Author S.E. Schlosser has been telling stories since she was a child, when games of "let's pretend" quickly built themselves into full-length stories. A graduate of the Institute of Children's Literature and Rutgers University, she also created and maintains the website AmericanFolklore.net, where she shares a wealth of stories from all 50 states, some dating back to the origins of America.
Artist Paul Hoffman trained in painting and printmaking, with his first extensive illustration work on assignment in Egypt, drawing ancient wall reliefs for the University of Chicago. His work graces books of many genres - children's titles, textbooks, short story collections, natural history volumes, and numerous cookbooks. For Spooky Southwest, he employed a scratchboard technique and an active imagination.
Amazon review of Spooky New England:—
***** A great read!, September 23, 2003
Reviewer: A reader from Chicago, IL
The ghost stories in this collection are spooky indeed! This book is a fast read, with great illustrations and stories that will keep you coming back again and again. My favorite stories are The Telltale Seaweed from Cape Cod, The Loup Garou from Rhode Island and At the Sign of the Sir Charles which has a trick ending!
Some of the stories are scary, some eerie, and some of them made me laugh. This book would be great to take camping -- the stories are perfect for reading around a campfire.
Hope we see more from this author.
