Paul Bannister

Biography:

Englishman Paul Bannister was a national newspaper reporter in Britain, where he worked for the Daily Mail, the Sun, and the BBC, among others. He was recruited by the National Enquirer, where he became senior reporter and the tabloid's top specialist in tales of the psychic, a post that took him to about 40 countries to interview all kinds of people, from a spirit healer in Iceland to a witch doctor in Brazil. On assignment, Bannister has been menaced by a ghost, shot at by a gunman, endangered by Michael Jackson, booted by Gidget, and spat on by a kangaroo.

Bannister lives in Oregon with his wife Jennie plus a 21 lbs Maine Coon cat, a 90 lbs Catahoula dog called Axel and an indeterminate mutt called Java who pretends to be deaf but can hear the fridge door open at 100 paces. His lifelong interests include rugby and bicycle racing. He authored 'Strange Happenings,' co-authored 'Money Signs' with astrologer Fredrick Davies and ‘Yesterday, Today and Forever’ with psychic Jeane Dixon. He also cooperated on the Globe book 'Juice, the OJ Simpson tragedy.' He is currently working on a new novel.
