Kathleen (Kat) Tedsen and
Beverlee (Bev) Rydel
Authors, Paranormal Researchers & Investigators,
Professional Public Speakers

bk_GazegoIn 2006, the two sisters began their journey in the paranormal. Since then, they've traveled 10's of thousands of miles around the state in search of Michigan's most haunted locations. Beginning as skeptics, what they have personally witnessed and recorded challenged their beliefs.

Before their paranormal adventures began, Kat and Bev had professional positions completely unrelated to their current endeavors.

Before beginning TR Desktop Publishing in 1991, Kat (pictured left) had over 15 years' experience in writing, media production, training and management. She directed media programs for Fortune 500 clients, including General Motors Corporation, Ford Motor Company, Harley Davidson and Kelly Services.

Bev (pictured right) was a human resource professional carrying over 20 years' in management, training and public speaking. During that period, she has served in a senior management capacity for major financial institutions.

Their first joint writing/book series was the "Michigan Vacation Guide". This book series gained recognition by the State of Michigan and was placed on the Secretary of State's "Read Michigan" list in 1995.


THE HAUNTED TRAVELS OF MICHIGAN BOOK SERIES
WITH INTERACTIVE WEBSITE

It was during their travels while writing the Michigan Vacation Guide book series, Kat and Bev met reputable people who described paranormal experiences so powerful it made them true believers in ghosts and demons. These individuals recounted fascinating stories and identified locations they sincerely believed to be haunted. Were they simply eerie ghost stories, urban legends, folklore or fact? That is what motivated Kat and Bev to begin their "Haunted Travels" book series. They wanted to go beyond the myth and legend to the truth behind reports of hauntings.

katinvestSince 2006, Kat and Bev have completed several hundred investigations that include investigations into some of Michigan's unsolved murders, disasters, criminals activity, and well-known people in American history. The site of their investigations take them to historic restaurants, hotels, bed and breakasts, prisons, remote lighthouses, and historical sites all with a strong reputation of paranormal activity.

Each investigation is approached with a skeptics eye. When possible, they will use outside specialists to objectively look at and and assess suspect evidence. All in anbevinvest effort to remove the myth and storytelling associated with ghosts and hauntings to find the real truth.

IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT THE HAUNTING ... BUT THE HISTORY THAT CREATES THE HAUNTING.

For Kat and Bev, it's not just about the haunting but the history that creates the haunting. For each story, Kat and Bev will spend weeks and sometimes months researching the history of each location. If paranormal evidence can be connected to actual historical events, it reinforces/validates the haunting.

sectrmEACH STORY IS WEB INTERACTIVE

Though their books stand on their own, to give the reader a full three-dimensional experience, each story is web interactive. In the password protected "Secret Room" of this website (www.hauntedtravelsmi.com) the reader will have access to behind-the-scene photographs, hear audio and see video evidence collected and described in the story.

Kat and Bev started out as skeptics. What they have learned is that there is something out there that can't be explained. Some things that defy logical explanation ... something paranormal.

Read the Story ... See the Evidence ... Decide for Yourself!
