Journey through compelling chapters and meet 50 ghosts as Bloody Mary shares with readers her experiences with the ghosts and haunted happenings of New Orleans. Among the tales of the supernatural are:

  • A visit to a haunted sanitarium
  • A meeting with Julie the Ghost of Forbidden Love
  • The story of Madame La Laurie, La Vampyra
  • Meetings with Jean Lafitte, the Gentleman Pirate
  • Encounters with the ghosts in New Orleans graveyards

Each chapter ends with “Afterlife Lessons and Warnings” that help readers navigate the seen and the unseen worlds.

What makes these stories particularly engaging is Bloody Mary herself. She is not only a psychic investigator, she is also a psychic healer offering healing and kindness to spirits that walk the earth and also helping readers find spiritual lessons in encounters with the spirit world.

Bloody Mary runs 'Bloody Mary’s Tours' and lectures at Loyola and Tulane Universities. She has been featured on hundreds of television and radio broadcasts, both national and international, including the SyFy, BBC, CNN, The History Channel, and Ghost Adventurers. An 11th generation Creole New Orleanian, she is hell-bent on preserving the important mystical traditions and magical customs that are in danger of becoming extinct in her hometown.
