Shawn and Lynne Mitchell began home haunting in Pensacola, Florida, in 2006. What began as a small Halloween party evolved over the years into a full walk-through cemetery and DIY haunted-house experience for friends and neighbors. The Mitchells started self-publishing the How to Haunt Your House book series in 2009 and built a solid following of international home haunters through the books and their website, They have also appeared on several Halloween TV specials (The Great Halloween Fright Fight on ABC & Halloween Tricked Out on HGTV), as well as other media outlets. The Mitchell family along with their three terror-ific kids have returned with The Best of How to Haunt Your House.
