Anna Maria Elisa investigated over 144 cases of sightings during the Bucks County flap of 2008 as a field investigator for the Mutual UFO Network.

Unique traits: My grounded science fiction and elevated horror screenplays are based on my personal experiences as a paranormal investigator and year as a UFO investigator. The settings of my stories come from having visited countries that inspired me and people I have met whose uniqueness add flavor to my characters.
