If you died today, would you haunt your family?

If I died today, and it’s possible to come back by choice, I would do so, but “haunting” my family would not really be something that I would want to do. I suppose that I would check in with them to make sure that they are okay, but I would not stay around. I would be more interested in lingering at places that I loved during my lifetime, not bothering people – unless they deserved to be haunted, of course!

I guess this answers the other questions… but Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that there is an afterlife?

Absolutely! If it’s at all possible to return, I intend to do so and have a number of people with whom I have made arrangements to try and give them a sign. Unfortunately, one of the friends that I made the arrangement with died last year but I never heard anything for him (and neither did anyone else), which has me concerned about the viability of “returning by choice”, but I guess I’ll just have to wait and see when the time comes!

If you died today would you haunt your family?


And how would you haunt them?

I would haunt them in various ways depending on my abilities to do so in the afterlife. I would try to leave them messages or hints that I am fine and that there is indeed an afterlife. I would attempt to manifest as a full body apparition or whisper messages in their ears. If this did not work then I would take advantage of any technological means to leave an imprint of my existence, such as leaving messages on a voice recorder if operating or through the telephone, television or other available electronic devices.
How long would you stay around?

With having children I would feel obligated to watch over them. If I liked having the ability to haunt, then who knows? I may stay around several generations or outreach to others as well. Hell, maybe even the neighborhood grocery store would get visits from me.

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that there is an afterlife?

Most definitely yes!

If you died today Would you haunt your family?
I do not believe that ghosts see the world or even think like we do. I believe they dwell in a world of emotion. Because of my link to my family I would visit them because I love them. I believe this is rather common really. I would try in any way I could to help them.

And how would you haunt them?
I would make myself known to them, Maybe appear or do something symbolic so they would know that its me and to not be afraid. I would let them know I was OK and everything is as it should be. I would be there when it was their time to join me in the next life.

How long would you stay around?

I would stay round as long as I am needed. I may leave for a time only to return at the important points in the lives of my family and grandchildren. I do not believe ghosts live in our time frame so 20 years may seem like 1 to them.

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that their is an afterlife?

No. That seems such a trivial thing. You believe or you do not. I would comeback out of love to help my people in times of need. I would try to bring comfort. Besides, all of my family believe in an afterlife. I am no Houdini.


Lisa Lee Harp Waugh

A professional Necromancer and founder of the Sorcerers Guild of greater Houston and Galveston, Texas. Waugh has been practicing and conducting rituals for many paranormal investigators for over 20 years. Waugh also paints many spiritual and common murals and lives in a small Texas town with her three dogs. She also over the years makes ceremonial candles and is active in ghost hunting in the deep South. Summoning the dead to communicate with the living is a natural daily occurrence for Waugh. "I have been doing this since I was a child." " When I lived in Galveston, Texas about 15 years ago, I was introduced to the ancient rights of ceremonial Necromancy as a ritual by a great shaman called Freebird, and because of him and his diligence to the art, I still practice it until this day." "However, if a spirit has something vital to impart to you, they will call upon you, not vice-versa and no ritual is needed".

Waugh, a real big hearted Texas gal does not comment on any of this privately or publicly ... for she is humble in her paranormal studies and research to the core. Gina Lanier a close friend of her's relates: "Waugh is a very outgoing friendly, charming and a downright loveable person, and gets along equally well with the living and the dead." Lanier and Waugh once investigated a real Haunted Texas Federal Prison together for close to two years in the early 1990's and had many startling paranormal adventures while there.

The American Ghost Hunters Society is currently accepting new members all across the country for our network of ghost hunters, ghost writers and ghost enthusiasts.

If you died today, would you haunt your family?

No I would not haunt my family. I have no family left alive, except for my child, and I would not "haunt" her. I would like to be able to follow her through her life, make sure she is safe and ok.

And how would you haunt them?

Like I said above, there would not be a haunting, just a very watchful eye.

How long would you stay around?

I would love to hang around long enough to see my great great great grandchildren. And also to be able to see what the future holds for this earth. Maybe gas will only cost a nickel a gallon! Or maybe there will be cures for all illness. Something like that. And then I would go on to my next life and be happy that I have seen and witnessed change on the world of the living.

