The Haunting of Pripyat: Chernobyl's Ghost Legacy


Pripyat, once a thriving city in Northern Ukraine is now considered a ghost town. On April 27, 1986 when the Chernobyl nuclear disaster occurred, the town was evacuated. Since then, it has sat as it has for 32 years in a strange kind of stasis that appears to attract ghosts.

Stalker Between the Worlds: Spring Turns to Summer Presence


*Warning: Photographs and information in this ongoing series might be upsetting to some readers. Discretion advised.*

LINK TO SERIES START

This is an ongoing series chronicling several years' worth of encounters with bizarre, horrific, and taunting interplay between one innocent citizen and a stalker that defies description (at least in our known world).

This was an exceptionally well-documented series of events that may at times be too graphic or horrifying for some readers, but it is our hope that by sharing this experience, someone out there might recognize a set of circumstances that are similar.

We have advice to be given to anyone encountering what I am at a lack of words to accurately describe, so henceforth refer to it as…the stalker between the worlds.

Ancient Giant's Shoulder Bone!


These bones found in a cave in a remote Northwestern US area were interesting finds. The long bone was neatly broken open, no gnaw marsk, the marrow scooped out with a stick or a bone shard with scoop marks remaining.

There are some pretty inventive ways to get your scare on. Let's look at some places with insane challenges.

Spooky Ozarks


The Ozark Mountains are some of the most beautiful locations in America, but they are also much like the Appalachian Chain - subject to the comings and goings of people for hundreds of years, leaving often times urban legends and abandoned places. Let's see some of the spookier side of the gorgeous Ozarks -

Ghost of a Chance! (A SEEK Team Investigation) is Launched!




I'm pleased to announce my new book Ghost of a Chance (A SEEK Team Investigation) is now up for sale by NewLink Publishing.  You can also find it at online stores.

It is about to come up in ebook form and Amazon, B&N and other sources. You can buy it today on the Mystic Publishers site  - LINK

This first in a paranormal romance series. In Ghost of a Chance (A SEEK Team Investigation), psychic Isabeau “Beau” Fraser is thrilled when her
billionaire client hires her and her friends to investigate the unexplained. But, she soon realizes it isn’t just ghosts doing the haunting, Marco Petrov and an unresolved history lurked in the shadows. While investigating a dusty mansion, an abandoned prison, a lonely lighthouse, and a ramshackle woodland home, her team gathers evidence of the afterlife as well as evidence of a longing that
never died.

I have really enjoyed writing this series, as I was able to use my real-life knowledge of paranormal subjects and actual incidents and interactions to give the reader a very realistic knowledge of the subject.

I am so pleased this book is out and I hope to hear back from readers to find out how anxious they are for the second installment, "Tall, Dark and Hairy! (A SEEK Team Investigation).

As I live in a state that has a LOT of UFO sightings and I myself have seen many unexplained flying objects in the sky, I thought I'd share some tips on doing a summertime UFO watch.

Don Monroe Case Files: Bigfoot Braiding Obsession?


From the files of one of my favorite researchers, Don Monroe, another interesting find to discuss - Bigfoots' obsession with braiding.

Spooklights

Devil's Promenade

Some people call them earth lights, others spooklights, and ghost lanterns. Whatever they are called, they have baffled people for hundreds of years when wandering the woods or back roads and finding floating lights not attached to any explainable human creation. The history on some of these lights goes back to being incorporated in Native American legends.

Haunted Lighthouses and Haunted Beaches


Haunted Lighthouses

Lighthouses are lonely beacons, isolated, sometimes in rugged locations, associated with shipwrecks and isolated keepers, so they seem a natural romantic feature in ghost stories. But, is there a very real reason so many lighthouses are haunted?

The logistics and Feng Shui of a lighthouse seem to make it an ideal candidate to amplify anything that happened there, even become a sort of recording device. You have constantly moving water on rocks, a building usually made of stone, circular in shape with a great power source at the top, often times, metal railing circling within, a keeper who trudged up and down the stairs in daily duties repeatedly, and a round shape that holds energy within, trapping it. Then, you add to that tragedy, loneliness, and no medical help so people often died there. 

