As a journalist I’ve covered trials for murders and corrupt politicians, uncovered environmental threats and fascinating personal stories, interviewed war heroes from World War I through Iraq, and written a very popular weekly column. And, for more than two decades I have authored books on the Civil War, local regional history, and after all that my life got really interesting.
I’ve gone on to something even more incredible, exploring my personal encounters with the paranormal. I’ve learned a lot about spiritual entities, that they can be interesting, and yes they even can be funny. My encounters with the paranormal came literally out of the blue, and were very difficult for me to accept. I have been a lifelong skeptic, and still retain my skeptical nature, but I now appreciate that there are many things in this world that traditional science cannot explain.
My work in the paranormal has led to national coverage on PBS and The Travel Channel, and appearances as a featured speaker at top paranormal conferences. To say my experiences are fascinating is an understatement. Using instrumental trans communication I’ve spoken with the spirit of a soldier who died at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania in 1863. I’ve had other experiences and conversations with spirits, mostly at Gettysburg – and of course I don’t even have to leave to home experience the paranormal in my spiritually active 1830s house.
My first book on this topic, “I Met a Ghost at Gettysburg: A Journalist’s Journey Into the Paranormal,” was so popular and well accepted, and opened so many new doors to me, that I have a follow-up volume, “I Met More Ghosts at Gettysburg: A Journalist’s Paranormal Journey Continues.” The reception these books have received, and the doors they have opened to me, have been nothing short of amazing to me. I currently am working on a third book on the paranormal.
My goal is to raise awareness of the evidence that is all around us of spirits and unexplained happenings, and urge the acceptance of parapsychology as a science. The paranormal, encounters we often describe as ghosts, should not be frightening. Instead they can be enlightening, fascinating and fun.
