Get ready to slip on your psychic walking shoes and ramble through tales of dead relatives who insist on having the last annoying word, ghosts behaving badly, inspiring near-death experiences, reincarnation, children’s invisible friends, departed pets leaving messages of love, angel visits, and dreams foretelling the future.
An award-winning science writer and journalist, Louisa Oakley Green became interested in paranormal phenomena when she married her psychic husband more than 20 years ago. Her recently published book, Sightseeing in the Undiscovered Country: Tales Retold by a Psychic Bystander, recounts more than 100 true paranormal stories from everyday people as well as exploring the latest consciousness research being done by universities and the government. Listed on The Huffington Post Best Independent Books of 2016, her book has won several national and international awards including the Indie Reader Discovery Awards, the National Indie Excellence Awards, and the Wishing Shelf Awards. The former skeptic has worked as a newspaper reporter, public relations manager, and creative director. A University of South Carolina journalism graduate, Green also studied science for medical writing in New Jersey and traditional astrology in London. Currently, she is working on a graduate degree at Drew University. She previously published one other book, Loitering at the Gate to Eternity: Memoirs of a Psychic Bystander. Her work and interests maintain a curiosity-inspired balance between science and mysticism.
