In the first part of her interview, author Pamela Kinney shared insight and an excerpt from her nonfiction book, Haunted Richmond, Virginia.

In this second section, Kinney shares interesting facts, personal experiences and more opinions about Virginia's eerie reputation.

Here is the conclusion of the interview:Richmond Books Examiner: Your latest book is Haunted Virginia: Legends, Myths and True Tales.

If Richmond is taken out of the equation, what area of Virginia is the most haunted? Pamela Kinney: Natural Bridge has a lot of legends and actual hauntings in its attractions.

This book was mainly about myths and legends (even though some of the stories do have actual hauntings), so Ferry Plantation in Virginia Beach is not mentioned.

But it has 11 ghosts they even know the names of! This is a cool museum too.

You can find out more about this fabulous place at the Ferry Plantation website.RBE: Did you discover any interesting facts about Richmond during your research? Kinney: Well, General A.

P.

Hill, a Civil War general, died during that time and was buried first at the Friend's cemetery, then after the war ended was moved to Hollywood.

He was buried both times standing up! Now in my new book I found out he was moved again, this time he is buried standing up beneath the statue of him at the corner of Hermitage and Laburnum!Also in Haunted Virginia, something I already knew, there is a house and its walkway in Petersburg made of entirely Civil War gravestones! Poplar Cemetery is the only Civil War cemetery using modern day markers because of the stones sold to a builder in the 1930s.

There are many more interesting facts that I learned, including history, but they would be too much to put here, and then no one will get the books to read about them! LOLRBE: Have you had any personal experiences with ghosts in Richmond or elsewhere in Virginia? Kinney: I do paranormal investigations with a couple of groups and had experiences.

And doing both books, I had things of a paranormal nature happen to me.

I have written these in both books, or used the photos I took in both books.

There's a photo of an ever changing bright blue orb at the Bunnyman Bridge in Fairfax in Haunted Virginia: Legends, Myths and True Tales.

There's also a photo of the weird stuff that happened to one of the buildings in Shockoe Bottom in Haunted Richmond, Virginia.RBE: What do you read when you're in the mood for a scary story? Kinney: Actually read a horror novel.

Nonfiction ghost books and stories don't scare me, unless the happenings were frightening for the people in the book involved.

As a fiction writer who has horror stories published, you're trying to give the reader heart palpitations of fear.RBE: Do you have any upcoming events?Kinney:Book signings in the near future:Minerva Books and Cafe--July 10, 2009--8PM to 10PM--Book Signing-233 Bartow Alley.