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that there is an afterlife?

I do not know if there is actually a way to come back and "tell" someone what is over there unless you use Necromancy or a medium. That is why no one here now actually knows for sure and sometime spirits or ghosts can only say what they know are possibly allowed to say. I think that is something for us all to find out in our own way. Like a surprise. Hopefully a good surprise.

If you died today would you haunt your family?

I would drop in from time to time. Hell I figure why not bring them some joy, I am sure they are fighting over my millions anyway...hahahaha
And how would you haunt them? Probably show up on gameday, sit on the couch and crack a beer with them, and ask for the remote. Now thats relaxation!

How long would you stay around?

As long as possible. But if I see an Exorcist coming in, I am floating to the hills, I am not into all that pea soup and drama......

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that their is an afterlife?

Yes I would, I have spent too much time not to have a conclusion to all of this. I would probably wake Troy Taylor and Loyd Auerbach out of a dead sleep and tell them hello and I'm HEEERRRREEEE!.....why not harrass your friends, and show ones enthusiasm for the study. I already promised Troy a specific signal so he would know its me, nothing like a friendly sign to confirm an appointment :).........heh heh heh


Charles J. Adams III

Charles J. Adams III, Reading, PA, is presently about to publish "Ghost Stories of the Lehigh Valley, Book Two," and will begin several more books in the fall. I will be doing ghost research in Europe this summer, and embark on a very busy storytelling schedule in September. I have also been asked to serve as an "expert" for two worldwide television production companies doing shows about haunted places.

Charles J. Adams III is a native of Berks County, Pennsylvania, where he resides today. He has written 30 books on ghosts, shipwrecks, train wrecks, and baseball.
If you died today would you haunt your family? And how would you haunt them? How long would you stay around?
I often use the words "haunted" and "enchanted" interchangeably. Thus and so, I would prefer to say I would "enchant" my family with my ghostly presence. I would, if I could, help to guide them in the right direction, bring good fortune to them, and provide some humor for them. I woud "stay around" until they came to join me wherever I am and in whatever form I would be.
Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that their is an afterlife?
I don't think I would. As a living, breathing human, I am intrigued by the mystery of whatever is on "the other side." I wouldn't want to destroy that mystery.

Susan Sheppard

Not only is Susan Sheppard the creator of the Haunted Parkersburg Ghost Tours, she is also well respected for her abilities as a psychic medium. She has worked as psychic and a spiritualist medium since age fourteen and as a paranormal investigator for the last decade. This came about when her friends overheard a well-known psychic tell Susan that she, too, had "the gift" and should use her special abilities to help others. This was no surprise to Susan's family who had witnessed her uncanny abilities since early childhood.

Her West Virginia childhood might have some bearing on her interest in the paranormal. Sheppard is "Black Dutch," meaning she is descended from the less than 850 Shawnee Indians who remained east of the Mississippi River after the other Shawnee (during the "Trial of Tears" removal) were forced onto reservations out west in the 1830s. Susan, along with others in the Friend family, is a direct descendent of Shawnee Chief Big Thunder through his daughter, Bright Lightning, whose name was anglicized to "Anna Friend."

Susan grew up just a few hills away from the first sighting of the famous West Virginia Mothman. It was during this time that Sheppard’s family home underwent a great deal of paranormal activity sparking her interest in the unknown while tapping into her natural psychic talents. However, Sheppard has had direct communications with spirits of her Native American ancestors since around age four when she met the ghosts of two Indian braves on the hillside above her grandparent's house in broad daylight. Though very small, she understood the braves to be both her ancestors and her guides. Ms. Sheppard’s adolescence was spent partly doing psychic readings along with school work and sometimes working with local law enforcement on missing person cases. She later grew up with the aspirations of becoming a published author and an artist, both of which she achieved. Sheppard has authored a number of popular books which are sold worldwide and has continued with her art in many venues. Her poetry alone has won many prestigious awards.

