Dana & Greg Newkirk’s Work Featured in Best-Selling Book “Life with the Afterlife” by Amy Bruni
As the Host and Executive Producer of Travel Channel’s hit series Kindred Spirits, the CEO of Strange Escapes, and a beloved alumni of SyFy’s Ghost Hunters, Amy Bruni knows a thing or two about ghosts. Now the professional paranormal investigator has distilled her knowledge into a best-selling book titled Life with the Afterlife: 13 Truths I’ve Learned About Ghosts, in which the founders of the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult are heavily featured.
The book, co-written with Julie Tremaine, details Bruni’s lifelong dealings with the supernatural, from the earliest days of Ghost Hunters to the beginnings of her boutique paranormal travel company, but one of the nicest surprises in the best-seller are the in-depth looks at how her colleagues shaped the way she investigates the unexplained. Featured quite heavily in several chapters of Life with the Afterlife are are museum founders Dana & Greg Newkirk, who discuss everything from caring for haunted objects, incorporating parapsychological tools like the God Helmet into their paranormal research, and what went into their planning for the world’s first interactive magick ritual on live television.
From the book’s official description:
Amy Bruni, co-star of Kindred Spirits and one of the world’s leading paranormal investigators, has learned a lot about ghosts over her years of research and first-hand experience. Now, in Life with the Afterlife, she shares the insight she has gleaned and how it has shaped her unique approach to interacting with the spirits of the dead and those who encounter them.
From her earliest supernatural encounters as a child, through her years appearing on Ghost Hunters and the creation of her company Strange Escapes, which offers paranormal excursions to some of America’s most notoriously haunted destinations, and into her current work on The Travel Channel’s Kindred Spirits, this book is full of astonishing and deeply moving stories of Amy’s efforts to better understand the dead but not yet departed. With Amy’s bright humor and fierce compassion for both those who are haunted and those who are haunting, Life with the Afterlife is an eye-opening look at what connects us as people, in life and beyond.
