About the Author
Scott A. Johnson was born and raised in the swampland coastal town of Lake Jackson, Texas, which is rife with folklore and ghost stories that greatly influenced him as a child. While most children were content to watch cartoons on Saturday mornings, Scott watched Chiller Theater with his brother, reveling in the performances of Vincent Price, Bela Lugosi and Borris Karloff.
In junior high school, he discovered a deep love for the written word when he was introduced to Edgar Allan Poe's The Cask of Amontillado. He excelled in his English classes all through high school, though he did not begin writing fiction until he reached college.
Scott attended Texas State University-San Marcos then Southwest Texas State University and received his Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication-Advertising. He decided he loved the school and took a full-time position, working as a Media Technician for the Department of English. It was at this time that he was exposed to many great authors, both faculty and visiting.
Scotts short stories have been published in several magazines, including The Corpse Magazine, Alien Skin Magazine and All Hallows. He also writes a column, "Cold Spots," for the Horror Channel Web site.
Scott lives in San Marcos with his wife, Tabatha, and his two daughters, Anna and Zoe. He continues to work in the Department of English at Texas State University-San Marcos.

However, most of us aren't dealing with this familiar scenario while living in a haunted house. We don't have to figure out how to protect our children from specters as we struggle to pay our bills. Johnson artfully crafts a tale about restless, malevolent spirits seeking revenge for past wrongs, while taking us on a journey of self-discovery that reminds us of the importance of family and friends as we face our greatest struggles. This book will keep you up reading into the wee hours of the morning and make you appreciate your loved ones just a little more.
Without a doubt "An American Haunting" is the most poorly written book I have ever read. It is also a fraud when described as a novel. The book is full of blank pages and half pages. It is indeed, and blessedly I might add, a very short story. The only book I have ever seen with this much white space is a blank journal. As for Scott A. Johnson, I hope he doesn't have his heart set on a career as an author. He stinks. My only question is what does this book have to do with the movie by the same name or with the Bell Witch? I have seen reviews that connect it with both. I bought this book from Amazon.com at a considerable discount and I still want my money back. I usually donate my books to my local library, but I'm embarrassed to let anyone know I read this piece of trash. I would never buy another book published by Harbor House. Amazon forces a star rating for it's reviews, but this book deserves none.
A Texas family moves into a "fixer-upper" and finds out there is more that needs fixing than just dry rot.
The characters came alive and so did the ghosts but I have to warn you--do not read this before bed.