Susan has never strayed from her interests in the spirit world and has continued to work in the field as a medium, as well as a practicing astrologer. In the last few years she has worked primarily as a psychic medium and a paranormal investigator on various ghost hunts and investigations. She also leads séances, does clearings and performs platform style readings before the public for which she is the most famous in her area.

Last year, Susan was featured on the ABC Family Channel’s popular show “Scariest Places on Earth” as a psychic medium at the Shawnee Amusement Park in Bluefield, West Virginia. She has previously taught “Be Your Own Psychic” classes at the Self-Health & Awareness Center and continues appear before audiences and live television as a psychic medium.

Not only is Susan an exceptional psychic, she is knowledgeable in the field of the unknown. She remains up-to-date on the latest developments in research concerning the paranormal. Contact her at sheppard@wirefire.com

Susan Sheppard  -- Haunted Parkersburg Ghost Tours

If you died today would you haunt your family?

Of course not. Unless there was a real reason to return -- sometimes spirits like to return to places they once lived in order to remember, re-experience the past life time, or to bring a message across to the living. I don't haunt my family by showing up and living with them right now so I doubt would do that after death.

And how would you haunt them?

I suppose if I did, I would appear in dreams and try to bring my message across to the living. Or I would move or displace objects that may have had something to do with my former life in order for them to figure out who is doing the haunting.

How long would you stay around?

Only moments of time. Earth is slow and tedious -- it is so much faster and easier to move about as a spirit in the afterlife. If you can imagine a life with no aches and pains, and instantaneous emotions and connections, unhindered by space and time, why would anyone want to come back here? There has to be a strong reason for a spirit to return such as some buried treasure, a problem in the will or to warn someone of oncoming danger. However, many ghosts don't like letting go of their jobs or duties -- especially if they invested a lot of energy into them. I've met many workaholic ghosts.

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that their is an afterlife?

I don't think most ghosts even care about that. Most come back to reassure their loved ones that they are just fine and to not grieve too much over their passings. In fact, most tales of ghosts are spirit recordings or residual hauntings, meaning is a type of time warp where there is no personality to the ghost -- that the soul has aleady moved on.

From where we stand, there's a real need for a paranormal hub where people can discuss ghost pictures and psychics along with other phenomena including but certainly not limited to ufo's and cryptozoology.

If you died today, would you haunt your family?

No. I might spy on a couple of my ex-girlfriends but that would be about it. Ok, that was COMPLETELY a joke.

And how would you haunt them?

I might hang out for the funeral but I think I can find better things to do than stick around with family to hear them bad mouth me once I'm gone. Again, I kid because I love.

How long would you stay around?

Only briefly. I'd like to think there is a whole other world to see on the other side.

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that their is an afterlife?

Where's the fun in that? If Houdini didn't do it, I certainly wouldn't. Besides, I would put all the Franks Box and K2 people out of business. With the economy like it is, I would feel bad to be putting people out of work.

ABSOLUTELY! They cannot get rid of me THAT easily!


My family has been around me and my life work a long time, and therefore they know and understand the spirit world. I would be there for all their needs and yet leave them alone in their personal and quiet times ~ unless I felt ornery ~. But I WOULD be there for all major events, holidays, and to let them know I love them. Understand I will also have a life of my own to conduct on the other side, but as I get on with it, I will be making a comfortable place for them when their time comes.


Well, for my critics, FOREVER, a thorn in theirs side! LOL! But for those I love, again, I will be there for comfort in their needs. Dying has nothing to do with leaving others, it is about moving to another place. You come back to visit.


Absolutely. Of course. My family already knows there is another side as we all see Spirit. But yes, I would, why would we want anyone to be unclear about that? Letting people know there is an afterlife makes their own mortality easier to accept, as well as the acceptance of the death of those they love. We never lose people or pets, we are still able to be in communication.

Whenever he speaks, his credo is simple: when ghosthunting, just keep an open mind, respect the place and the spirits there, and enjoy the experiences that you encounter.

Ghost In My Suitcase

If you died today, would you haunt your family?

