* Alert! Check with any sellers of used copies of "I Met a Ghost." There is an error in the ISBN listings, and you are likely to receive a used copy of "Working Poor" instead

My mind was spinning at this point. Here I was – someone who grew up not believing in ghosts, a veteran journalist used to questioning everything – apparently having a conversation with a captain who fought at Gettysburg more than 150 years ago. Was it really possible? Was this some gigantic, wildly ingenious incredible hoax, or was this conversation somehow real? And what was it that brought me – a once dyed-in-the-wool paranormal doubter – to this haunted bridge in search of ghosts? - Don Allison After years of experiences that he could not rationally explain -- experiences that many people encounter, and do shrug off or rationalize - award winning newspaper editor and columnist Don Allison decided to search for answers. Experiences that Don and his grandson experienced in Gettysburg in the spring of 2015 finally convinced Don to present this serious look at the paranormal.. This is what noted paranormal investigator and historian Mark Nesbitt, author of the "Ghosts of Gettysburg" series of books, has to say about "I Met a Ghost at Gettysburg": "A great read. Very entertaining ... I think you've created an "Everyman's" explanation of paranormal experiences. Most people ignore or rationalize away true paranormal events. Your book covers the many types of paranormal events AS paranormal events, and explains how you came (reluctantly, in some cases) to those conclusions."

About the Author:

Don Allison is a lifelong resident of Williams County, Ohio, where the historic home he shares with his wife, Diane, is located. A 1976 graduate of Stryker High School, he earned a bachelor of arts degree in journalism from the University of Toledo in 1980. As a high school student in the early 1970’s Don got his start in journalism as a sports writer and photographer with the weekly Advance Reporter newspaper, now known as the Village Reporter. He joined The Bryan Times as county editor in 1981, where he later served as editor and currently is senior editor. He has received numerous Associated Press and United Press International awards for his news, feature and column writing. Drawing on knowledge gained from a lifetime of studying the Civil War, Don has written extensively about that conflict. He and Diane are the founders of Faded Banner Publications, which publishes books on the Civil War and Northwest Ohio history. Don’s previous books include “Hell on Belle Isle: Diary of a Civil War POW” and “The Best of On My Mind: The Bryan Times Newspaper Columns of Don Allison.”
