Founder and owner Andrea Janes is the author of BOROUGHS OF THE DEAD: New York City Ghost Stories, the book that inspired this company. The book is a work of fiction, but in the course of her research, she discovered the city was a wealth of ghostly, gory stories, and decided she wanted to share them with the world. Andrea is also the author of the YA novel GLAMOUR, and several short horror stories.
Originally from the Boston area, Adrian Sexton always had a passion for American history and a fascination with the macabre; she grew up a town full of ominous Victorian homes and spent her youth wandering around old colonial graveyards and being the unofficial tour guide for the school field trips to Salem, MA.
