This website answers the most frequently asked questions about ghosts, ghost hunting, and haunted places. They’re from the book by professional ghost hunter Fiona Broome.
Where did the questions & answers come from?
In 2014, ghost hunter Fiona Broome gathered the most popular questions about ghosts.
She answered them in her book, 101 Ghost Hunting Questions, Answered.
Then, in 2016, she posted the most popular questions – and answers, from that book – here.
In 2020, she updated many of those answers, and republished the book in paperback, as well as in Kindle, where it’s FREE to read in Kindle Unlimited.
For over 30 years, Fiona Broome has been an author, researcher and paranormal consultant.
She studies unexplained phenomena in everyday life. Her main focus has always been ghost research. (She also studies faeries and some crypto zoology, and – inadvertently, around 2009 – popularized the Mandela Effect concept.)
An unabashed geek, Fiona analyzes and sometimes predicts paranormal activity. She studies patterns of all kinds, including ley lines.
In ghost hunting, Fiona is fascinated by the reasons why some places and object (or the people around them) seem haunted… and others aren’t.
Luckily (for her, anyway), she usually finds answers in history and geography.
Sometimes, real history doesn’t match popular “ghost stories.” That’s exactly why it’s important: It gives us new clues to why some sites report paranormal activity, and where to look for even more.
Fiona’s first ghost hunting website was “Yankee Haunts,” at GeoCities. In 1999, she launched Hollow Hill, one of the Internet’s first and largest ghost hunting websites.
Since 1999, she’s continued to research paranormal activity and what causes it.
For several years, Fiona was a regular invited Guest at Dragon Con and many paranormal conferences in the U.S. and Canada.
Today, Fiona prefers to focus on her research and writing.
Due to Fiona’s ghost hunting expertise, she was the model for the “Fiona” character in Trickery Treat, the final novel in the first Charmed TV series books.
She’s also been a consultant for several other authors and a location scout (and historian) for TV series.
Most recently, Fiona has been updating her old books, working on new books and ghost hunting courses, and making her websites more useful to visitors.
