I have always been fascinated by ghosts stories, things that go bump in the night and the unexplained. I’m so excited about the guests Make Contact has lined up for October! All month the show will feature guests in the paranormal field. Kicking off this week will be Author and Paranormal Investigator Mike Ricksecker, Deadly Heirs, Ghosts and Legends of Oklahoma, & Ghosts of Maryland. Don’t miss it!

More about this week’s guest, Mike Ricksecker:
Mike Ricksecker is the author of Deadly Heirs, a Chase Michael DeBarlo mystery novel, Ghosts of Maryland, and Ghosts and Legends of Oklahoma. He has appeared on Animal Planet’s The Haunted television show, is currently a paranormal investigator and “ghostorian” with Society of the Haunted, and regularly speaks about the paranormal and writing.
The son of a tool and die maker, Mike spent ten years growing up in western Massachusetts and began writing detective fiction as far back as the second grade. He carried his passion of writing with him back to Ohio, the state of his birth, where he created a myriad of short stories, novellas, and song lyrics. The character, Chase Michael DeBarlo, was also seen in print for the first time during this period.
After a 6-year stint in the U.S. Air Force that bounced him between Texas, Mississippi, Alaska, and Maryland, Mike resumed his detective fiction by beginning to create an interactive computer game. During the project, he realized his true passion and began the task of writing a full-length novel. The game concept is still in development at this time, and the precursors can be experienced through the mini-mystery games available via the Mike Ricksecker Mystery newsletter.
While at Ft. George G. Meade, MD, Mike was the editor for The Monitor, the 29th Intelligence Squadron newsletter. The editor position basically meant doing 75% of the writing and 100% of the layout, but enjoyable none-the-less. Also worth noting is the flyer titled “The Issues” Mike created for the George W. Bush presidential campaign which was used nation-wide in 2000. This flyer is still available for download.
In 2004, Deadly Heirs, the first installment of the Chase Michael DeBarlo mystery series was published. The not-yet-published sequel has been completed with a third in the works.
Although Mike and his family moved to Oklahoma in 2009, Ghosts of Maryland was published by Schiffer Publishing in 2010. He subsequently inked a deal to write a similar paranormal tome about ghosts and legends in Oklahoma, which was released in 2011 as Ghosts and Legends of Oklahoma.
Mike has been married to his wife, Robin, for eighteen years and they have four children.

As a music lover and sometime performer, I have loved music since I can remember. I am honored to have as my guest this week on Make Contact, 6-time Emmy Award Winner and Author Elena Mannes. Elena’s book explores how music actually changes, and potentially can heal by transforming the brain!
Now, more about Elena Mannes…
“I knew nothing about music—except for knowing what music I like—until I took this journey with Elena Mannes. What a trip! Elena Mannes has always crafted exquisite stories for television, winning all the top awards for excellence over her long career at CBS and PBS. Now she has brought that gift for storytelling to The Power of Music, laying out even for an untutored layman like me a captivating account of how music connects mind and body. She digs deeply into stunning new research into music’s importance in our lives and reveals that science and art are muses that nourish each other and enrich individual lives.”—Bill Moyers
“We’ve always known that music is a transformative, spiritual experience—now modern science can explain how and why. Elena Mannes explores this groundbreaking and often poetic new territory.”—Bobby McFerrin, vocalist/pianist/conductor
The award-winning creator of the highly acclaimed PBS Documentary The Music Instinct: Science & Song, Mannes expands on the film’s fascinating revelations and follows visionary researchers and accomplished musicians to unveil the latest discoveries in the new science of music. Drawing on her own family history, rich with generations of musicians, Mannes explores the questions of nature vs. nurture and biology vs. culture, all the while weaving a mesmerizing journey throughout the world.
Elena Mannes has won six Emmys and many other national awards for her documentaries. She is a member of one of the first families of American music. Her grandparents founded the Mannes College of Music in New York City and her great uncle, Walter Damrosch, conducted the Metropolitan Opera and was the instigator for the building of Carnegie Hall. Mannes lives in Connecticut and New York City.
