In this episode of Paranormal Underground Radio, we talk with Loyd Auerbach, director of the Office of Paranormal Investigations. Loyd was appointed to the faculty of Atlantic University of Virginia Beach, VA, in late 2010, where he’s involved in developing online Parapsychology-related courses, as well as teaching an existing Parapsychology course. He was recently elected President of the Forever Family Foundation (for 2013 & 2014), an organization supporting research on Life After Death and the work of spirit mediums in the grieving process, after serving on their Scientific Advisory Board. He is the co-author, with the late renowned psychic Annette Martin, of The Ghost Detectives’ Guide to Haunted San Francisco (Craven Street Books/Linden Publishing, April 1, 2011).

He is the author of A PARANORMAL CASEBOOK: Ghost Hunting in the New Millennium (Atriad Press, 2005). His 2004 releases were GHOST HUNTING: How to Investigate the Paranormal and HAUNTINGS & POLTERGEISTS: A Ghost Hunter’s Guide (Ronin Publishing). His first book, ESP, HAUNTINGS AND POLTERGEISTS: A Parapsychologist’s Handbook (1986, Warner Books) was named the “Sacred Text”` on ghosts by NEWSWEEK (in August, 1996). PSYCHIC DREAMING (1991, Warner Books; 1999 Barnes & Noble Books), deals with the current understanding of dreams in general and psychic dreams in particular.  His third book, REINCARNATION, CHANNELING AND POSSESSION, was published by Warner Books in April, 1993. MIND OVER MATTER (Kensington Books, 1996) focused on the limits human beings set for themselves and on psychokinesis. In 1999, he released the first video on “The Haunting of the USS Hornet” (a haunted WWII era aircraft carrier in Alameda,CA). REINCARNATION, CHANNELING AND POSSESSION: A Parapsychologist’s Handbook is now available again from Kindle and Nook.

Very soon, another book will have him jump genres to Chocolate (just call him the “Chocolate Maven”). Look for Haunted by Chocolate: How to Go from Chocoholic to Chocolate Gourmet in 2013. In 2009, he finished a Professional Chocolatier course and began selling his own unique chocolate products (“Ghost Drops”) in late 2010. Visit for information about the book, chocolate tasting sessions, and to purchase the chocolates he now produces himself.

He serves on the Board of Directors for the Rhine Research Center in Durham, NC, and the Advisory Boards of the Rhine and the Windbridge Institute in Tucson, AZ. Early 2013 has him also teaching online for the Rhine Education Center.
