A Gang of Girls Radio - Nicole Strickland

I was raised in California. My Mother is a big fan of history and I inherited that from her. As a child we travelled around checking out historical places. We lived in San Diego, California for several years and we went around checking out some of the places we will be talking about tonight on A Gang of Girls Radio with Nicole Strickland, Paranormal researcher, author.  

We will also be hearing about the RMS Queen Mary in Long Beach. What are the mysteries there? Why are we so attracted to this Queen of the Seas? Could it be that we love the idea of luxury of days past? Are we drawn to the war she assisted in? 

History is a big part of any paranormal investigation It gives us insight into how and why the places we visit are haunted and why some of the spirits stay on this plane. 

Let's find out what Nicole Strickland has to say about California and its haunted places!    

Join us tonight for A Gang of Girls Radio -

See you tonight!
