James A. Willis has been walking on the weird side of history for over 30 years. He will tell spooky and strange tales about the Buckeye State’s most unusual sightings and citizens—ghosts, monsters, UFOs, murderous villains, courageous heroes, and much more! Willis has authored more than a dozen books, including Southern Ohio Legends & Lore, Central Ohio Legends & Lore, Ohio's Historic Haunts: Investigating the Paranormal in the Buckeye State, The Big Book of Ohio Ghost Stories, and Weird Ohio.
In James A. Willis’s newest release, Southern Ohio Legends & Lore, he explores the colorful characters and odd occurrences of Southern Ohio. Infamous bootlegger George Remus rose to power shortly after moving to Cincinnati. Roy Rogers, King of the Cowboys, was born and raised in southern Ohio. Some even say creatures not of this planet are drawn to the area, which has had numerous UFO sightings. In the same region, an unassuming university professor got away with murder, an eccentric built his version of a European castle using nearby river rocks, and a headless motorcycle ghost roams a rural roadway.
