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.

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.

What a beautiful book...loved hearing Julie’s voice!

I had the privilege of working with Julie, she is truly an amazing woman. Hearing her read these words, her words, was truly delightful. Julie is completely frank, raw, and honest about her life. And her journey took her into the realm where spirits live. She made me want to go “there”, too. The Audible version was a six hour “listen” ... I was able to listen in a single sitting with one bio-break. I have just purchased the hard cover book...I want to scratch through it to find and better understand how I might find some spirits of my own. I absolutely related to this book. I found that we have some real life similarities. I, too, lost my mother to severe dementia. My mom, Marjie, was clearly the most influential woman in my life. She’s been gone for over a decade and I am still not over it. Listening to Julie reading her words about her mom, her champion, had a journey with Alzheimer’s disease. Her candor grabbed my soul. I am certain that there are ghosts in my house. I’ve not had the courage to face them...but Julie’s book gave me the strength. This book was a true catharsis for me. Thank you, Julie.

Intriguing

I really enjoyed this. Julie’s reading of her own work is captivating and “real.” I almost got the sense she was sharing her story directly with me. It wasn’t so much a “performance” as it was a discussion. She does not “preach” or try to force you to believe. She says several times she is simply sharing her experiences and it is up to each reader or listener to believe or not. If you don’t believe, she’s still a pretty great story teller. If you do believe, then listen closely; her insight is very intriguing. As for me, I believe. I wish I could open myself up to the other side as she has, although I guess I’m also a bit afraid to do so.

I'm in love with this woman!

Fascinating! This book is written so well, the author is highly educated and that makes her words even that more believable coming from an educated woman in a very high position in the movie industry. its opened up my portals. She gives a couple other GREAT book suggestions as well as unique cleansing herbs and the like and teaches you how to clear negative things from your home.

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.
