Her investigations have taken her to many famous locations in Buffalo and Tonawanda, including Elmlawn Cemetery, Old Fort Niagara, and the Buffalo Central Terminal.

Ms. Rease will talk about her latest book, Letters to Olivia II. She says, "When it comes to the supernatural, there are several unanswered questions. As a medium, I have had many paranormal experiences. In my work, I ask my Spirit Guides to step forward. These guides help me to channel spirits by allowing them to auto-write through me so that they may answer questions I have concerning several different topics. This book is broken up into three categories: Supernatural Phenomena, Myths & Legends and Paranormal Investigations."

She will have books to sell and will be available for a signing after the talk.
