Darcy Oordt grew up in a ghostly desert: not one known haunted house in her hometown of Blue Earth, Minnesota. It wasn’t until she moved to Tennessee that she experienced her first ghost while working as a guide for a “ghost” tour. Her first book Finding Success After Failure: Inspirational Stories of Famous People Who Persevered and Won Out, tells about the early failures of famous people and how they overcame them. In her free time, Darcy enjoys swimming with sharks, flipping houses, and exploring museums in exotic locations…if by “enjoy” you mean watching it on television. When she is not writing, you will usually find her making jewelry or crafts, fussing with one of her freshwater aquariums, or spending time with her pets. She is also the author of Haunted Philadelphia.
