Linda S. Godfrey is an author and researcher of the strange and uncanny, and is especially well known as an authority on the upright canine known in Wisconsin as the Beast of Bray Road, in Michigan as the Dog Man, in other places as Skinwalker, werewolf or a dozen other names. She appeared in, co-wrote and co-produced the History Channel's Monsterquest episode, "American Werewolf," based on her book "Hunting the American Werewolf" and also appeared in the show's season 4 finale.
She has canvassed Wis. and Michigan looking for the strange and offbeat, from outsider artists and giant roadside statues to local cemetery lore, eccentric people and history, to ghost stories and unidentified creatures and UFO's. She put over 5,000 miles on her "weirdmobile" and found enough strangeness to fill both Weird Michigan and Weird Wisconsin for Barnes & Noble in 2006, and the sequels, Strange Michigan and Strange Wisconsin for Trails Books.
Linda is a former award-winning newspaper reporter and art teacher and provides many illustrations for her own books.
She has appeared on many national TV and radio shows such as Inside Edition, Discover Kids, Travel Channel, Sci-Fi Channel's New In Search Of, Lost Tapes, Shatner's Weird or What, Coast to Coast AM radio, and many more. She is in demand as a featured speaker at libraries, conferences, schools and many other events
