She has worked full-time in the field since 1983.

Rosemary has done ground-breaking research on Shadow People and the Djinn, entities who are involved in different kinds of paranormal encounters and problems. She investigates and consults in cases of “persistent negative hauntings,” in which individuals are under apparent attack by supernatural forces.

She serves on the board of directors of the Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters (FREE), a scientific organization to educate, support and research the field of ET and entity contact and abduction experiences.

She has regular radio features on “Exploring Unexplained Phenomena” with Scott Colborn, and “The Conspiracy Show” with Richard Syrett. She is a frequent guest with George Noory on “Coast to Coast AM,” with whom she co-authored Talking to the Dead, about emerging technology for communicating with the dead and other beings. She is featured in documentaries and docu-dramas on the History, A&E, SyFy, Discovery, Animal Planet, Destination America, and Travel channels. She is a popular speaker at conferences, colleges, and universities.

Rosemary is a consulting editor of FATE magazine, and a board director of the National Museum of Mysteries and Research, a nonprofit educational organization in Columbia, Pennsylvania. She has served as visiting faculty for the International Institute for Integral Human Sciences in Montreal. Previously, she was a past board member of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, and the Academy for Spiritual and Consciousness Studies. She lives in Connecticut.

A personal statement from Rosemary:

Like many people, my interest in the paranormal began in childhood, inspired by experiences, extraordinary dreams, an intense interest in astronomy, and a voracious reading of nonfiction and fiction related to the paranormal, occult, science fiction and fantasy.  My interests were always wide-ranging, and that continues to characterize my research and work today.  All things in the paranormal and metaphysical realms are interconnected.  My research includes history, mythology, folklore, religion, occult traditions, psychology, parapsychology, science, medicine, anthropology, and archaeology, as well as anecdotal experience.

My work is oriented around the how and why of our extraordinary experiences.  It was clear to me early in life that the paranormal and the unseen realms are real, and that human beings have encounters and experiences that have been documented since ancient times.  Our experiences form patterns throughout history that reveal our constant interaction with dimensions of the afterlife, spirit, the Divine, and a wide range of beings.

I examine both the light and dark sides of our experiences, from the mystical and angelic to the invasive, demonic, and problematic. To know one side, you must also know the other.
