Hailing from the land of catfish, moonshine, and grits, Pat Fitzhugh is best known for his books about the history, legends, and lore of the American South. From the eerie swamps of Louisiana to the ghostly homes and misty mountains of Virginia, Fitzhugh's writing embodies the passions, fears, and tragedies of a region shrouded in mystery and rich in folklore. His reverence for the past and scholarly interest in the supernatural are strikingly evident in his style of writing, which not only tingles the spine, but exudes a profound sense of history and place. “I take yarns of history, legends, and tragedy, and I weave them into stories that not only entertain, but also shed light on the region's people and past. Tales of ghosts, haints, and spooks are often scary, but adding layers of history and culture creates a sense of realism that makes them even scarier.” Fitzhugh is currently working on the thirteenth anniversary edition of his popular title, The Bell Witch: The Full Account (Armand Press), which has become a staple of modern, history-based ghost research. When not writing books or telling stories, Pat Fitzhugh enjoys photography, eating Southern cuisine, playing loud guitars, and fishing at Turkey Creek.
