Natalie Zett wrote a book where the main character is not a person, but a tragedy that few have heard of: The Eastland Disaster of 1915. But what happens when you’re innocently investigating your family’s history, and the supernatural intervenes? That happened without my seeking or wanting this, and I file that under the “unintended consequences” category. Some things I learned from my book writing adventures—when you awaken the dead, expect the unexpected.
Natalie Zett is a writer, actor, photographer, and musician and has worked as a freelance journalist for magazines and papers since her late teens. Her favorite writing job was working for an award-winning community newspaper in Saint Paul, “The Park Bugle”. Natalie also taught others how to write for community newspapers at The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis, MN. And, during the last few years, she became a family historian. Natalie is a proud graduate of Ursuline College, Pepper Pike, OH where she majored in business administration. She also graduated from Luther Seminary, Saint Paul, MN, where she received an M.A. in Systematic Theology. Natalie is drawn to misplaced and forgotten stories because they're more compelling than the world would let us believe.
