Bridget LaFont 20 QUESTIONS


1. Where do you see ghost hunting and Paranormal groups, web sites or Ghost information, tours, Books being in contact with ghosts like your own in 10 years?

I hope to see a continuing growing interest in the paranormal. It is amazing how even over the last few years people are more comfortable opening up about their spirituality and interest in the paranormal. I would also like to see the much talked about "telephone to the dead", the two-way communication device, progress and be made available to the general public of paranormal investigators.

2. What would you personally consider to be the definitive proof that ghosts are real?

I think most people have had thier own personal experiences or know someone who has. NPI (NorCal Paranormal Investigators) seeks to obtain a combination of hard-core evidence such as video of apparitions, good EVP recordings, temperature changes, and photos...thats about as far as the technology that ghost hunters have available at the present time will allow us to go. People don't want to just hear a good story, they want concrete evidence that they can see with their own eyes.


3. What is the most real evidence you personally have uncovered so far?

As a group, NPI has captured some pretty good EVP recordings, photos, and infrared video. Our NPI President Doug Carnahan captured a pretty good apparition on camera at an investigation. I think we are all waiting to catch that full bodied apparition on video though!

4. Are you skeptical of the claims other make of their findings?

Definately. I think as a professional you have to be. Sometimes people are so excited to catch a ghost that they forget to attempt to properly debunk thier own claims.


5. If you could investigate your "Dream Haunted Hot Spot" where would it be?

This is a hard one. I would have to say Myrtles Plantation, the Hellfire Caves in Europe, St. Augustine Lighthouse in Florida (TAPS caught some pretty amazing evidence there), and we can't forget about our good old castles in Ireland! Hopefully soon NPI will be able to investigate some of these places


6. What was your first Paranormal encounter?

The first experience I had that I truly believe to be paranormal was when I was about 15 or 16 years old. I lived in King City, California at the time. It was the middle of summer (about 100 degrees) and my mother and I were walking around the corner in the hallway to get to the garage. I felt a freezing cold chill and saw a bright flash of white light. It felt like my heart skipped a beat. My mother was the first to mention the incident, so I know it wasn't just me who felt it. We both had goosebumps. We think the entity may have passed through us. After the incident, I learned that my sister had seen a white male figure pass outside her bedroom window, and she and a family friend saw it pass through the living room in our home and through the door.


7. What scares you about Ghost Hunting or Paranormal Investigations?

I don't really get scared. For me it's more of an excitement. It's like an adrenaline rush for me to go into a reportedly haunted location and know that one day I may come face to face with an entity.


8. If you could work side by side with one of the Paranormal Investigator greats, who would it be?


I would have to say Harry Price if he were alive. He was the pioneer of paranormal investigation. He was an expert at debunking and honest investigating. It would be awesome to see how he would react to the technology we have available today and how he would put it to use. I am also a fan of Troy Taylor and Jeff Belanger. All of the people I work with in NPI are great too. I love my job working with them!


9. Read any good Paranormal Books lately other then your own?

I can't seem to read enough on the subject. The Ghost Hunter's Guidebooks by Troy Taylor are very helpful for learning your equipment, and everyone should have a copy of The Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits by Rosemary Ellen Guiley for reference. I love to read about haunted locations too.


10. What Question do people ask you most when you tell them your a paranormal investigator, writer?

I think they mostly want to know what we have seen. I get all kinds of questions on the subject. We have a blogtalkradio show called "NorCal Ghost Talk" on www.blogtalkradio.com every Sunday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. to answer and discuss questions.


11. In your opinion, Where is the most Haunted city in America?

I believe New Orleans, Louisiana probably has an ample amount of spirits. Maybe Tombstone, Arizona too.


12. Do you feel more people should get involved with Ghost hunting or Paranormal Investigation?

I think people should definately get more educated about the subject, but as far as actual investigating goes, it should be for those who are serious and professional. It is hard to convince some people that we are not weird and crazy, so professionalism is a must in this field. There are a lot of people who don't believe, but we are here to help those that do.


13. What does the future hold for you?

Ideally, I would love for NPI to get our own TV show and be able to take time from our day to day jobs to travel the world investigating haunts.

14. Paranormal Conventions do you see them growing?

I think conventions could go either way. As long as they are reputable and honest, I would love to attend them. I have been to conventions and they are great for networking and sharing information


15. What is your most favored tool of the trade?

The thermal imaging camera, hands down. Anything that allows you to see actual apparitions through cold and hot spots is an ideal tool. Of course, you would need to combine this tool with others, but it helps to have tools that reveal what your own eyes cannot see.


16. Tell us about your best moment in investigating or conference attending for you?

My best moment so far was a conference I attended that led me to meet NPI President and Co-Founder Doug Carnahan and Shane Thornton. Had I not attended that conference, I would not be a part of NPI today. Investigating with them from that point on has been a lot of fun.

17. What is the hardest part about being paranormal investigator?

The hardest part is having to sit and wait for things to happen. It is a lot of waiting and a lot of work. It isn't just running around having spirits appear at your request. The wait is all worth it though when you come out with evidence that cannot be debunked!


18. How do you document your investigations?

NPI travels with a film crew. We document our evidence on DVD and on our website www.norcalghosthunters.com.


19. Have you ever taken a ghost Tour?

My boyfriend Albert De La Cruz (NPI's Tech Manager) took me to the reportedly haunted Queen Anne Hotel in San Francisco, California on my birthday one year. We took the ghost tour from the Hotel. Tours are fun, but are mostly centered around entertainment. Guides can't really rely on spirits to show every time, so they use props to keep it interesting. Definately fun though.


20. What in the field of ghost hunting and Paranormal Investigating needs the most attention?

In my opinion, weeding out the hoaxes and fake pictures posted out there. Too many people seem to get excited about things without debunking. For example, orbs are usually bugs or dust, and vortexes tend to be camera straps, smoke, or hair. More attention should go to educating investigators how to properly debunk rather than displaying footage and pictures of natural occurrances. The more we investigate, the more likely we are to capture true evidence!
