Kathleen Berry author of A Reluctant Spirit: A True Tale of God, Ghosts and a Skeptical Christian.


Kathleen Berry, "Both a skeptic and fear-filled Christian, I was the unlikeliest of characters to delve into the spirit world. At night, I shut the closet door tight, so I couldn't glance into its black void. I averted my eyes at every frightening point of horror movies. And I listened to the pulpit preach the evils of mediums and seeking out the paranormal. I believed all psychics were frauds or influenced by the devil and ghosts were only delusions manifested by the weak and simple.

Despite this, in 2007, I found myself in the preposterous situation of spending the night in reputedly one of the nation's most haunted hotels: the long-shuttered Goldfield Hotel in central Nevada. I went with the TV news crew from KTVN-Reno and three ghost hunters. My role? Impartial observer. Or so I thought.

That one night pulverized my small, more-easy-to-contain reality and greatly expanded my spiritual and religious beliefs. Ghosts do exist. Polite, cranky, sympathetic and desperately sad ones. I experienced them intimately as they engaged my senses of sight, touch, smell and hearing.

The result is my memoir, A Reluctant Spirit: A True Tale of God, Ghosts and a Skeptical Christian."
