Welcome to my website! I’m Richard Estep, author, paranormal investigator, and D-list TV personality. You might have seen me on TV’s Haunted Case Files (Paranormal Investigators in the UK) Haunted Hospitals, and Paranormal 911.
My love of all things ghostly began at a very young age, fed by staying in my grandparents’ haunted house in England and by a constant stream of binge reading at my local library (Syston Library, you’re the best!) I didn’t begin to actually investigate hauntings until the mid-nineties, but when I started, the bug bit me and hasn’t let go ever since. I took this passion with me when I moved to the United States in 1999, and finally formed the Boulder County Paranormal Research Society in 2006. It is still going strong today.
I started to write about my experiences in 2013, and now have a number of books that are either on the market or contracted to be released in the near future. I make my living as a paramedic and clinical educator for a private ambulance company. When I’m not doing that, I teach EMT and paramedic students at two different medical taining establishments, and occasionally give tours at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado.
In the tiny amount of free time that does not involve paranormal investigation and writing about it, I am an unabashed geek, with a particular bias towards all things Star Wars. I have a Lego problem that may eventually require professional counseling if it gets any further out of hand. Perhaps above all else, I am a collector and reader of books.
I live in Colorado with my wife and a menagerie of rescued cats and dogs.
