The most haunted real estate in America is explored in this volume of chilling tales. In Amityville, New York, an ordinary family is terrified by poltergeists in one of America's most controversial haunted houses. Abraham Lincoln, whose wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, was deeply interested in the paranormal, is said to haunt the White House in Washington, DC. In Galveston, Texas, a fiercely independent yet forlorn woman haunts Ashton Villa, a mysterious structure that survived a massive hurricane. Lalaurie Mansion in New Orleans, once owned by a sadistic southern mistress, is home to some tragic spirits who perished within. Discover these and dozens more remarkable accounts in Haunted Houses.

She married Bob French, the son of a pioneer family, and they lived in different parts of the area before settling in Williams Lake in 1970. Along with raising five sons, Diana continued to teach, and later worked as a reporter then editor for the Williams Lake Tribune. She still writes a weekly column for that paper. She is the author of The Road Runs West: A Century Along the Bella Coola/Chilcotin Road (Harbour Publishing) and co-authored, with Rick Blacklaws, Ranchland: British Columbia's Cattle Country (Harbour Publishing).
