My name is Marc Hoover. Since September 2015, I have written a weekly column for the Clermont Sun (under opinions) 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. In 2019, my column received a Hooper Award for third place from the Ohio News Media Association (ONMA) for best original column. 

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! I have also started a podcast titled "Catch my Killer." In this podcast, I interview real people who have cold cases that need closure. If you have a cold case or are familiar with a particular unsolved homicide that needs to be solved, feel free to contact me for a potential future podcast episode. I also accept Paypal donations for Catch my Killer productions costs.
