Author Thomas Cook appeared on Studio 10 TV this week to tell readers more about his book. Check out the video here: http://www.studio10.tv/day/monday/segment.aspx/312132/Orlandos_Historic_Haunts
Thomas Cook is a photographer and historian who specializes in the history of central Florida. He has called Orlando home since 1984 and has worked for the University of Central Florida’s History Department, the Orange County Historical Society, and the Orlando Public Library. He has also lectured and written numerous magazine articles on central Florida history. His love of history and his interest in the paranormal compelled him to create Orlando’s first professional ghost tours in 2000.
