Publisher's Summary

This inspirational memoir, told with uncensored Southern wit and guidance, recounts the story of a Hollywood film executive who journeys through the cosmic wilderness and, against all odds, discovers psychic superpowers that radically transform her life. 

As a senior executive at one of the world’s largest movie studios, Julie Rieger spent her days marketing the imaginary stories of ghosts, faeries, superheroes, aliens, and more fantastical creatures. But after the devastating loss of her mother, the world of make-believe became reality when Julie captured her first ghost in a photograph and blew open a door to the Other Side.

The Ghost Photographer chronicles Julie’s wild ride down the spiritual rabbit hole. After a series of unexpected, mind-blowing, and sometimes frightening encounters with the spirit realm, Julie was forced to face this strange awakening, flying in the face of scientific dogma and her own die-hard skepticism. Ultimately, she discovered that what she thought she had lost with the death of her mother - unconditional love - was in fact the greatest superpower one can wield.

In a refreshing departure from traditional supernatural tales, Julie tells her story with bold humor and total candor. Her journey juxtaposes her down-home roots in rural America with the glam of Hollywood and her professional universe of hard, empirical data. As she fine-tunes her psychic abilities and comes to terms with the transformative power of grief, Julie is empowered to fearlessly tell her story, teach others, and invite them to share their own experiences of the paranormal and unexplained. She offers insights into our relationship with the spirit world, prayers and rituals for cleansing and protecting our homes from unwanted ghosts, and guidance on how to develop our intuition and sixth sense. 

 PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

As one Photographer to another

I purchased Ghost Photographer a few days ago, via Audible.com, and I'm happy to say that this is my second time listening to it through.

Definitely a book you should add to your private library collection!

Julie has written a comprehensive book on the nature of the Paranormal, and our relationship with it. The Unseen, the fantastical, and sometimes even the spiritually malevolent. Julie guides you on her journey and experiences with the unknown, and how she came to forging her understanding and mastery of it. This book is one part biography, and one part practical guide. Whether it's photography or personal experience, her words are truly a service to us all.

To the writer: I too have had loved ones like Mona in my life. I'm very lucky enough to have found teachers among them. Thank you for writing this book and making me, and of us all us, feel that we're not alone, or crazy. To you, my teacher, thank you. A'ho.

Inspiring

I loved it. I loved the insight of her life's story. I binged every second I had. never have I finished a book so quickly. I loved the tone in her voice and am happy Julie narrated herself. I'm looking forward to more stories!

Loved it!

Did not want it to end! First review I have ever written because I desperately want a sequel! Loved Julie’s no bullshit voice and sense of humor. Not easy to find in this type of book. Loved the way she spoke about grounding herself and spirituality in a very real way. I have never seen spirits but had a similar experience of a voice saving me from an accident. It was almost exactly like Julie’s story. It was exciting to hear her story and validate my own. Thank you Julie!

Love it

I love it and I learned a few things that I didn't know. I don't want to give anything away so you will have to just take my word on it.

Loved this! Finished in 24 hours

I discovered Julie on her podcast Insiders Guide to the other Side. I loved the podcast so wanted to “read” her book. I loved that she read the book too. Once you start, you won’t be able to stop until you’re done. And like the other reviewers, I too want more stories.

Thank you for the incredible gift of a book. We used to have a Ron in our house too (even our guests noticed him) and someone showed us how to take control and get him to leave. We haven’t seen him since.

I love it when an author reads their own book. Great to listen to. I could not stop listening. Intriguing content, great humor! I highly recommend this book.

Eye Opening

First book purchased thanks to Mysterious Universe podcast (perhaps that means something in regards to the direction of my personal journey). Story was crazy enough to be entertaining but believable at the same time. The humor was great, it offset the emotional moments that really hit hard. The order in which the topics were presented worked well, easy to see how gifts/skills progressed. How To/Safety section, great idea! Author's experience makes us reexamine those "wait a minute" moments in our life we dismiss on a daily basis and stay open to the possibility of "signs." Loved it!

A Fascinating

This was the first book I tried through Audible and I could not have selected a better book! Julie’s voice (both calming and stern)-as she reads her book, really brings this book to life. She has opened my mind to a fascinating world. Thank you for sharing your story Julie Rieger !

Wow, standing ovation Julie!

This was an inspirational experience that goes way beyond ghost photography. I listened to it on Audible and had the luxury of hearing Julie's voice take me through her incredible journey of self discovery. I found myself replaying chapters over and over again because of her amazing words. Thank you Julie, there's so much in this book that hits home for me.

RAW & Down to earth truth of the unknown!

The title may throw you off as it did me, because It goes WAY deeper than a ghost photographer. AMAZING story of Julie's life will make you NOT want to "put this book down". She is raw & southern. I am form Texas so I LOVE it. Way to go Ms. Julie! I would love to see more books of your experiences. Myself, having slight psychic "powers", would love to be trained to harness my gifts. Seems you learned from the right people to guided you in the path of light. If you are ever in Houston,(Sugar Land) Look me up! ---- Want a great book about ghost, spirits, loved ones, animals, spirit guides??? Buy this book! The audio reading is fantastic. - Keith Marrero
