Where Spirits Dwell by Karina Machado


Where Spirits Dwell by Karina Machado

WHERE SPIRITS DWELL unearths the creaking, spine-chilling moments when ghosts appear in suburbia. Alongside infamous Australian haunted homes, like Junee s Monte Cristo Homestead and Annandale s haunted Abbey, WHERE SPIRITS DWELL also takes readers inside other haunted dwellings including schools, pubs and even shopping centres. As she did in her bestselling book SPIRIT SISTERS, described as 'addictive reading' by the Daily Telegraph and 'fascinating and thought-provoking' by the Sun Herald, Karina Machado spins such a web of wonder that often the interviewees lives prove just as fascinating as the spooky experiences they re sharing with her. Along with these real-life experiences, Machado also investigates the haunted house in history, literature and popular culture in this creepy, intriguing book.



About the Author

Karina Machado was born in Uruguay and moved to Sydney with her family as a toddler, where she grew up hearing stories of her mother's psychic gift, igniting a life-long curiosity about all matters supernatural. She began her career in journalism as an editorial assistant at TIME magazine in 1994, and is now a senior editor at WHO magazine, where she's always pitching spooky stories. She's also obsessed with the Tudors of England, and has been known to dress up as Anne Boleyn, whose ghost she's sadly never seen.
