Amberrose Hammond has been interested in the strange and unusual since she was little, reading and watching any and everything that had to do with ghosts, mysteries, legends and all things out of the ordinary. She has actively researched legends, ghost stories, haunted places, old true crime and other unusual topics in Michigan since 2000. She earned a B.A. in English from Grand Valley State University in 2005 and in 2006, her pursuits into the paranormal led her to develop Michigan’s Otherside, a website exploring the mysterious worlds of The Great Lakes State, past and present.
She is a local history enthusiast and is a member of the Dusty Dozen’s, a private group of local history aficionados and geeks in West Michigan and has lectured extensively on her research. She is the author of Ghosts & Legends of Michigan’s West Coast, Wicked Ottawa County and Wicked Grand Rapids with more in the works. She spends her days surrounded by old, broken books that she fixes for a library somewhere along Michigan’s Gold Coast. Her love of old cemeteries is probably a little excessive but no one seems to mind.
