About Me

100 Steps Cemetery

My name is James A. Willis and I have spent the last 35 years chasing after ghosts, monsters, and all things strange and spooky. I’ve been lucky enough to have been given the opportunity to write about my travels and exploits in over a dozen books.

The whole “published author” bit just sort of fell into my lap. Truth be told, I was always obsessed with visiting weird places and then digging into the history behind said places. Never dawned on me that there were others out there who shared my obsession and wanted to hear about my experiences. Until that fateful day in 2003 when Weird NJ’s own Mark Moran and Mark Sceurman came calling and the rest, as they say, is weird history.

Since so much of my work doesn’t make it into my books, I decided to create this site. That way, you can all share a piece of my strange & spooky world without leaving the comfort (and safety) of your home.

So welcome to my strange & spooky world. Have a look around as I’m sure there’s something here that will tickle your fancy. And above all, stay weird!

  1. I have some phenomenal ghost photos that I took in Gettysburg, Ft Dade, Florida, and a few others that aren’t quite as good in the Upper Sandusky, Ohio area. I have been investigating haunted locations off and on since 1996.
    I am very cautious and try to document proof during investigations. I love connecting with people of like mind.
