Robert Chatham (1981-2197) is a half-dinosaur, half-cyborg hybrid invented to entertain children at birthday parties. His first novella / short story collection, "Noisome Beasts," was nominated for thirty-eight awards, including a plastic Little League Champ Trophy and the Pulitzer. His upcoming novel, "The Dead Rise," is an entirely different work in an entirely depressing genre.

Robert is an atheist and young adult writer, and hopes you won't hold either of those facts against him.

Robert Chatham liked an answer from Erica Waters:
Erica Waters
Ghost Wood Song is partially inspired by the traditional Appalachian ballad "Shady Grove," which has many modern interpretations. My favorite version of it is by Doc Watson. My main character is named after the song, and the song plays a big role in See Erica’s answer.
