Book about USA's overlooked serial killer is published
A new book recently released I wrote focuses on one of our nation's first serial killers, Frederick William Hollman. The man, who went on to kill as many as six women in three states from 1895 to 1896, lived in Grand Haven, Michigan for five years after immigrating from Brandenburg, Germany to the U.S.A. in 1883. Some newspapers surmised Hollman may have been responsible for as many as 17 deaths. Hollman, overlooked by criminologists, was compared in newspapers at the time to Jack the Ripper and called "the second H. H. Holmes." Countless history buffs and researchers lent a hand from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Ford County, Illinois, to bring age-old newspaper articles on microfilm back to life. The book, published by Black Oak Media, Illinois, runs 268 pages in length, paperback format, retails for $18.95. You can order one online now from Barnes and Noble here. For best price found online, order here from the Book Depository via Amazon.
Talking about "Final Doom" on local TV programs
I appeared on the West Michigan TV program "Take Five & Company" July 31st talking about my book "Final Doom: The Frederick Hollman Story." WATCH that video here. I also appeared on the "live" morning show on FOX TV-17 Monday, August 6 (play the video above.) Also, watch the Hollman Halloween video broadcast on WWMT channel 3 on October 31, 2012.
My weekly column in the Grand Haven Tribune
I write a weekly column, which appears every Monday, in the Grand Haven Tribune titled "Strange Grand Haven." The column also appears online on the newspaper's website, on which you can read the latest columns online here. The column explores strange history, U.F.O. sightings, creatures of legend and paranormal activity in Ottawa County, Michigan. A new book, the Strange Grand Haven Anthology, will be published soon and available from Amazon. Check out the Strange Grand Haven web page for updates.
RECOMMENDED BOOKS FOR READERSMy chapter books for tweens and teens
I have written several chapter books over the years and the four I would recommend to readers 9-15 would be the titles pictured above. Each can be purchased online by clicking on the book title. Barth@heaven.org follows an inspirational communication via email between an angel in heaven and a boy who has only a short time left on earth. The second title is Esther's Channel, presented much like the works of C. S. Lewis, where creatures mirror humans and their emotions, a turtle named Esther must find forgiveness for others after her mother dies. The third title is Natalie's Ark, written by my wife and I. It tells the tale of a young girl lost in a flood, and how through faith, and the encouragement of animals that speak, finds her way back home. The fourth book I recommend is Dreamchaser, also written by my wife and I. It presents the tale of an urban youth who dreams of playing professional basketball, but discovers he is an all-star to those who love him most.
My picture books for children
I have written and illustrated several picture books over the years and the four I would recommend to readers 4-8 would be the titles pictured above. Each can be purchased online by clicking on the book title. Whispering Wally follows the inspirational tale of a large blue whale, and reveals the secret why he speaks in a whisper. The second title is Professor Horace, Cryptozoologist, which explores the unusual and amusing world of creatures of fable and legend. An elderly professor not only finds the creatures, but befriends them and promises to keep secret their existence. The third title is The Jumbo Shrimp of Dire Straits, written by my wife and I, illustrated by me, which tells the tale of a crusty sea captain who falls on hard times but does not give up on finding a place called Hope. The fourth book I recommend is Hope the Angelfish, which is a written collection of fables with biblical meaning. One illustration accompanies each of the 10 stories included.
