Fiona Broome's book, The Ghosts of Salem, Massachusetts, has met with delays. Her Salem research began
in 2006, when she revisited favorite childhood haunts around "Witch City."
In 2008, Fiona and her family
returned to New England so that Fiona could dedicate more time to on-site research in Salem,
and neighboring haunted locations throughout Boston's North Shore.
2010, Fiona resumed contract discussions with her publisher, but they
stalled. Since then, completion of the book has been postponed.
Fiona's goal has been to present a
unique book with Salem's classic "ghost stories" as well as the facts
behind them. Fiona's research led to her discovery of an energy line
she's called "the Judges' Line" in Salem, along which most of Salem's
haunts occur. Some of this information has been revealed at her
website, Ghosts101.com and in her book about ley lines research techniques.
Pursuing unusual research leads and
methods, Ms. Broome's book promises to be a fascinating book. It will
cover ghosts and ghouls, pirates and Puritans and -- of course -- the
witches whose lives, deaths, curses and hauntings make Salem one of the
world's eeriest cities and top Halloween destinations.
The articles featured below represent a small portion of Fiona's unique research.
