Ghosts and ghouls, demons, poltergeists, phantoms, haunted houses, and shadow people—why is America so captivated by the creepy and unexplained? Paranormal Obsession is the first book to explore why we have an insatiable interest in spirits, ghost hunting, and all things otherworldly.

Paranormal investigator and researcher Deonna Kelli Sayed reveals how and why our fascination with spirits started. She interviewed ghost hunters, religious figures, scientists, academics, and cast members of the popular TV shows Ghost Hunters and Paranormal State, and offers compelling insight into what our fixation on ghostly activity says about American culture. Paranormal Obsession also highlights the author's paranormal group's investigation of the USS North Carolina, the most haunted battleship in the United States.

"Everyone can learn a thing or two from Deonna's writings. Her heart and soul are poured into every sentence."—Jason Hawes, co-founder of TAPS and co-star of the SyFy Channel show Ghost Hunters

"Thank you, Deonna, for getting it right."—Grant Wilson, co-founder of TAPS and co-star of the SyFy Channel show Ghost Hunters

It really is a spiritual and intellectual privilege to "ghost hunt." Deonna Kelli Sayed, paranormal investigator and author of So You Want to Hunt Ghosts? and Paranormal Obsession, discusses why ghost hunting has benefits reaching far beyond discovering the supernatural.

Paranormal investigation, namely ghost hunting, is enjoying phenomenal and unprecedented growth. This is due to the global broadcast of paranormal reality TV, and this avocation is now popular around the world. But do these shows get it right? What are they—and the paranormal community—missing from their investigations? Deonna Kelli Sayed, author of Paranormal Obsession, discusses the concept of psi and the concept of consciousness in paranormal investigation.

Sitting here in the dark, watching the moon shine over the autumn landscape (my favorite time of year) I find myself reflecting on the question that is most frequently asked of me: "How do I know if my house is haunted?" The question seems so simple, so endearing and direct, but it is as complex as the human mind or the spiritual realm and it... read this article
