Deborah Collard, who is Cherokee by blood, enjoys reaching back into the past to connect her with the spiritual world. The way she celebrates this passion is through her studies of the paranormal. Deborah considers herself an 'oldie' in this venue, knowing that thirty years ago the only tools she used to investigate with were her flashlight and whomever she could drag along with her to see if she could find answers to the many questions that wandered through her mind.
As technology progressed so did she and many years later has a very solid team of paranormal investigators. The team is NAPS - North-Eastern Alabama Paranormal Society. NAPS was officially formed and being sought out to do investigations in 2004. Deborah teaches workshops, does lectures and panels on the paranormal. It is important to her that ghost hunters know just what they are doing and the way to do it!
Deborah has two published books to her credit. These books are the beginning of a ten book series. They are: "Haunted Southern Nights Vol. 1 Ghost Hunting, The Basics+ and "Haunted Southern Nights, The Haunted Backyard."
Deborah who is also a Registered Nurse has continued her studies in the paranormal by completing post secondary education offered by the HCH Institue under the direction of Prof. Loyd Auerbach to receive her certification in Parapsychological Studies. For the past several years Deborah has trained many paranormal investigators and continues to lecture and panel in her region on the paranormal. She also assists families and law enforcement agencies with cold cases using her psychic abilities primarily via remote viewing. Deborah is an active member of the Parapsychological Association. Deborah is also a Tribal member of the United Cherokee Ani-Yun-Wiya Nation.
Deborah hosts NAPS Live Radio "Haunted Southern Nights" on Tuesday nights on Blogtalk Radio and she looks forward to each show. She seems to never meet a stranger or a ghost she can't be friends with.
