Historian, author, and parapsychology enthusiast, Ursula Bielski has been writing and lecturing about Chicago's supernatural folklore and the paranormal for more than 16 years. A recognized authority on the Chicago region's ghost lore and cemetery history, she is the author of four popular and critically acclaimed books on the same subjects, all published by Lake Claremont Press.
Ursula's interests in ghost hunting began at a young age. She grew up in a haunted house on Chicago's north side and received an early education in Chicago history from her father, a Chicago police officer. Since that time she has been involved in numerous investigations of haunted sites in and around Chicago, including such notorious locales as Wrigley Field; the Red Lion Pub, Bachelors Grove Cemetery, and the Oshkosh, WI, Opera House.
