Adam is a paranormal investigator, but not just any paranormal investigator. What makes him different? He’s in a wheelchair, but his condition didn’t slow him down, it just forced him to develop creative alternatives. Throughout his life, he never let anything stop him or prevent him from achieving his goals. Often considered a “rolling trigger object” he uses his unique position to his advantage when investigating. Adam has spoken at many conventions and events and hopes to continue raising awareness, and showing the world that anything is possible. He created and copyrighted a wheelchair bound ghost named Glider, who represents him and others with disabilities. Glider is a symbol that there are no limitations to those who truly believe. It’s how he rolls!'

Pat Bussard O'Keefe is a writer, photographer, psychic medium, and paranormal investigator. These artistic and psychic-oriented pursuits give her a unique and personal perspective on the paranormal. She travels regularly into the dark landscape of the supernatural to record and preserve stories of the otherworld through photographs and words (patbussard.com).

A former journalist, as well as an author, her published works have woven words between the covers and across the pages of magazines, books and newspapers. Her column HAUNTED AMERICA was a regular feature in GHOST VOICES MAGAZINE, the premier magazine in the U.K. focusing on ghosts and haunting activity. She also wrote a regular column for THE LOAFER, an arts and entertainment magazine. Her column titled WEIRD WORLD, focused on the people and issues impacting the world (or the otherworld) of the paranormal. She also wrote for HAUNTED TIMES MAGAZINE, where her column, THE EVIDENCE LOCKER, covered investigations at historic and interesting haunted locations across the country. These media outlets are in addition to a number of other magazines from around the world in which her work was featured.

In addition to her writing, Pat's photographs have appeared in and on the covers of a number of dark non-fiction, fiction, and literary magazines. Her most recent magazine photographs include photo spreads in HAUNTED AFTER DARK MAGAZINE and HAUNTED DIGITAL MAGAZINE. Her dark photography has also been featured on the covers of such diverse magazines as the prestigious literary magazine THE PEDESTAL and TWISTED DREAMS MAGAZINE. Her work has been described as, "catching the haunted soul of a location in a moment of transitioning shadow and light, forcing it to reveal its true image." She is currently working on a series of photos for author Ronda Caudill's book about the historic and haunted Nickerson Snead House in Glade Spring, Virginia.

In addition to photographing and writing for hundreds of nonfiction articles and stories published under her byline, she has also authored and illustrated two books with her photography. The latest of those books is The Ghosts of St. Albans Sanatorium. Her next book is a chapbook of poetry, Boneyard Voice: Poems and Photographs from the Edge of Darkness. The chapbook is slated for release later this year.

Pat is the co-founder of a team of paranormal investigators, The Descendants of Avalon and was the founder of The Ghost Writers. Part of the mission of the team is to record and preserve stories of paranormal importance.

Susan Swiatek

When Betty and Barney Hill's Interrupted Journey exploded onto the scene in 1966, Susan Swiatek was hooked on the UFO and abduction mystery. Even as a child, she sensed the serious nature of the story the Hillsput forth regarding their close encounter with a "flying saucer." She organized the 1999 MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) Symposium near Washington, DC which had 600+ attendees over two days. She has lectured widely and been interviewed on Coast to Coast. Sue holds an art degree and has created artwork for several book projects such as Richard Hall's The UFO Evidence–Part II and the Extraterrestrial Encyclopedia compiled by Ron Story. She was a consultant on Grassroots UFOs(by Michael Swords), as well as Delphos(by Ted Phillips and Jennie Zeidman), creating the cover for the Delphos project. Susan has served as the MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) Virginia State Director since 2001 and is active with the Fund for UFO Research. Her husband Rob serves as Secretary-Treasurer of the Fund and is on the business Board for MUFON.



Misty and Ashley Conner exploded onto the paranormal scene in 2010 as two of the founders of the Sisters of Salem (S.O.S) Society of Paranormal Research. Since then, this energetic sister duo has investigated notorious locations of haunted reputation across America. The sisters grew up fascinated by all aspects of the paranormal. Their grandmother often told them stories featuring ghostly characters. These haunting tales of phantom activity launched a curiosity of the supernatural that remains unabated today. This inquisitiveness coupled with their insatiable thirst for investigating haunted locations opened a door for them to develop their psychic abilities. Now when they investigate a site, they are able to connect directly with the energy of the souls trapped or traveling through the location. They always seek validation for their psychic insights. In addition to volunteering at a number of haunted locations, they have another outlet that connects them with others in the paranormal field, the Sisters Conner host a popular radio show, Paranormal Party. The show is a lighthearted, fun-filled hour designed to educate, enlighten, and entertain new comers, as well as, seasoned paranormal enthusiasts. The Party is a side-splitting, positive and sometimes risky side of anything paranormal! As their public profile has grown, they have been featured in books and magazines. Most recently in the book, “The Ghosts of St. Albans Sanatorium,” and in “Roanoke Magazine.” They are excited about their future in the paranormal field. Whatever that may be. The most recent endeavor the sisters have ventured into is reading tarot cards. They felt that the same intuition and gifts that were useful at ghost hunting could be used to help others. The tarot cards have called to the sisters from a young age to explore and harness their intuitive gifts into a way that is meant to help client’s own personal life journeys and ponderments.

Adam Bonnett


Allen Marston grew up in a small town in southern Virginia. His interest in the paranormal began as a young child after hearing stories that his parents told him of experiences that they had with sightings of UFO’s and Ghosts. He started reading everything he could get his hands on about all aspects of the paranormal, thanks to his mother. Little did he know that his little hobby that he had would flourish into the love for the field that he has now.  Allen is co-founder of Apocalyptic Paranormal Investigation and Research based out of historic Appomattox, Virginia. He was a board of director, as well as a senior representative for the National Paranormal Society until 2016, when he left to focus on some personal theories and endeavors. Allen has been a guest on a few paranormal podcasts but enjoys spending time with friends on an up and coming podcast known as The Paranormal Sideshowthe most

Allen is a professional firefighter, fire inspector, Hazardous Materials Specialist, and a certified Class “A” contractor. He uses the skills that he has learned in these fields to look at possibilities that many may have missed or not thought of. He tries to eliminate all real possibilities before even beginning to turn to the paranormal possibility, even though he knows there are things that may never be explained.
