Introducing: Goldie Browning

A book set in a haunted hotel that once used to be a cancer hospital...there must be a story behind this story. Let's get to know more about Goldie Browning and how she developed an interest in the paranormal. 

"Goldie Browning’s twisted imagination and fascination with the paranormal began in early childhood with her grandmother’s ghost stories and her brother’s retelling of classic fairy tales, such as Snow White and the Seven Little Frankensteins and Cinderacula. Almost every vacation she takes includes a stay at a haunted hotel or castle, as well as visits to famous cemeteries or catacombs. 

Her first and favorite job was as a secretary at a military mortuary in West Germany, followed by more mundane employment which included being a newspaper reporter, a real estate agent, a substitute school teacher, and a legal secretary. She finally settled down to a long career as a courtroom deputy clerk for two federal judges before retiring and getting to do what she wants to do when she grows up—be a writer—and now editor of Storyteller Publishing.
        
Not long after finishing Night Journey she was stricken with cardiomyopathy.  She received an implanted cardio-defibrillator and was evaluated for a heart transplant, which ironically paralleled the plot of Night Journey. Luckily, time and medication worked their miracle and she made a full recovery. Her experience, as well as someone near and dear to her in need of an organ transplant, has transformed Goldie into an advocate for Organ Donation and Living Wills.
              
The best thing she ever did was marry her high school sweetheart, Alan a long, long time ago. She’s living happily ever after with husband and family, which includes a menagerie of fur people, on a wooded hill in rural North Texas." 

You can stay up to date with Goldie on her personal website, Storyteller Publishing's website, and the Crescent Hotel's website.
