About this author

Nicholas McGirr lives in Myrtle Beach with his wife and two daughters. A graduate of Ashford University in both English and Journalism, Nicholas has a passion for subjects involving the afterlife and what lies beyond the grave. Whether Nicholas is writing articles and books about spirits, his fiction novels also take on the subject of the afterlife. His recent projects involve a case study of haunted locations along Myrtle Beach's Grand Strand and a concept series of spirit reincarnation into trees. You can find the first in this fiction series, The Life Tree, here on amazon, and look for other books in this series in the near future.

Dear Readers,

As of late, I have just received my degrees through Ashford University: BA in English, and a BA in Journalism. With these newfound writing skills I'm starting my own freelance business on top of continuing my fiction writing.

I'm only sending this on because I've received so many polls from you and could only fancy taking on one of your quotes.


Penelope Marzec Thanks for your friendship!
