It seems bizarre that I have over 40 years in ghost research, but there it is. Eerie places and weird phenomena have been a lifelong fascination.
During those years, I’ve also written over a million words for magazines, books, and websites, talking about ghost hunting, haunted places, and unexplained phenomena.
You may have heard me on radio shows (such as “George Noory’s Coast-to-Coast”) and many, many podcasts.
I’ve also appeared on TV a few times, mostly local, but once on the History Channel. (In general, I’m not eager to be in front of the camera. I like my privacy.) I’ve also scouted locations for TV producers, researched the histories of those sites, and so on. That’s one of my strengths.
Zak Bagans referenced me in his Ghost Hunting for Dummies book, as did Sean Platt and David W. Wright, in their book, Dark Crossings – Volume 3.
And I’ve been featured in publications such as The Hollywood Reporter, The Paris Review, The Independent, The Mirror, The Daily Mail, artnet News, The Jerusalem Post, Good Housekeeping (really), Readers Digest, and dozens more.
So, I’m a reliable resource if you are…
– A TV or movie producer in need of fresh, eerie locations or reliable historical research, or both.
– An aspiring ghost hunter or pro, and you want fresh insights for finding & investigating paranormal phenomena.
– Are a tenant or homeowner experiencing ghost-like activity in your home or workplace, and you need answers and (perhaps) solutions.
– An owner of a commercial, haunted site, and you’re looking for verifiable, historical documentation to support your ghost stories.
– An editor or publisher in need of research, chapters, or stories for current projects.
For most projects, I can work remotely. Really.
I (flippantly) describe myself as a “blip analyst.”
I look for odd things, not just ghosts, though the latter are my specialty.
I study what connects eerie locations, to better understand the phenomena, what causes it, and where to find similar anomalies for further research.
If you need a ghost story or phenomenon debunked, I’m skeptical enough to scrutinize the evidence carefully. I know many (but probably not all) ways to fake a haunting.
But, if you’re looking for support for a ghost story or anomaly, I’m enough of a believer to look for – and often find – the kind of evidence you seek. I’m a skilled historical researcher and genealogist. (Keep in mind: There’s no absolute, 100% reliable proof that ghosts exist.)
I want every cool ghost story to be true, but – in real life – I fact-check the tales and follow the evidence wherever it takes me.
Want to know more?
As someone who values privacy, I avoid sharing my personal details. However, if you’re still trying to understand who I am and why I pursue such an odd field of study, I’ve created a more personal bio page, Fiona Broome – Personal history.
Or perhaps it’s enough to know that I love visiting Disneyland and Disney World (but not scary attractions or roller coasters), I work at home (which makes it convenient to bake chocolate chip cookies), and I still follow my mother’s advice to look at the sky every day (to see how it changes). My husband and children think my best meal is chicken taco pie. And my hobbies include reading light fiction (clean Regency romances), hiking, and art journaling. Charities I support include Save the Children and the Nature Conservancy.
How to reach me
Most weekdays, I see any comments left at the Facebook Fiona Broome page. Also, I try to check LinkedIn regularly, but a comment here may reach me faster. (All comments are manually approved, so if it’s clearly a private message, I’ll be the only one to see it.)
Currently, I’m updating my websites and several past books. I’m researching and writing new books, too. (However, I’ve concluded my Mandela Effect research, at least for now. If you want to report a fresh, alternate memory, other websites and forums may welcome your insights.)
As time permits, I’m happy to work with producers and editors, for projects related to ghosts and haunted places. Also, when my schedule isn’t overloaded, I may be able to provide articles (and blurbs) for fellow writers. Go ahead and ask.
However – for now – I do not give interviews for most radio shows and podcasts. And, in general, I do not appear in front of the camera for any reason.
