In 1977 when single mother Peggy Hodgson first witnessed strange noises and furniture seeming to move on its own she called the police.

3 Weird Things That Happened To Me (& Why I Still Don’t Believe In Ghosts)

11 July, 2014 // 9 Comments

Every time I speak at a conference or similar event there is a Q&A session directly after my talk and, more often than not, someone will ask me “Have you ever experienced something weird that you cannot explain?” Yes, is the response.
