Creatures of the Night, Beyond Belief with George Noory

Banshees, werewolves, and mermaids are all the stuff of fantastical legends stretching beyond the limits of recorded history. But what if there was some truth to the tales of these mysterious creatures? Author Varla Ventura’s passion is researching the bizarre and she reveals the truth behind the legends of several creatures of the night in this interview with George Noory originally webcast January 1, 2014.

 Varla Ventura is a lover of all things strange, freaky, and terrifying. She is the author of Banshees, Werewolves, Vampires, and Other Creatures of the Night and curates the Weiser Magical Creatures and Paranormal Parlor series of e-books. When not burning the midnight oil writing about weird news for her Blog of the Bizarre, she can be seen traversing the hidden cemeteries and phantom ships in the greater Bay Area. She can be found online at www.varlventura.com. 

Don’t I look like a happy little freak? See more of me than you ever thought you wanted to.
