Amanda Woomer is a huge travel buff, foodie, and lover of all things strange and unusual. A couple of years ago, she decided to combine her three interests into one and that's how Spook-Eats was born. Spook-Eats is a blog dedicated to travel, food, and a little bit of the paranormal thrown in just for fun. I'll have to admit that I wish I had thought of this first, because I too, love travel, delicious food and (of course), the paranormal. I'm both a little jealous and envious of her. Amanda has been visiting haunted locations ever since 2004, when she first visited Gettysburg, PA. Since then she has traveled to dozens of haunted places in the United States from the Stanley Hotel in Colorado to the home of Robert the Doll in Key West. She frequently travels around the country, visiting bars, cafes, restaurants, and hotels, searching for delicious food and spirits of all kinds. She has been to the Lemp Mansion, the Farnsworth House, the Lizzie Borden bed and breakfast, and even some locales you probably haven’t heard of yet! Never one to sit still for long, Amanda has authored 4 books, made guest appearances on several paranormal podcasts and radio shows and has also given presentations as a couple of paranormal conventions. She is constantly updating her website by writing about her adventures and is currently expecting her first child, which is due on August 22, 2020! In addition to being a writer, she is a former international English teacher, and historian. She was born and raised in Buffalo, NY, and has a degree in anthropology. She won her first award for her writing when she was only 12 years old. With publications in anthologies and magazines all over the world, she is currently a featured writer for the award-winning Haunted Magazine. On this podcast, Amanda and I will discuss how she came up with the idea for Spook-Eats, her books and she'll tell us all about some of her most memorable locations. She will also give us the best and worst dishes that she's eaten so far in her Spook-Eats journey. To learn more, you'll have to Turn On, Tune In & Find Out!
