During the restoration of a 1926 house, I was seeing many hauntings, and that motivated me to write this book. At first, I thought I might have just been seeing and hearing things. After researching and bringing in a paranormal team, I found out that Al Capone had gotten the house for his mistress and their two daughters, Mary and Ann. I haven't found any proof that he ever bought the house, but all the evidence I have gotten has been through the old-timers that have lived in this neighborhood since childhood. The house is haunted by the mistress, Mary Ann Brown, a.k.a. Vera. I have encountered many hauntings in my life, and this house has given me many special gifts.
