Marty Myers

Hello I am Marty Myers I have worked all my life trying many different jobs. I have been a cook at a dozen different restaurants, a restaurant manager at two different chains, an appliance delivery man, a floral delivery man, a janitor, a factory worker in a half dozen different companies, a farmhand, a tour guide and a contractor. So I have a wide range of experience to drawl my ideas and characters off of. I have always been an avid reader since a very early age. My favorite thing to do when I was young was to curl up with a good book and let it carry me off to a world of adventure and I still enjoy reading books to take just such a journey today just as much as I did back then. I especially enjoy works of science fiction and fantasy although I do occasionally read horror as well. For years I considered trying my hand at writing a book. After months of writing, I began the process of editing and then learning all the other steps needed to publish a book. Thank goodness it isn't as hard as it used to be. In addition to reading my other hobbies and interests include gaming, hiking, photography, fishing, gardening and finding out what goes bump in the night. That's right I have been interested in ghosts and the paranormal since I was a kid growing up on my grandfathers old Ohio farm. I spent my youth out in the countryside wandering around exploring. Hearing old family ghost stories around campfires. My mother is a fine storyteller who grew up near the Hornet Spook Light in Missouri and spent many nights watching the mysterious light winking up and down its dark country road. I heard tales of ghostly cars offering hitchhikers rides, phantom footsteps eternally circling old haunted graveyards and spectral ladies floating across old country roads only to be struck by cars late at night. These and many other stories kindled my interest in ghosts Nowadays I am out there trying to find out what is really going on. I was an independent investigator for several years running my own site called Lost and Found Ohio and then I was brought on with Central Ohio Ghost Squad as a paranormal investigator and case manager, later I transitioned to the United Paranormal Project which I am still a founding member of. Over the last several years I have also grown to love walking and photographing cemeteries for their historical significance as well as their beauty and tranquility. There is a lot of interesting symbolism and artistry carved into those tombstones and each cemetery has dozens of tales to tell us if you just slow down really look for them. Lastly, I love seeing and exploring places, finding old forgotten places and capturing some of their essence in photographs before they are torn down and gone forever. Historical places and those with folklore associated with them or a haunting or two are my favorite locations to look for as they combine three or four of my interest together. I love the character of many of the old architectural styles that are no longer being used.
