About Fiona Broome

Fiona is fascinated by unexplained phenomena in everyday life, especially ghostly encounters. She’s jokingly described herself as a “blip analyst.” If a topic is quirky and fun, she’s interested in it.

More seriously, she explains that she’s always seeking that sense of wonder we experience when we witness something awesome and astonishing.

Fiona BroomeIn the 1990s, at GeoCities.com, she was one of the first researchers to share ghost hunting insights and tips, online.

In 1999, she started this website as HollowHill.com. (The name referenced both Sleepy Hollow and Ireland’s legendary “hollow hills.”)

It quickly became one of the largest and most popular websites for ghost enthusiasts.

Starting in 2008, she offered the first (and most complete) free ghost hunting course for aspiring ghost hunters. It’s still online, and regularly updated to include new insights.

In 2009, Fiona’s guidebook, Is Your House Haunted?, became an instant classic for anyone living in (or investigating) a building that might be haunted. She’s revising that book now.

Fiona’s other ghost-related websites have included Ghosts101.com (a book, and sometimes a question and answer site) and Hallowfields.com (for her free ghost hunting courses).

Fiona has written or contributed to over 20 books about ghosts and paranormal topics. She’s also worked as a location scout for TV producers, and a consultant for some shows.

In addition to her research, Fiona is expanding this website and updating her free ghost hunting course. Throughout 2020, she’s revising her older books and writing new ones, as well.
