Ghost Town essay on NPR

In 2009,we were looking at housing and thinking about taking advantage of the crashing real estate market.  Our search took us from gated communities that were never completed to houses that had once been occupied.  However, as exciting as the thought buying a home was, the feeling of trespassing on old lives still clung to our ankles.

It was this feeling that stuck with me and I wrote an essay about it.

Since I haven’t written an essay since school, really wasn’t too sure what to do with it so I queried some of the papers and magazines.  I also contacted the local NPR station and, much to my surprise, they asked me to come in and record it.  I had anticipated one of the on-air persons would read it, if it was even accepted.

Alas, it was left up to me.

Should you wish give it a listen, here is the link WGCU
