Since the 1990s, this website has been a project of Fiona Broome. That’s me. I’m fascinated by ghosts and haunted places, and the anomalies that make us think we’re encountering ghosts.
Oh, I believe in ghosts. I also believe that extraordinary things are going on at “haunted” places… things we can’t explain.
I’m simply not sure that all of those unexplained things are actually ghosts.
This website documents my research. Frankly, a lot of my work has simply raised new questions rather than solving mysteries that have intrigued ghost hunters for centuries.
The purpose of this website is to encourage and inform others so they, too, can become paranormal researchers. I believe that the best way to prove (or disprove) ghosts is for lots of people to get involved in this work. One person’s discoveries may help the next person, and so on, until we have enough evidence — and repeatable results — to say with confidence whether something is a ghost… or isn’t.
Sometimes, my articles can’t include enough details. Often, these topics are complex. So, I’ve written and contributed to about a dozen books about ghosts and haunted places. Here are a few of my most popular books:
Ghost Hunting in Haunted Cemeteries – A How-To Guide has been my most popular book. In it, I explain how to find haunted cemeteries that you might drive past every day. I also share tips for finding the most eerie and active parts of the cemetery — including what’s just outside the walls — and how to spot the most haunted graves. This book became an instant classic, and it’s ideal for all ghost hunters, from beginners to professionals.
101 Ghost Hunting Questions – Answered started as a slightly flippant series of short essays, giving down-to-earth answers to questions that too often wander into speculation and pure hype.
This book answers the most-asked questions about ghost hunting… and explains why some ghost-hunting questions can’t be answered.
Available in Kindle, a regular printed edition, & a large-print edition.
Ghosts-What They Are and What They Aren’t is for intermediate ghost hunters. It explains the major kinds of phenomena most often confused with ghosts. In this book, I provide details of what to look for, why it should matter, and what to do if you encounter something paranormal but not ghostly.
There’s a lot of very weird stuff out there.
Ley Lines for Ghost Hunters – An Introduction is strictly for experienced and professional ghost hunters.
In this illustrated guide, I explain the basics of how I’ve successfully used ley lines (energy lines) for more than 10 years, to identify and predict where the most actively haunted locations will be.
