Where do urban legends, conspiracy theories, and old wives’ tales originate, and are any of them true? Have you heard the one about Walt Disney's frozen body? Does Coca-Cola own Santa Claus? Do alligators live in NYC sewers? More than just a collection of folklore, PHANTOM HITCHHIKERS & OTHER URBAN LEGENDS is also a detective story, exploring the real events behind modern myths, proving that truth is often stranger than fiction. English writer and historian Albert Jack became a publishing phenomenon in 2004 when his first book Red Herrings and White Elephants, which explored the origins of well-known phrases in the English language, became a huge international best-seller, staying in the top ten of the UK Sunday Times best-seller list for sixteen months.
His follow up book Shaggy Dogs and Black Sheep was also a best seller and has sold over 150,000 copies since publication in October 2005. It became Penguin Book's Christmas best-seller - he has now published 12 books in the U.S.
Fascinated by discovering the truth behind the world's great stories, Jack has become an expert in explaining the unexplained. The success of his books has a lot to do with Albert's invention of what he calls the "ten minute read," enabling readers to open his books at any point and be fully entertained for ten minutes at a time before "going off to do something more productive with their time."
Currently hosting a series of Writer's Workshops in England and South Africa, Albert has plans for another ten hard backs that look set to continue his success for many years to come.

You've heard them on Haunted Nights LIVE! Tamara Thorne and Alistair Cross bring you the best in horror, hauntings and spooks! The tables are turned tonight when they become the interviewees on Authors on the Air. These two crazy kids have written another winning heart-stopper of a book and they have agreed to go under the lights in Pam Stack's studio. Here's a little bit about The Cliffhouse Haunting: Cliffhouse has not always been a place of rest and respite, though. Over the years it has served many vices, from rum-running to prostitution and although the cat houses have been replaced by a miniature golf course and carousel, Cliffhouse retains its dark history; darkest during the Roaring Twenties, when a serial killer called the Bodice Ripper terrorized the town, and a phantom, the Blue Lady, was said to walk when murder was imminent.
Death walks With her…
Now, there’s a new killer on the loose and the Blue Lady sightings have returned. The Bellamys are losing maids and guests are being tormented by disembodied whispers, wet phantom footprints and the blood-chilling shrieks of mad laughter that echo through the halls of Cliffhouse in the dead of night.