If I had the choice to come back and visit, I most definitely would, if for no other reason than to let them know that I was okay and that we do continue on a different plane of existence. I’m not sure that everyone is presented with that option, though. Houdini, for example, worked out a code word that he would deliver to his wife it was at all possible. He sincerely wanted to do that, but she never got the message – it appears that old Harry couldn’t find a way back. I have several personal friends, though, who each saw their spouse after losing them to death, and in every case it made a huge impact on their lives. Why one person seems to be able to come back while another doesn’t, I can’t begin to explain. If given the opportunity, though, I’ll be back.

And how would you haunt them?

I hope to be able to come back and visit the 1861 house that we live in. Some of the former owners who have passed on still do, so maybe I can join their ranks. After finding some personal way to let my wife know that it was me, and that everything was fine, I’d probably just hang out. I imagine that I would come back to my favorite spot – the rocking chair on the front porch. Whoever owns the house a hundred years from now will probably talk about how the rocking chair starts rocking by itself and there’s the smell of fresh coffee in the air… that’ll be me.

How long would you stay around?

To be honest, I don’t know. I’m sure that there are wonderful things to do on the other side that we can’t even imagine, but I would enjoy coming back occasionally just to look in on things.

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that there is an afterlife?

Certainly – especially if by doing so I could bring them some comfort. A friend’s mother died after a terrible illness, and my friend was in anguish over her mom’s death… that is, until her mother came back for a visit one evening. My friend said that she looked young and happy, and it left her satisfied in the knowledge that wherever her mother had gone, she was doing well. If I could help a loved one like that, I definitely would.

Ghost Tours Of Galveston Island

If you died today would you haunt your family?

Yes their are a few people from my life I would love to keep tabs on. When you worry about people in life I don't think you stop worrying about them just because you die.

And how would you haunt them?

I would more likely watch over a few.....not haunt.

H ow long would you stay around?

Until all the questions I have had been answered.

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that their is an afterlife?

Yes, if on the other side deemed it to be necessary as knowledge and purpose is greater there.

GhostBreakers Paranormal Research Organization

If you died today would you haunt your family?

I would visit my family as anyone would but have many others I would HAUNT relentlessly! Some just for fun.

And how would you haunt them?

Those I would haunt? ... I would annoy them in a way that could be compared to a toothache. A long lasting anoying pain that won't go away no matter where they went. Haunt them. No sense haunting a place. They could leave. Also making sure they would associate it only with me.

How long would you stay around?

As long as I was able but, at least until they were able to haunt someone too. However, if I could have my way, I wish all my enemies would live to be 100. And my voice would be the last thing they ever heard!

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that their is an afterlife?

I have every plan of doing so if I am able. But I will do it for my family and organization so they get the credit for proving the existence of the paranormal. However, if I could get one Scientist to work with me. I think we could be well on the way of proving the link between science and the paranormal. Long before I am able to haunt anyone.

Alan Rupnik

Alan Rupnick is thirty-six years old and resides in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He has had an enthusiastic interest in ghosts and haunted locations since he was a child. While he has dabbled in the field since 1989 when he had his second unexplained encounter with the paranormal, he began his most serious research in 1998. In 2001 Alan founded the paranormal investigations team Apparitions Inc. The team investigated several haunted locations and cemeteries in their time together. Their most noteworthy being the Historic Karsten Inn located in Kewaunee, Wisconsin. The group disbanded in 2003.

Alan spent a lot of his time researching and talking with others online. Though he believed the Internet was a great wealth of information he felt that it was too spread out and a lot of work was required to find new and relevant information. Keeping in touch with others in the field also proved to be a time consuming problem.

Alan has always had a love for computers and the Internet. He had educated himself in the art of web development and loved building websites. He decided he would put his skills to use to create a place where all who loved the paranormal could gather, share information and stay in touch. On November 15, 2006 he launched IAmHaunted.com, a paranormal community that was like no other. It was an idea that was long over due and the site is growing in leaps and bounds. It is without a doubt one of the most visited paranormal sites on the Internet today.

