Fiona Broome's book, The Ghosts of Salem, Massachusetts, is nearly completed. 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.
After a brief hiatus in 2010, Fiona has resumed her research and writing. Her goal is to present a unique book with
Salem's classic "ghost stories" as well as the facts behind them. Fiona's research has led to her discovery of an
energy line she's called "the Judges' Line" in Salem, along which most of Salem's haunts occur.
Pursuing unusual research leads and methods, Ms. Broome's book promises to be a fascinating book of 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 that will appear in her upcoming books.
