The Black Tapes
Dr. Emily Dumont
Dr. Emily Dumont is the author of a bestselling book on the subject of location hauntings, and teaches religious studies at the University of Illinois in Urbana. Alex describes her as “stout, with short bangs and a Ramones t shirt. Her huge brown eyes are filled with the sparkle of a much younger woman.” She keeps scrapbooks and photo albums of past investigations in her office which include apparitions, serial hauntings, poltergeists, water spirits, shadows and shades, possessions, and “a few collections of Chemtrail evidence”. There’s a section devoted to demonic occurrences, which she’s broken into Sumerian, Babylonian, Lovecraftian, and “Christian and more traditional demonics”. She’s written 17 books, including ‘Field Guide to the Paranormal’, ‘Ghost Hunting for Dummies’, ‘Monsters and Magic’, ‘A Guide to Ethereal Beings’, and ’Past Lives and Your Wedding’. She is also the co-author of four additional books, and has written ‘some fiction’, which she describes as “fifty shades of gray but darker, and more literary”. She says she is a medium by profession but claims to experience some ‘light clairvoyance’.
