Henry H. Hamilton is a hobby farmer in Otisfield, Maine, a retired International Humanitarian Aid and Development Worker and former Superintendant of the Maine Wildlife Park, Gray, Maine. He spent 23 years working in Eastern and Western Europe, West Africa, Central and South Asia. He was a story teller on Alabama Public Radio, WLRH-FM, Huntsville, Alabama, 1989-1995. In 2004 the Friends of the Maine Wildlife Park asked him to tell scary stories at a Halloween event. Because he could find no story that he liked he wrote several of his own. He found writing spooky stories for children fun. The result is this book.
