Who Ya Gonna Call? Me.

me in uniform before an investigation at the John Brown House in MD

Ding!Ding! Ding! The prize goes out to Bellaquilter! (Her answer? "Here's my guess: You're the historian for the DC Metro Area Ghost Watchers and you will be speaking at the Decatur House Museum about Ghosts!")

Yup! Since it's Halloween-time and a busy time of year for me, I might as well go ahead and tell everyone else...

I am a ghosthunter.

That's right. A bonafide, out there at haunted places, things-that-go-bump-in-the-night chasing ghosthunter and have been for 6 years. I am considered a national expert on ghosts and hauntings and have been in major national and international newspapers and even the White House has interviewed me about their ghosts. I am the Historian for DCMAG--the great local group that I work with--which means that I research articles, deeds, and other historical info to determine the facts from fiction at a site. I've had a chance to visit some fantastic places, including haunted castles in Ireland, but I like the private home ones as well. As I'm a Sr. Agent, I also go on investigations too. It's fun and exciting and I enjoy helping our clients find out what's going on in their homes and how to cope with it. If you'd like to know more, you can go to my site at dcghosts.org or read my blog at Ghosthunter L. Whew.

So WHY do they have those plumbers on TV doing ghostbusting when they could have you???

This is way cool.. and opens up lots of venues for work.

Hey I forgot to mention that there is a very big hotel here in Taipei that is haunted...the Hyatt Regency Grand Hotel here in Taipei is haunted they say. I've only been there to eat lunch and dinner so can't speak from experience. Apparently they built it on the site of a kind of mass grave...when the japanese had invaded the island they killed a bunch of people at this site. The chinese believe very strongly in ghosts...see my post about ghost month..ok so how do I add a link to that post on my blog? the url is: http://bellaquilts.blogspot.com/2005/08/ghost-month.html
will that work?
