On this spooky and historically fascinating episode of After Hours AM/America’s Most Haunted Radio — with Joel Sturgis and Eric Olsen — we speak with author, storyteller, podcaster, paranormal investigator, and queen of the wildly haunted Peoria State Hospital, Sylvia Shults.

Sylvia has spent the last nineteen years working at a public library, slowly smuggling out enough words in her pockets, week after week, to build books of her own, and now she is the author of several books of paranormal fiction, and more recently, nonfiction, including 44 Years in Darkness, Fractured Spirits: Hauntings at the Peoria State Hospital, and Ghosts of the Illinois River. Fractured Spirits was featured on an episode of the SyFy Channel’s hit show Ghost Hunters. It is the first book to examine the famously haunted Peoria State Hospital from both a historical and a supernatural perspective, and it was nominated for an award from the Illinois State Historical Society.
