MYSTERY AND HISTORY
David J. Pitkin has sought the answers to mysteries throughout his life. At first a non-believer in ghosts, in 1968 he experienced footsteps on the floor of a barn loft that wasn’t there. Later, he discovered the loft, before being taken down, had been the site of a 1940 suicide.
When he moved to Saratoga Springs, he found an abundance of such stories relating to old historic houses and hotels. He also found many modern structures that had ghosts. He first wrote of these in his best-seller Saratoga County Ghosts in 1998, and again in Haunted Saratoga County in 2005. In 2002 he also published Ghosts of the Northeast, detailing over 200 eerie tales from New England, New York State and Canada.
In September 2006, Pitkin published New York State Ghosts, Vol. 1. Then, in July 2007, he published his first novel, The Highest Mountain: Death & Life in the Adirondacks, a metaphysical election year epic. In September 2008, he published his second NY State Ghosts volume.
A successful self-publisher, Pitkin is currently at work on New England Ghosts, hoping to publish it before Halloween 2010. Visit him at www.afterworld.info
