About the Author:

John Douglas was born in Cumberland, Maryland in 1947. He has lived most of his life in Morgan County, West Virginia. His mystery novels—Shawnee Alley Fire, Blind Spring Rambler and Haunts—are set in this region and were shaped by his experience. Douglas was longtime editor of The Morgan Messenger in Berkeley Springs, W. Va., and The Hancock News in Hancock, Md. During his newspaper career, he won many journalism awards, often for editorial writing and court coverage. He is also author of George Washington & Us, an illustrated history of the First President’s connections with the Berkeley Springs vicinity, and Joltin’ Jim: Jim McCoy’s Life in Country Music (2007), the illustrated biography of the music entrepreneur who discovered Patsy Cline. His work has appeared in Southern Cultures, Blues Access, Goldenseal, Wonderful West Virginia, The Washington Post, the Killing Waters books about the West Virginia Flood of 1985, and elsewhere.
