Selected Writings

Tim is the author of two books on the haunted history of Washington, DC; Capitol Hill Haunts and Ghosts of Georgetown. The Washington Post selected Capitol Hill Haunts as one of the “Best Books about Washington” and the Hill Rag had this to say about Ghosts of Georgetown:

Krepp is well-versed in local history as well as the politics, trade and commerce, and social milieu of the eras he’s discussing, and is a great storyteller who, with a confident grasp of the facts and judiciously inserted asides, can bring to life both the haunters and the haunted.
