Blowing Kisses To: Diane Ladley

Windy City enjoyed a visit from a local Ghost Hunter, story teller, and author from Haunted Hometowns, Diane Ladley.

GHOST1Diane talked about the difference in types of supernatural phenomenon, fakers or charlatans (as she affectionately called them), and showed examples of the tools it takes to hunt ghosts.







Our time was over before we knew it and we were just getting to the good…er…creepy stuff!

A big thank you to Diane for visiting us at Windy City.
