About the Author:
As a trained photo-journalist, Jill contributes to a number of pamphlets and magazines within Derbyshire, including publications produced by the Alfreton history society and local church. She has written close to twenty local history books over the last few years. She has a small, but growing collection of old photographs of the area, with contacts to others, which she builds upon in her spare time, alongside her involvement with the Romantic Novels Association to which she is a member.
‘As always with Amberley books, the production values are good and both volumes are well illustrated. In addition to learning about Derbyshire’s paranormal aspects, the reader will come away knowing more about its history more generally. Given the University of Derby’s increasingly prominent role in parapsychological researchthrough its Psychology of Paranormal Phenomena Research Group, it seems appropriate to celebrate the county’s spooky heritage, and these two complementary books do that well.’ www.spr.ac.uk/publication/paranormal-derbyshire-and-haunted-pubs-inns-and-hotels-derbyshire, June 2011
