My name is Marc Hoover. Since 2015, I have written a weekly column for the Clermont Sun (under opinons) about the most obscure true crime and paranormal stories. I take great pride in seeking out and researching these interesting stories so I can share them with you. I have also written several books. However, one is specifically about the origins of monsters. This book is titled titled: Just Bite Me: A Guide to Zombies, Vampires, Werewolves, and Other Walking Nightmares and is available on Amazon.com in either paperback or Kindle format. 

Please be sure to read my columns, visit me on Twitter, like my Facebook page or just contact me to say hello.  I look forward to hearing from you! Also be sure to follow my bi-weekly podcast that follows my weekly columns. Stay tuned for more details!
