Bell Witch Unveiled Show from Bell Witch book
Debbie Dunn aka DJ Lyons is a professional storyteller and published author. In addition to a book-signing, she performs a One-Woman Show called The Bell Witch Unveiled based on her book entitled "The Bell Witch Unveiled At Last! The True Story Of A Poltergeist" written under her pen name of DJ Lyons.

This One-Woman Show attempts to clear the name of Cate Williams Batts (often spelled Kate). This was the woman wrongly accused of being the poltergeist who haunted the family of John and Lucy Bell from 1817 to 1821. Debbie tells this story in first-person perspective, portraying the part of Cate Batts herself.

This carefully researched and investigated performance piece (told from Cate Batts' perspective) for middle school, high school, college, and adult audiences, reveals at last the true identify and motives of the Bell Witch of Adams, Tennessee.

Please note: This story is most appropriate for ages 11 to 111.
