REVIEW: ELAINE FRY

Perth-based "paranormal investigator" Barbara Parks shares her experiences of the spirit world, with the various manifestations of those departed souls which have been evident to her since early childhood.

She recounts events that have affected her and others she has come across over the years.

Explaining the difference between clairvoyants, clairaudients, mediums and psychics, she makes clear her gift is that of clairvoyance, the ability to see spirits, often as flashing lights that sometimes transform into identifiable figures.

She recounts her acquaintance with haunted houses in Perth streets and suburbs and also in Albany, where she has spent many family holidays.
