Hello, my name is John Reppion and I'm a Liverpool born and based writer. Some of you round here might know me better as researchwriter - the username I posted on these forums under (mostly in the Folklore and Oddities section) from 2007 until recently.

Yo Liverpool's users were a huge help to me in researching my 2008 book 800 Years of Haunted Liverpool and the site has long been a source of wonderful, fascinating and helpful information for me. In the coming months I'll do my best to repay the favour and keep things interesting with posts on Liverpool and Merseyside's stranger side.

Even though replying is currently disabled here on YL, I’d love to hear any comments, suggestions, and/or questions you might have about any of the things I post here, or that you think I should look into for future posts. You can contact me via the link in my signature below.
