Author Kerrie Logan Hollihan channels her “inner sixth grade girl who read Compton’s encyclopedia for fun” to write for teens and kids. Young people, she says, should be challenged to understand history as it actually happened. “As I research and write, I think about how to explain the ‘whys’ of situations as well as the ‘whats.'”
Her books have been honored by VOYA, Smithsonian magazine, Bankstreet College of Education, the National Science Teachers Association, the Chicago Public Library, and the Junior Library Guild.
Hollihan is a member of the nonfiction author consortium iNK Think Tank, Inc. and its interactive partner, Authors on Call – www.inkthinktank.com. She especially enjoys meeting young readers during school visits both live and on the web via Authors on Call. She blogs with other authors to offer content-based, kid-friendly activities at Hands-on-Books.
Hollihan also reaches out to inquisitive older adults in community centers and other groups with book programs that speak to their experiences.
Creepy & True Ghosts Unveiled! (2020)
Do you believe in ghosts? Whether you’re a believer in things that go bump in the night or a firmly science-minded skeptic, there is compelling evidence to suggest that the veil between the living and the dead may be thinner than we think.
Ghosts Unveiled! investigates spectral appearances, unsolved mysteries, and eerie hauntings around the world: the Vanishing Hitchhiker, the child-nabbing La Llorona, demon cats and dogs, haunted schools, and even wraiths in bathrooms! Examining eyewitness accounts from both contemporary interviews and historical records as well as physical signs of paranormal activity, this meticulously researched, well-balanced, and spine-tingling book will leave you wondering what is truly beyond the veil.
The Creepy and True series explores strange phenomena, fun facts, and out of the ordinary discoveries. Also available: Mummies Exposed!
