Call in to speak with the host
Join Lisa Tarves, Metaphsycian, Board Certified Holisitic Health Pracitioner and Auhor of "Just Believe" and her guest, Sylvia Shults.
Sylvia Shults has been a paranormal investigator for several years. She began her career as a ghost hunter as a result of doing the research for her nonfiction book
Ghosts of the Illinois River (Quixote Press, 2010). Her fascination with ghosts dates back to her childhood, as she is an avid reader who was raised on Grimm’s Fairy Tales.
A few years ago, Shults was inspired to write a collection of people’s supernatural experiences at the Peo-ria State Hospital in Bartonville, Illinois. This project quickly swelled into
Fractured Spirits: Hauntings at the Peoria State Hospital. The book incorporates the history of the asylum as well as the many ghost stories that have arisen out of the asylum’s abandonment. In an effort to separate fact from fiction, Shults thoroughly explores the true history of the hospital.
The book, and Shults’ research, was featured on an episode of Ghost Hunters ("Prescription for Fear", which aired January 30, 2013).
It's good to talk.
