Amy Gorder loves to share her fondness for spooky stories intertwined with gold rush history. She was born and raised in the Central Valley of California where ghosts of 1849 loom large. She lives in Elk Grove, California, along with her husband, Chris, and together they have four children and ten grandchildren. As a mother, grandmother, and former elementary school teacher, she has learned that nothing grabs a child’s attention faster than a spooky ghost adventure. And if history is learned along the way, all the better. Ghosts of Autumn is her first children’s book.
