Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Hi, readers,

Haunted Marietta combines my love of the paranormal and my love of history. It is a tribute to my beloved town, as well. I have lived in Marietta since 1994, and it's a fabulous place for history and ghosts, and lots of other things as well! I hope you enjoy visiting my town and getting to know some of its former citizens, dead and alive, as well. If you get as much enjoyment from reading it as my husband and I did visiting these places and taking pictures, I will have done my job.

About the Author

Rhetta Akamatsu is a Certified Paranormal Investigator and a lover of history. She is also the author of the Ghost to Coast series, a book about blues women entitled T'ain't Nobody's Business If I Do, and her latest book, The Irish Slaves. She lives in Marietta, GA, with her husband and her cat.

More About the Author

I am a certified paranormal investigator and the author of some rather diverse books. My latest is Sex Sells; Women in Photography and Film. Before that was The Irish Slaves, a non-fiction look at an almost forgotten part of history. The next most recent is Haunted Marietta, part of The History Press's Haunted America series. I've also authored the Ghost to Coast series, which consists of two books at the moment, Ghost to Cost and Ghost to Coast Tours and Haunted Places. I also love the blues and write about them online. I wrote a book about blues women because I don't think they get enough attention, T'ain't Nobody's Business If I Do. The only thing that binds my books together is my interest in history and people,living or dead!

Aside from writing, I am married, with two grown kids, a son and a daughter, and 5 grandchildren ranging in age from 13 to 8 months. My husband and I live in Marietta, GA with our cat, Puppy (yes, our cat is named Puppy.)

I've lived in Cobb county for most of the past 19 years so I was pretty excited to learn about Rhetta Akamatu's recently published book of Marietta ghost stories. She has done an excellent job of rounding up stories and history and weaving them together into a book anyone who is familiar with the area or just interested in ghosts will enjoy. Some of the haunted places she writes about I've known about while others I didn't. She tells of spirits being experienced at various locations on the Square, at the Kennesaw Battlefield and in several of the cemeteries as well as many other locations. There is plenty of local history in the book as well as theories on different kinds of haunting activity. What I enjoyed as much as the book's subject was Ms. Akamatsu's writing style. She has writing and editing experience and it shows in the easy flowing and orderly manner in which she writes. She also has training as a paranormal investigator so she actually knows what she is writing about. Pick this book up and learn about some of the hauntings in Marietta as well as about some of the rich history of this charming Southern town.
