William’s book delves into international stories both well known and unknown. He shares well-known stories, such as Ghosts of the Eiffel Tower, Auschwitz, Ghosts of Gallipoli, and The Moors Murders, and ventures into the ghostly contiguity running rampant in seemingly ordinary moments.
In A Haunting Place, readers will be taken to iconic locations such as The Criterion Hotel, The Hydro Majestic, Melbourne’s Princess Theatre, and The Gap. They will also journey into breathtaking locales like old mills, windswept Quarantine Stations, abandoned mental hospitals, derelict pubs, lonely roads, and silent houses.
Stirring and often frightening, the book will chill believers in the paranormal and those interested in exploring the unexplained.
Williams is a season, award-winning journalist who has spent more than 30 years working in magazines and newspapers, specialising in features, travel, and entertainment reporting.
