Amberrose Hammond has always been interested in the strange and unusual. As a little kid, she read and watched anything that had to do with ghosts and her obsession eventually led her to start exploring the weird world of paranormal investigation. In 2007 Amberrose created the website “Michigan’s Otherside” (www.michigansotherside.com) to help contribute to the exploration of Michigan’s strange and unusual history. She also traveled extensively from 2006-2009 visiting haunted locations around the United States while working with the “Ghostly Talk” radio program.
Amberrose is also an avid local history enthusiast and enjoys getting others “psyched up” about Michigan’s cool past. A graduate of Grand Valley State, she loves looking into the history behind folklore, ghost stories, legendary monsters, bizarre crimes and is an avid cemetery enthusiast.
She published her first book in 2009 called, “Ghosts & Legends of Michigan’s West Coast,” and lectures widely. Her newest book, “Wicked Ottawa County, Michigan” features strange and shocking crimes from the mid 1800′s to the early 1930′s, and was featured in “Michigan History” Magazine as a “book to read!.”
