Author Biography

Hi, I'm John Russell. I've been an internationally known professional psychic and medium for 50 years. As a paranormal investigator I've experienced over 1,000 physical supernatural manifestations. I have provided psychic readings for clients in over 40 countries. For over 15 years I've also been a featured guest on many popular radio shows and podcasts, including Coast to Coast AM with George Noory, and I filmed a TV pilot for The History Channel in which I psychically explored the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. And I've been an avid motorcyclist for over 50 years.

Now, as the award-winning, best-selling author of the nonfiction book Riding with Ghosts, Angels, and the Spirits of the Dead, I'll bring you along with me on a magical ride as I travel thousands of miles off the beaten path to explore the paranormal from the seat of a motorcycle. Imagine if everywhere you roamed ghosts, angels, and the spirits of the dead came to greet you, communicating intriguing messages to you and providing you with an incredible array of otherworldly manifestations.

You don't have to be interested in motorcycles to delight in these stories. And, these thought-provoking recollections of true experiences offer inspiration and entertainment for believers and non-believers alike: You don't need to believe in ghosts to enjoy a good ghost story.

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Riding with Ghosts, Angels, and the Spirits of the Dead is a work of non-fiction in the spiritual, supernatural, and life experience sub-genres, and was penned by author John Russell. An extraordinary and intriguing work, the book explains the pursuits of the author in relation to his psychic and paranormal talents and is written for adult audiences owing to the use of some explicit language on occasion. Working as a professional psychic, we journey with Russell on his motorbike as he rides from tale to tale, offering historical and contemporary paranormal experiences or, as the author himself puts it, some really entertaining ghost stories which also happen to be true.

Whether you fully believe in paranormal phenomena or not, author John Russell delivers a superbly well-penned and highly engaging collection of tales to enjoy. The series of stories and essays are all episodic in nature, meaning that you can turn to any story in any order and really enjoy it as a capsule of intrigue, humor, darkness, and discovery. What won me over time and again was the spirit of the author himself, whose nature is easy-going and enthusiastic in his pursuit and depiction of his many different experiences. This makes the book a true winner on every page for its writing style alone. Overall, I would highly recommend Riding with Ghosts, Angels, and the Spirits of the Dead to all readers who enjoy exploring the true-life paranormal experiences of others and take an interest in the psychic profession.

"Well written! Easy reading. Fascinating lessons—listen to your intuition and lots of adventures are awaiting you." Phyllis Galde, Publisher, FATE Magazine.

Jim Mullen

"I've written and produced for several paranormal TV shows, so I've come across all stripe of psychics and ghost hunters. The difference with this book is that it's not just a bunch of stories about a random spirit or the bogeyman. John connects the dots between what's happening on the Other Side, and on this mortal coil. He recognizes there is a point where the two connect and is deft in explaining the hows and whys to us all, through insightful, poignant, wise and engaging stories.
"Riding with Ghosts will help you understand there is no such thing as coincidence, but plenty of eye-opening evidence of connections. I highly recommend it." — Jim Mullen, multi-award-winning television producer/editor/writer (Jim was my producer for my TV pilot for The History Channel)

Martha Lawrence

"John Russell—a biker who happens to be a gifted psychic—takes readers on a thrilling ride off the beaten path in this new motorcycle memoir. Fascinating and well written, these thought-provoking recollections of true experiences offer inspiration and entertainment for believers and non-believers alike." — Martha Lawrence, internationally known award winning author of Pisces Rising; coauthor of Trust Works!; Executive Editor, The Ken Blanchard Companies

Adrian Calabrese

"In his book, Riding with Ghosts, Angels and the Spirits of the Dead, John Russell takes us on many road trips that are exciting, adventurous, entertaining, and often, scary. When he and his beloved motorcycle, 'Melissa,' hit the pavement, nothing short of extraordinary happens. Having experienced over 800 supernatural occurrences along the highways and byways of America, he shares his amazing adventures with us. Sprinkled with humor and quite a bit of philosophy, the book takes us along with John, to places we might not have dreamed of visiting, and opens up a world of new understanding.
"It's hard to be a naysayer after reading this book, because the author gives us no reason to doubt his experiences. From strange clouds that seem to only hover over just his bike, and no one else's, to owls and Indian spirits guiding his path, each story begs us to continue to read another, and another.
"From beginning to end, Riding with Ghosts..., is fun, enlightening and informative. The sage in John Russell shows himself, as he gently shares his views of not only his experiences, but the world and its people. It is an interesting read, and one which you will not soon forget." — Adrian Calabrese, Ph.D., author of How to Get Everything You Ever Wanted; 10 Spiritual Steps to a Magical Life; Sacred Signs


"Fascinating and engrossing; well written, entertaining, and thought-provoking. This delightful paranormal read will keep you turning the pages until the very end, at which time you will be asking for more." — Jeanne S., The Alaskan Gypsy

"I heard him on Coast 2 Coast. Was first intrigued about him being a biker, as I was. The paranormal, is 'normal' for me, and I love hearing other stories. I couldn't set the book down; An easy read, amazing encounters with the other side. LOVE this book!"

B. Mortensen

"I’ve known John for many years and I thought I had heard all of his stories. This book is proof that John still has more to offer—there were stories here I hadn’t heard yet. I love his transparency, humor and method of explaining things. It makes the stories both entertaining and informative. It’s a quick and easy read. My only complaint is I want more! If you enjoy witty and fun stories of the paranormal, you’ll enjoy this book."
