Waynesville Engine House and Lockup
Livin’ on Third Street is not a memoir, but a collection of funny stories about a rambunctious, mischievous Midwest boy growing into a man. The stories highlight the escapades of the author's life, events that would make him what he is––if only he can survive them. Charlie Miller may have learned things the hard way but he passes on sage advice with good humor and unflinching honesty.

Chris Woodyard grew up in the Columbus area but has lived most of her adult life in the Dayton area. She is the author — and publisher — of several series of books on the ghosts and ghostlore of Ohio:
• “The Haunted Ohio” series: “Haunted Ohio,” volumes 1 through 5, as well as “Ghost Hunter’s Guide to Haunted Ohio” and “Spooky Ohio: 13 Traditional Tales” for younger readers and storytelling.
• “The Ghosts of the Past” series, including “The Face in the Window: Haunting Ohio Tales,” “The Headless Horror: More Haunting Ohio Tales” and the third volume, which expands coverage across the United States, “The Ghost Wore Black: Ghastly Tales from the Past.”
• “The Victorian Book of the Dead,” a macabre collection of the morbid and the mournful from the Victorian era.
• “A Spot of Bother: Four Macabre Tales,” not about ghostlore per se, but a collection of short stories that Woodyard calls “neo-Edwardian … think Downton Abbey meets Dexter.”
