The Peoria State Hospital in Bartonville, Illinois, served the mentally ill and mentally handicapped of the area from 1902 to 1973. During the first half of the twentieth century, the asylum was the world’s premiere institution for the treatment of mental illness. Home to an unparalleled school of nursing, the asylum gave help to thousands of suffering patients. The superintendent, Dr. George A. Zeller, was a pioneer in the field of mental health care. The patients at the Peoria State Hospital received such compassionate treatment that it seems that after death, many of them remained at the asylum.
Fractured Spirits: Hauntings at the Peoria State Hospital is a result of years of research. Shults spoke to dozens of people who have had paranormal experiences at the abandoned asylum. She has also done many inves- tigations of her own. The book, and Shults’ research, was featured on an episode of Ghost Hunters (“Prescription for Fear”, which aired January 30, 2013).
Shults lives in Illinois with her husband. She works at the Fondulac District Library, mostly in order to feed her book addiction. She also serves as the Publicity Director for Dark Continents Publishing. In addition to nonfiction, she also writes romance and horror. She is the first to admit that there is a fine line between the two.

#TChat Radio is all new on Tuesday, May 28, 2013, at 7:30 pm ET (4:30 pm PT). There are reasons why some online communities grow and thrive while others fade away into obscurity. One of the primary reasons involves like-minded individuals aggregating and communicating around relevant topics, as well as having the ability to come and go as they please, and welcome other like-minded individuals as they please (think #TChat). They are built on open networks, authenticity, transparency and trust. Creating these inclusive environs in the enterprise has proven more difficult, but there are best practices to follow. Enterprise community management is more than installing a social collaboration platform and waiting for the magic to happen. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman welcome this week's guests, Maria Ogneva, Director of Product Marketing, Chatter Communities, Salesforce (Formerly Yammer), and Jeff Willinger, Director of Collaboration, Social Computing and Intranets, Rightpoint. This will be another great "community management" show, so we hope to see you here! **SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: We’re thrilled to announce our first “world of work” partnership — with Achievers.
