Billy Polard is a musician, artist and author from the suburbs of Philadelphia.  He has written, recorded and released 3 full length albums under the moniker “The Ghost In You”, which are available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and anywhere else music can be downloaded. After being dropped by the publisher and left with no other alternative, Polard chose to publish “The Undead Adventures of Bone Boy and Ghost Girl” himself in 2019. It was his first book, with all original characters and illustrations. In 2020, Polard wrote and illustrated a sequel, “Bone Boy and Ghost Girl meet Dead Dog”. Billy loves Halloween, horror movies and toys. In his free time he rides his scooter to parks, thrift stores, and cemeteries.