I guess the question becomes; why wouldn't lighthouses be haunted? 

Let's have a look at some famously haunted lighthouses -

It Was a Dark and Storm Night: What to do on a Storm Night


There is something about summertime storms that makes you start thinking about fall and Halloween. Nothing like a dark and stormy night to give you the atmosphere and mood to stoke the fires of mystery. Even if your power isn't out, just turn out the lights and screens in the house and let the lightning illuminate the creepiest corners -

Weirdest Things To Fall From the Sky



I remember in high school when SkyLab was falling in 1979. Everyone was talking about it, wearing t-shirts about it, and even anxious about where it would land. It began a curious interest in what else has rained from the sky that was bizarre or extremely rare, other than the usual meteorite. Let's take a look -

Five of the Most Haunted Roads in America


There is nothing like a trek in the summertime through green overgrowth on a narrow country road, twisting and turning without knowing what is up around the next bend, but it's even more spooky when you know the road has a reputation for unexplained mysteries, ghosts, spooklights, and weird creature sightings.

I'm going to share my top 5 favorite haunted roads in America.

Voices of the Dead: Paranormal Thriller!


I'm excited to announce the plans for a grindhouse movie like no other - "Voices of the Dead." 

Outdoor Ghosts: Outdoor Hauntings

Gettysburg on a hot dry evening 

We hear a lot about ghosts within buildings, held to the sentimentality of the structure, remaining in the site in which they died. What we don’t hear quite as often are outdoor ghosts.

Blog Entry Saturday: Chesapeake Recipes


It's summertime and I can't help but dig out some old family recipes from the Chesapeake. We had a lovely summer home in Newpoint, VA when I was growing up. It inspired clamming, catching crabs, gathering oysters, growing a garden, and making some amazing meals.

Seismic Psychic Fault Lines: Where Our World and Theirs Converge



It's interesting to note that some ancient sites, mound locations, and places referred to as "portal" regions have clusters of odd activity, whether it's missing people, strange lights, presence of cryptid creatures, hauntings, strange disembodied voices, hikers missing time/getting lost, UFO sightings and more. 

What is happening in these locations that causes so much phenomena? Is it a cluster of contents that are necessary for phenomena or does it simply attract phenomena? Let's look at some real-life locations -

Where Do I Go To Get Scared in Arizona?


Most of the creepiest places are isolated, as well. This definitely adds to the mood factor. This list is by no means the final list, as I keep discovering more places that draw me back over and over.

Severe Storms and UFOs: The Interesting Correlations



I witnessed something extraordinary on some stormchaser video of an F5 tornado that a research friend was going through frame by frame. It so confused the both of us, that we had to wonder - was some kind of portal opened?

The Olsen Twins: From Adorable to Wiccans



Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, the beloved "tykes" on the popular late 80s/early 90s sitcom "Full House," are all grown up now and into many fashion enterprises, as well as Wiccan accessories. They are producing items such as a cauldron, ritual candles, an amulet, crystals, cigarette case, sage sticks, and athame (knife). 

I'm pleased to see celebs making Wiccan items more mainstream and available in shops that maybe aren't so rare and obscure.  Pagan practices are rich in ceremony and amulets, idolatry, and symbols. It's something that often sneaks over into mainstream in the form of erbs, stones, and symbols. 

We've seen Hollywood go Scientology and Kabbalah, now Pagan. It's an ever-interesting trek into spiritual for the wealthy and successful who have the influence to affect other practitioners.


Alien Crash Survivors? Dropa Stones Mystery

Western Canada's Chilling Legends and the Valley of Headless Men



There is an enormous and remote wilderness area Nahanni National Park in the Northwest Territory of Canada that would make for some amazing hiking and exploring, only it carries a rather dark reputation - as a place where headless bodies show up!  

Road Trip: Chasing Horror and Adventure on the Road!


It's the season for road trips and since I am a master of road trip planning, I' thought I'd share a twist. The spook factor.  I've come up with some divine creepy itineraries I will share -
