began teaching English at the University of West Alabama. After living in the South for a year, Brown became interested in the folklore of the South and began collecting it on his own. "People talk in the Midwest, " Brown said, "but not like they do in the South. I guess this is why southerners are great storytellers." When he is not teaching freshman composition or American literature, Dr. Brown writes books on his favorite topic: ghost stories. Haunted Birmingham is his tenth collection of southern ghost tales. As much as he loves old stories that send shivers up the spine, Brown's first love is his wife, Marilyn, and his two daughters, Andrea and Vanessa.