Alan continues his research today. Currently he is conducting experiments on the Ouija Board and EVP. He is also researching cold spots, electromagnetic fields, battery drain and other phenomenon that takes place in a haunted location. He believes that the current explanations don’t have any scientific foundation and are just generic answers given when people are cornered with a tough question and don’t have a legitimate answer

I Am Haunted is a social network for those who are interested in the paranormal. Whether your interest is ghosts and hauntings, UFOs, cryptozoology, psychic abilities or anything off the beaten path, you will find thousands of people sharing photos, experiences and friendship.

If you died today would you haunt your family?

Yes, I would haunt them.

And how would you haunt them?

Well, those who thought I was crazy would soon learn otherwise and for those who are closest to me such as my son, I’d merely watch over them and gently let them know that I will always be with them.

How long would you stay around?

I think I would stay around until my son was grown and I knew he would be alright.

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that their is an afterlife?

Yes I believe that I would. Providing that sort of thing was within my power to do so.

Haunts Of Owensboro, Kentucky

If you died today, would you haunt your family?

No I would go straight to heaven. I’ve been waiting so long to go. If God let me look in on them then that would be ok.

And how would you haunt them?

In Pictures or maybe try to communicate somehow. I wouldn’t want to scare them, so maybe just pictures.

How long would you stay around?

Just long as God would let me and as long as God would let me go back to heaven.

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that there is an afterlife?

Yes, but as long as it wouldn’t scare them. I think everybody’s curious about the afterlife. So finally why not let someone know. Of course depending how one believes then one might already know.

If you died today would you haunt your family?

Probably - my kids are too young and still at home (age two and seven currently)
Let me say the earlier I would pass on the more "NOT READY to go, and therefore, I am the more likely to stay behind if possible. That is *if* I could, I would prefer to stay around probably.

And how would you haunt them?

I would feel a need to watch over them, I would miss them terribly and I would worry about them.
For example, If my 2 year old baby Daughter approached the edge of a staircase and almost falls I would try to push her to safety. I would really ache to hold her and hug my son and wife again. That isn’t easy to let go some emotional attachments.

I may whisper in my Sons ear to discourage him from making bad choices, and in making good ones. As like an alternate "conscience".

How long would you stay around?

That one is hard to say, perhaps at some point I would realize I can't do much in spirit, and would move on. I don't know how much of a choice I have anyway, and if I could really carry on like that for long. But sometimes it is hard to let go of love ones I suppose even for the departed themselves. I defiantly would find it hard to on look as my daughter dates some questionable characters in boyfriends later in life.
And helplessly have to witness their courtship without influence.

It would be hard too leave my family now, and I hope and pray it doesn't happen for a long while, at least until my kids are grown and out on their own...

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that their is an afterlife?

If it would serve them a purpose to know it, sure. Such an experience can be life
changing. Hey if that could help get or keep someone on the right spiritual path I say "Yes"

Haunted And Paranormal Investigations

If you died today would you haunt your family?

I would definitely haunt my family. In fact we all have a pact together, taken the nature of my career, that we will haunt each other to prove my theories correct!

And how would you haunt them?

I would scare the hell out of them first by throwing open some cupboards or something fun like that. Then I would take items of mine and put them in strategic places in my home so that they know it's me. I am famous for leaving my crap all over the house. Then if I had enough energy to appear and speak to them, I totally would!

How long would you stay around?

I would stay around for as long as I could without getting too lonely. I think that if no one could see or hear me that I would be incredibly sad. But, if you know me you know I am not quiet, so I'd probably be around for a LONG time! I'd change my name to "Canterville Shannon". I've always liked that movie.

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that their is an afterlife?

Duh! That is what I have been trying to do for 13 years! If I didn't do that, my job would be pointless!

Also need your name short updated bio like what your involved in now --- this is a story in the works

Laine Crosby is an Investigative Medium (www.investigativemedium.com) and works on missing person cases, and with authors, historians, archaeologists and paranormal investigators to help understand what history has not revealed. Until a few years ago, Laine worked in corporate America, juggling the work and mother dichotomy, when she literally woke up one morning talking to dead people- and they talked back! Since then, she has given up the corporate world to answer to her conscience.

