How Linda become involved in Ghost Investigating:
Several years ago, Linda was giving a series of history lectures for the bicentennial of Rockland County, in southern New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley. One evening, someone asked about local ghosts and legends, so Linda told the one ghost story she knew. A few days later, she received a call. The excited voice on the other end of the line said, "Are you the ghost lady? I hear you give ghost talks!" Linda then added a few more ghost stories to her lectures, word spread, and by the end of the series, more people were showing up to hear about the ghosts than the history.
"From that point, my research into ghosts took on a life of its own," Linda explains (pun most definitely intended). "At first I just interviewed people who thought they had seen a ghost, but then the scientist in me wanted to personally conduct investigations."
