Debra Glass. Tour Guide. Author.

DEBRA GLASS is the author of more than thirty five books, including the Skeletons in the Closet ghost story collections. Since childhood she has been fascinated by things that go bump in the night. While writing True Ghost Stories of the Shoals Area, she realized many of the tales were set in her hometown of Florence, Alabama, and decided to start a ghost walk tour. Since its beginnings in 2002, the Haunted History of the Shoals Ghost Walk Tour has become a perennial favorite during the Halloween season.

Debra lives in Alabama with her family, two smart alec ghosts (one of whom you might encounter on the tour!), and a glaring of diabolical black cats.

Want to schedule a private tour of 25 or more, or book a field trip for your school, church, or civic group?
