Haunted Asylums, Prisons, and Sanatoriums is a travel guidebook and firsthand account of ghost hunting investigations conducted at some of America’s most haunted locations. All of the locations are accessible to the public, and the book will be of interest to paranormal enthusiasts, ghost hunters, and those interested in the history of these famous locations.
Sam and I attended ghost hunts and investigated ten locations such as Waverly Hills, Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, Mansfield Reformatory, West Virginia Penitentiary, and Missouri State Penitentiary.
The book contains 57 photos, a brief history of the locations, highlights from historical tours and ghost tours, and details of our own personal experiences. Readers will also enjoy an introduction to ghost hunting and the equipment used.
We began the project as skeptics, and discuss some of our preconceived notions about hauntings, and how our beliefs changed as the project developed and we got further into our travels.

Hi. We are playing a game where we have to read a book by an author from each state. We just read and loved your book, and were wondering, where are you from?

Hi Jamie, I have just finished HAP&S, and I could not put it down. I finished it in two nights. I too have been on hunts at TALA in Weston WV and St. Albans in Virginia. We had an “all nighter” at St. Albans and we conversed via flashlights with Lawrence downstairs in the shower and just outside where they treated alcoholics for 45 minutes and it was absolutely mind blowing. My daughter and her boyfriend took me and it is something I will never forget. I can’t wait to read more from you. I like that you and Sam have such a great working relationship. I agree you should never do these by yourself. Please keep the books coming they are great.
