Melissa’s interest in the topics of the strange began at a young age and was influenced by the east coast culture of Canada. She lived in a province that was rife with folkloric traditions from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales so was always surrounded by traditions of a spooky nature. Her belief in something solidly paranormal was reinforced at the age of 6., with the experience of living in a Victorian house that was dubiously haunted. As an adult Melissa became involved professionally in the field of paranormal, Forteana and magic when she co-founded a magazine with The Curious Fortean groups founder Matt Cook. She continued on from that to get involved in folklore research when she helped found the podcast, The Folklore Podcast. She learned a mass of information putting together eZines (she’s a graphic designer) for the patrons and this lead her directly to reinstating her interest in magic and traditional witchcraft. Currently Melissa hosts her own podcast, Drawing Out The Spirits with co-host and pro illustrator John Chadwick. They talk about topics that range all over the spectrum, but tend to focus ond many routes of magic, history, psychic experience and of course, ghostly folklore. If you tune into the YouTube channel you can often see John illustrating on the guests topic!
