About the Author:

Kathryn Tucker Windham grew up in Thomasville, Alabama. She graduated from Huntingdon College in 1939, married Amasa Benjamin Windham in 1946, and had three children before being widowed in 1956. A newspaper reporter by profession, her career spanned four decades, beginning in the shadow of the Great Depression and continuing through the Civil Rights Movement, which she observed at ground level in her adopted home town of Selma. In the 1970s, she left journalism and worked as a coordinator for a federally funded agency for programs for the elderly. She continued to write, take photographs, and tell stories. The storytelling was an outgrowth of her 1969 book, 13 Alabama Ghosts and Jeffrey. More volumes of ghost stories, folklore, recipes, and essays followed; she has now published more than twenty books. Her reputation as a storyteller led to thirty-three appearances over an eighteen-month period on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, which introduced her to an even larger audience. She has written, produced, and acted in a one-woman play, My Name Is Julia, about pioneering social reformer Julia Tutwiler, has narrated several television documentaries, and is a regular interviewee for national and international journalists visiting Alabama in search of the Old or the New South. It is a testament to the good humor, keen intelligence, and life-long curiosity of one of the region’s best known public citizens that she can guide visitors unerringly to either mythical place.

Review:

"Kathryn Windham is a perfectly working ‘Time Machine.’ All you have to do is get inside one of her magical stories and you can ride back through lost decades of memory to those things so wonderfully ordinary that they define us all ... Whether it be a visit with a member of her own family or a ‘ghost story’ of the strange and inexplicable, we are caught in the clear reality of her memory and land in past times and places where we still meet ourselves today ... A genius of quiet reflection." ―Donald Davis, nationally known storyteller
"Jeffrey's Favorite 13 Ghost Stories from Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and Mississippi' is a collection of Windham's (and famed ghost Jeffrey's) favorite stories... The author was also careful to avoid tales of gore and fright. As a result, her ghost stories have been the most popular with school children and get told time and again as the leaves on the trees fall, days get shorter and Halloween approaches." ―The Florence Times-Daily
