More About the Author

I work full-time in the paranormal and metaphysical fields, which means I lead a most unusual and highly adventurous life. I have written more than 50 books, including single-volume encyclopedias, on a variety of topics, A-Z, angels to zombies and everything in between. I cover the entire spectrum of the paranormal, for everything fits together, even the paranormal and the metaphysical. My work is part of my spiritual journey; probing into the Unknown, the Other Side, and other dimensions is my search for Truth.

I undertake field investigations of ghosts, UFOs, aliens, ultraterrestrials, Shadow People, Bigfoot, mysterious creatures, Djinn, demons, angels, fairies and more. I am frequently out on the road, and I have had plenty of first-hand experiences of many of the things I document in my books. We live on an "Interdimensional Earth" that is increasingly revealing itself as our consciousness expands. My work is devoted to the how and why we have other-reality experiences, and to helping people understand their experiences and integrate the value of them into life. I also deal with problem hauntings and spirit attachments.

On the metaphysical side, my work is devoted to helping people develop their spiritual path for more enlightened and prosperous living. My areas of emphasis are angels; dreams and dreamwork; intuitive, psychic and manifestation skills; the afterlife; spirit communication; meditation and prayer; past lives; and other experiences of an intense spiritual nature. I am a certified hypnotist with the International Hypnosis Federation, and have trained in various energy healing modalities.

In addition to my research and writing, I keep a busy media and lecture schedule, publish a complimentary e-newsletter called "Strange Dimensions," and run my own publishing and productions company, Visionary Living, Inc.

I can still remember the bizzare story that came across the wire services in 1966 about a mysterious man-bird that chased two young couples in a car on a lonely West Virginia road. My first visit to that state was years later was after I had read "The Mothman Prophecies" by John Keel which detailed the strange events surrounding Point Pleasant, Wv. I wanted to see this mysterious state & visit the places that Keel mentioned & see what is was like for myself. Now there is a book which has collected a broad spectrum of "monsters" & high strangeness present in the mysterious mountain state.

It is our good fortune that Rosemary Ellen Guilley has authored "Monsters of West Virginia" in Stackpole's "monsters" series. Ms. Guiley has authored close to 50 books on different aspects on the paranormal & has done a great deal of work in the field -- to the point where she herself has experienced some of the high strangeness that other authors & researchers only write about. She has walked the trails in the infamous TNT area (alleged home of the Mothman), witnessed many different types of unexplained phenomena, spoken one on one with many of the experiencers of the paranormal, & even encountered a possible dopppelganger!! Ms. Guiley not only brings her excellent scolarship to this work, where she has uncovered new information about old cases, like the Grafton Monster, but she has also consulted with several experts in the field including Frank Feschino who has provided updated information on the Flatwoods Monster case of 1952.

It dosen't get much better than encountering strange blobs, flying manta rays, Snallygasters, a fresh look at Point Pleasants Mothman,& other creepy denizens that lurk in the shadows & hide in the hollars.

Format: Paperback
[Disclaimer: The final chapter of this book, "The Enchanted Holler," details many of the paranormal experiences my family has had on our 3 acres in north central West Virginia. I will not be discussing this chapter in this review and I do not believe that this precludes me from making a fair judgment about the rest of the book. JM]
There is an illustration going around Facebook recently that lists the qualifications of a Paranormal Researcher in the past as compared to now. As one can imagine, in this age of ready (but often questionable) Internet "data" and a glut of paranormal shows on cable television, anyone with a camcorder, an EMF meter (which a 10-year-old friend of my daughter's recently got as a Christmas present), and some curiosity, what passes as a Researcher/Investigator is nowhere near as rigorous as it used to be.
True professionals do the leg work--literally--traipsing the natural landscapes and man-made locations where sightings are reported to have happened and spending countless hours in libraries and archives reading past accounts and, even better, interviewing witnesses.
True professionals in the field of Paranormal Research must do many things well: they must understand basic scientific principles, which can account for phenomena otherwise mistaken to be "paranormal"; they must be historians, anthropologists, and sociologists; they must also be adept at the skills of the writer and storyteller.
Most of all, they must be willing to be disappointed, or to not hold expectations that their forays into the field will bear tangible fruit.
Based on all of these criteria, I can highly recommend any of the previous 50 books written by Rosemary Ellen Guiley, and this new one is no exception. Why?

I grew up in West Virginia hearing stories of unknown animals and high strangeness. One of my Junior High teachers encountered a creature like Bigfoot one day driving home on the lonely mountain roads, a "black panther" prowled around my grandparents house for several weeks, there are places up in the hills not far from the capital where you can find berries that are native to New Zealand or Japanese koi living in a old drainage pond. I myself have encountered at least two species that don't seem to have been documented by science. This book represents the most comprehensive overview of West Virginian monsters to date.

Format: Paperback
As author of The Haunted History of the West Virginia Penitentiary: Afterlife With No Parole and Fireside Folklore of West Virginia: Vol. I (Volume 1), I like to think I know the spookiness of the Mountain state pretty well. I am a fan of Rosemary's and was pleasantly surprised to see her document the weird monsters and unexplained creatures that cross the mountains and forests of West Virginia. After my purchase arrived, I flipped thru page after page nodding my head in agreement. What a great round up of the weird and unusual. This book is a must have for any cryptozoologist worth their weight in Bigfoot droppings. On a serious note, get the book. You may never want to camp outside in West Virginia again...or maybe so!

Well done, Rosemary!

Monsters of West Virginia is a well researched book that is not only informative but very entertaining. It comes off with a great deal of credibility. I would recommend to anyone who wants to know more about these unknown creature sightings.
