Richard Estep has been a paranormal investigator for the past twenty years, and is currently director of the Boulder County Paranormal Research Society. His latest book is The World's Most Haunted Hospitals: True-Life Paranormal Encounters in Asylums, Hospitals and Institutions. He makes a living as a paramedic chief, clinical educator, and teacher in several EMT and paramedic training programs. When not working or investigating claims of the paranormal, Richard can either be found serving as a volunteer firefighter-paramedic, adding to his vast collection of Star Wars memorabilia and Lego, or working on his next book. He is the author of several books on the subject of ghosts and hauntings, and the “Wellington Undead” series of novels. He lives with his wife Laura in northern Colorado, along with a dog and more rescue cats than their homeowners association would like.
