International Writers Magazine:Lifestyles
with Nancy Bradley - Legendary Psychic to the Stars!
Interviewed by: Paul Dale Roberts
us something personal about yourself, your family life, schools
you went to and more...
NB: I am originally from New York, born and raised there until the
age of 13 when we moved to So. California. I have 2 children, Bob
and Robin, my son was a pilot, now runs his own company, and my
daughter Robin is a singer and runs my office (CELEBRITIES PSYCHIC/LIFE
COACH/TEACHER/HEALER NANCY BRADLEY). I went to school in N.Y. and
So. Calif. I am the author of over 3000 articles printed in national
publications including Good Housekeeping, California Highway
Patrol, Fate, many others. I have been written about in many
publications as well, including a 6 page spread in the Sacramento
Question: Nancy, when did you first become aware you were a psychic?
NB: I have been psychic since I was a child. My father was a certified
genius and believe in me and never took the gift away. If I told his professors
something, he would say "If my kid sees it, she sees it!" I
was right 9 times out of 10, and that wonderful beginning gave me the
confidence to continue to use my gift to this day. Everyone is born psychic
so when you hear some obscure psychic say, "I was born psychic",
well, whoop-de-do, everyone is. It is just that some of us have made the
decision to make it a life work. This can only be accomplished if it begins
at childhood and was not taken away, as being psychic is a lifetime quest
Question: How did you become a psychic consultant for various movie stars?
NB:My partner and I were adagio dancers in Las Vegas and I met a lot of
stars. Many became friends, and I was doing a lot of Readings for them.
From there I knew my real calling was in helping people with their problems
and communicating with their deceased loved ones (and those that just
hang around with things to say). So, I went back home and did psychic
work and wrote books. I landed in the gold rush country after writing
GOLD RUSH GHOSTS book #1. Spirit told me I had to move here because people
were in real need of real psychic knowledge. I opened my practice here,
and a classroom for teaching others to use their psychic gifts to their
Question: Before you were a psychic to the stars, weren't you also a professional
dancer and appeared in a few movies? Can you tell us about that?
NB:Yes, I answered that above, I was in The Bible, El Cid, others,
mostly bit parts as acting was not my main calling. I was offered contracts,
and won a few beauty contests, but it always came back to ghosts and spirits
and being a part of that world.
Question: I know you have had many paranormal experiences, but can you
brief us on a few extraordinary ones?
NB: I told you about Vincent Gaddis (internationally acclaimed author
and writer, who coined the phrase BERMUDA TRIANGLE and wrote the book
Invisible Horizons). Another encounter would be when I was in 4th grade.
In order to get to and from school, my girlfriend and I would walk through
a farm. One dreary raining day we were walking home from school and unknown
to us, there was a man following us. As it turned out, he was a convicted
pedophile, and we were to be his next victims. A caretaker at the school
saw him jutting in and out of the bushes, and called the police. They
nabbed him before my friend and I were aware he was there. The pedophile
told the police it was the "tall muscular man with the mustache that
came out of nowhere and was walking with the girls that ran me into the
arms of the cops. He scarred the hell out of me. Where did he come from?"
Well, there was no man that we saw, but later this entity came to me and
addressed himself as a great grandfather that was watching out for us.
Question: Can you tell us about your unique office, called the Enchanted
or is that the Enchanted Cabin? (I have been to her office
and I must say it's extraordinary, but let's have Nancy talk about it
3922 Forni Road in Placerville.
NB: ENCHANTED COTTAGE is what it is called, because it is the most haunted
building in all of Placerville, a town which is mighty haunted itself.
Placerville, once called "old hangtown" averaged 2 hangings
a day for several years in the 1800's. More hangings happened here than
any other place in the U.S. during the gold rush. Placerville is considered
the second most haunted place in the U.S., second only to the fields of
the Civil War. It is considered more haunted than New England, and even
Ireland, known for it's ghosts. People come from near and far to hopefully
see a ghost or spirit in Placerville. Forni Road has been a historical
Road for many years, dating back to that long ago time. The ghosts and
spirits abound, not only in this cottage, but all along the road. It was
also the only route to the toll bridge that took you from Placerville
to Diamond Springs.
Question: Can you brief us about an upcoming DVD called 'Ghost Girls"?
NB: Absolutely. GHOST GIRLS is a concept developed for national television
and also for sale as DVD to people interested in the antics of the worlds
best two female ghost busters. We are currently investigating a haunted
cemetery and my haunted office. Soon to be released will be the DVD of
my book INCREDIBLE WORLD OF GOLD RUSH GHOSTS with myself, Shannon McCabe,
and Paul Dale Roberts.
Question: Tell us about your husband, that has his own ghost hunting group?
What has been some of his experiences in ghost hunting? What is his website?
