GHOSTLY EVIDENCE is complete and in its final layout phase at Millbrook. On October 1, 2014, the final book will be available, and I think it's going to be sensational.
After four years of careful research, I had a lot of information I wanted to share, but not enough pages to share it. So I created a new website just for this book and the stories that didn't make it into the text.
If you want a sneak preview of what we had to cut from the final book, click HERE, then click on the GHOST STORIES button. And watch for additional stories from credible witnesses I have met and interviewed myself.
Then pick up a copy of GHOSTLY EVIDENCE this fall!
"Librarians, back me up on this one. When it comes to middle grade nonfiction about ghosts we have next to nothing to offer. So when I saw this book by the woman who brought us books on Sasquatch and aliens, I knew we were onto something good. With a great deal of fun research, Halls gives us the science behind “the hunt”. Ghost hunt, that is. The book takes a scientific approach and includes lots of interviews with firsthand accounts. It’s not just stories, though. There’s also lots of backmatter and even a listing of haunted places to visit. Now THERE’S a summer vacation trip worth recounting!"

Looking for an author visitor?
I'd love to go to your school. My calendar is filling up really quickly for the 2013/2014 school year, but if we hurry, we can still find a place for you.
My WONDERS OF WEIRD presentation is great for kids from kindergarten to grade 8. I'll do up to six presentations for elementary schools, up to three presentations at middle schools.
For more information about my presentations -- fees, expense requirements, ground transportation and hotel requests, click HERE.
If you'd like to know what other hosts think of my visits to there schools and festivals, click HERE.
If you'd like to see my current calendar -- keeping in mind, it changes almost daily -- click HERE.
Welcome to the WONDERS OF WEIRD!
I am a nonfiction children's writer and I love to write about things weird.My most popular books are:
Dinosaur Mummies (2003)
Albino Animals (2004)
Wild Dogs (2005)
Tales of the Cryptids (2006)
Mysteries of the Mummy Kids (2007)
Wild Horses (2008)
Dinosaur Parade (2008)
Saving the Baghad Zoo (2010)
In Search of Sasquatch (2011)
Alien Investigation (2012)
Girl Meets Boy (2012)
Hatchlings: Life Size Baby Dinosaurs (2012)
Tiger in Trouble (2012)
Courageous Canine (2013)
I am hard at work on other projects, including two books in a new series for Red Lemon Press called LIE DETECTORS -- one on dinosaurs and one on animals (coming this spring, 2014) and GHOST for Millbrook in October of 2014. I have two other series ideas in the works, so watch for more about those.
Most exciting of all, I'll soon be making ten video episodes of KELLY'S CURIOSITIES for MSN. I'll talk about ten weird but wonderful topics -- one in each three minute video. Part of the videos will be me talking, just like when I do school visits. Part of the videos will be animated -- picture a cartoon me! See why I'm so excited?
I'll be sure to add links to each video as they're released. But for now, enjoy the drawing of the cartoon me.
Kelly : )
