Beth Brown is an award-winning author, speaker, and media presenter based in Richmond, Virginia.
She began investigating the paranormal in 1989 when a mentor sent her to interview the owners of a 250-year old home overflowing with reports of unexplained activity. Photographs and audio recordings made that day ignited her curiosity about life after death and set the wheels in motion for more than two decades of research.
In 2007, Beth founded the Virginia Society of Paranormal Education and Research (VASPER) to provide a venue for training, networking, and resource-sharing for paranormal investigation teams throughout the region. She is a Professional Member of the Rhine Research Center in Durham, NC, and is currently conducting ongoing experiments with real-time spirit communication.
Beth is the author of several books about paranormal investigation and paranormal phenomena, including Conducting a Paranormal Investigation – a Training Guide and Haunted Plantations of Virginia, winner of the Library of Virginia People’s Choice Award.
Her decades of field study at Civil War battle sites helped her to earn the reputation as the foremost expert on the topic of trauma haunts. Beth’s research of some of these historic locations is summarized in her books Haunted Battlefields: Virginia’s Civil War Ghosts and the forthcoming More Haunted Battlefields.
From September, 2008 until February, 2011, Beth hosted The Paranormal View, a controversial talk radio program featured on CBS Radio. She is the co-creator, co-host, and producer of Full Spectrum Radio for PsiFM Australia and syndicated around the world.
Beth has served as a paranormal consultant to several media outlets, including A&E Network, CBS, PBS, and Travel Channel. She appeared as a judge in multiple episodes of the Travel Channel series “Paranormal Challenge” with Zak Bagans, and was featured as the paranormal liaison in the pilot episode of the Bio Channel series “Celebrity Ghost Hunt” with psychic Chip Coffey.