We do not take groups around to haunted places, we do investigations
on request all over the country. We maintain over 1,000,000 worth of the
latest paranormal equipment to identify what is around, and then I go
in and identify the spirits by name and ask what they want (if anything).
If a site is really haunted, we provide a Certificate of the truly haunted
to them to place on their wall.
Question: Can you tell us about some of the famous people you have met?
NB: Sure, there are a lot. Milton Berle and Merv Griffin (darlings!).
A few others I really care (d) about: Sammy Davis, Juliette Prouse, Doug
McClure, Lee Marvin, Ava Gabor, Marilyn Monroe, Steve McQueen, many others.
Question: Have you ever worked with the police on any unsolved cases?
NB: Many. However, I will not get involved on murder, missing or unsolved
cases unless the police, sheriff, or FBI personally ask me, and I am the
only psychic on the case. I there are a bunch of weird psychic types they
just muddy the water and make a maze of garbage that I have to go through
to get to the truth. These cases are confidential of course, as is my
celebrity and all my client list.
Question: Did you know that Uri Geller - Psychic/Spoonbender had his own
Marvel comic book at one time? If Marvel Comics were to make a comic book
about you, how would you like to be represented?
NB: I would want to be represented as I really am, a Paranormal Investigative
Reporter who always goes through all barriers to get to an entity in need
of clarity, be it they are angry and have an ax to grind and I will try
and help them solve the problem, whether they need to talk to a loved
one and warn them, why they feel they must stay in a cemetery or basement
or other places, why they are doing disruptive things, etc. ALL spirits
have a story to tell, I get to the bottom of their stories. I solve their
problems. Sometimes this takes sneaking through windows, breaking into
cemeteries locked gates at night, and going where other paranormal investigators
refuse to go. Nothing stops NANCY BRADLEY.
Question: What books do you have in the market? Can you brief us about
NB: Yes, there are currently 3 on the market. The fourth printing of THE
INCREDIBLE WORLD OF GOLD RUSH GHOSTS, THE WORLD ACCORDING TO NANCY (considered
the foremost book on psychic development on the market), and BIZARRE AND
GHOSTLY CAMPFIRE TALES.
Question: What TV shows have you done in the past and present?
NB: TRAVEL CHANNEL HAUNTED HOTEL SERIES, DISCOVER CHANNEL, GOOD DAY SARAMENTO
#31 (standard gig 2nd Friday morning of each month, ) many more.
Question: What conventions will you be attending or have attended?
NB: I speak before many groups, I am on the talk circuit and travel around
the country talking about ghosts,spirits,paranormal work, answering psychic
questions for the audience, and doing past life regressions. Of most interest,
last year I was the featured guest speaker for the first annual Northern
California Paranormal Investigators Conference, and will be a guest speaker
again this year for the convention held in May at the Brookdale Lodge
in Brookdale, CA.
Question: How can someone contact you?
NB: Through my office for a Reading at (530) 622-0977. All information
is on my WEB at: WWW.NANCYBRADLEY.ORG
Or come to my Friday night psychic class, held at 3922 Forni Road in Placerville,
7:00 pm. I am happy to address peoples personal questions there as well.
Question: What are your hobbies and recreational activities?
NB: Dancing, visiting with friends, many of which range back to my grade
and high school years.
Question: If you can have 6 dinner guests, 3 fictional and 3 real-life
from any time period, who would those 6 people be and why?
NB: Betty Boop, Einstein, Bob Fosse, Jacqueline Kennedy, Spiderman and
Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean. Now THAT would be
Question: If you could go into any time machine, what year would you stop
at and tell us why.
NB: The 1940's America. Seems like a simple time.
Question: What TV shows, movies, cartoons do you like?
NB:The old WIll and Grace (mostly Karen and Jack), Summer of 42, Pirates
of the Caribbean, The Birdcage, and the Road Runner.
Question: What books do you enjoy?
NB: All especially biography and mystery, unexplained, as I take it upon
myself to find the explanation. Stephen King and James Patterson are great
writers and keep me interested.
Question: What gives you your creative energy?
NB: Being around animals and nature. Also being around other creative
people, dancers, singers, artists.
Question: If the story of Nancy Bradley became a movie, who would you?
NB: Are you asking who would play me? I WOULD! Or Sandra Bullock. She
would need to pad that bra of hers however to fit the part.
Question: This ends the interview, any encouraging words of wisdom?
NB: Never be afraid of anything, and always say your piece. Never be a
professional victim, figure your problems out, shut-up, and get up and
get going. Be a doer, a leader, not a follower. Work should not be a JOB
it should be an extension of your life. What I do is not work, it IS my
life. If you are working 9 to 5 and you hate it, STOP! QUIT! Figure out
who you are and what you want to do with your life so you can get on your
REAL path to greatness. And then, do not be selfish with your success,
share it with others.