Laine's current projects include a non-fiction book about how she became suddenly psychic, Investigative Medium: The Awakening which should be available this year. Mark Nesbitt and Laine are business partners and own the newly launched Ghost Channel (www.ghostchannel.tv), and the duo also host the vastly popular Internet talk show, Ghost Talkers, available as a download on the Ghost Channel, and web cast at www.ghosttalkers.net. Laine owns The Paranormal Place, www.theparanormalplace.com, which is a paranormal Drudge Report, a one-stop shop for paranormal news, Who's Who in the paranormal industry, and investigations.

Laine's work as a medium has been in The Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Baltimore Examiner, and Maryland's The Daily News and Record among other local and national papers. She has appeared on the Michael Medved Show, Eerie Pennsylvania with Brad Christman, and the syndicated Travel Host show with Jeff Campbell, as well as many times on the local WB and Fox News affiliates for Baltimore and DC. She can be seen on the Ghosts of Gettysburg episode of The Travel Channel's Mysterious Journeys, now airing. Laine is a transmedium and is clairaudient, clairsentient, and clairvoyant. Laine has helped historians, historical organizations, authors and archaeologists discover details about the history of locations in Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.

Ghost Talkers is a paranormal Talk Show with Ghosts of Gettysburg author Mark Nesbitt and Investigative Medium Laine Crosby.

If you died, today would you haunt your family?

I assume the term "haunt" is used loosely here since this questionnaire is sent to paranormal investigators and could mean simply to return to family or stick around and hide their car keys. Both sound like fun. However, I have a pretty good idea I would immediately cross over and then return as a spirit, and not a ghost, stuck in this physical dimension. Many of the spirits I help cross over (actually God does the work, I am just the mouthpiece) return a day or a week later to let me know they are alright, or to give messages to folks here. Love is the strongest emotion, and love is an impenetrable force, and nothing could keep me away, as a result.

There are forces in our lives that we can understand and explain, and there are others that mystify and confuse us. But the bond of love between a parent and a child, and amongst family, even when severed by death, has no end, for love is a force that lives without beginning and without end. The ability to love is the most ennobling gift, and its power can be felt beyond death and beyond time. So, yes, as my parents and loved ones have done before me, I will return to my family to ensure they are safe and follow their life's path, but mostly, because I love them. They are my Heaven, and fortunately, in the many dimensions about which Charles WIlliams has enlightened us through his writings, we have free will and are able to come and go into this dimension as well. We also know from the writing of Elsa Barker, when she channeled Judge David P. Hatch after his death I 1912, a thousand years is a day on the other side. Remaining with those we love for their lives is such a small amount of time that it does not keep us from doing our soul's work.

And how would you haunt them?

Fortunately, my children are also mediums, and so visiting them would be a joy since they can both feel me, and hear me, and my daughter can see me. I might have to hide my husband's car keys since he gives me such a hard time about losing mine so often.

How long would you stay around?

I would be close whenever I am needed, but I would always watch what was going on in their lives and be available for them at all times. Thoughts are things, and on the other side, we can be called by the thoughts of others and travel miles in a split-second by our own thoughts.

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that there is an afterlife?

I would have to visit my business partner, Mark Nesbitt, regularly to give him some really good evp. In fact, he might be fun to haunt, as well! I just love to see him pull out his little black notebook and so excitedly take notes of a paranormal event.

If you died today would you haunt your family?

I wouldn't necessarily haunted anyone in my family, but I would like to visit occasionally and leave some signs. I think it would be wonderful to approach them in dreams where we get to visit and then when they wake up- they feel better about my going.

And how would you haunt them?

No haunting of my family and friends but I would enjoy
"messing" with them occasionally! Who could turn THAT down??

How long would you stay around?

If I did haunt, it would only be a few months but I don't plan on it. Unless of course someone is responsible for my sudden death- like the WV Greenbriar Ghost case- then I would haunt to have justice done.

Would you come back from the other side to let someone know that there is an afterlife?

I would love to come back and tell others of the "afterlife" and what lies beyond. If it's good news who wouldn't want to know!?
