Mary Sutherland doesn't just believe in ghosts. She sees them , takes photos of them and has made it her life's work to spread the word that there are other worlds, other dimensions, other life forms. From her tiny, cluttered
storefront office on North Pine Street in downtown Burlington, Sutherland researches chronicles and writes, operating as the Burlington UFO and Paranormal Center. She broadcasts around the world on the internet as BUFO
Radio (, bringing in experts on paranormal activity to chat with her listeners. Sutherland refers to her work as the study of interdimensional Science, but claims she's not looking to sensationalize her
ideas, theories and discoveries. Rather, she hopes to give her work credibility, reaching a wide audience with her calm, rational and, yes, scientific explanations of the unexplainable.

"I work with physicists, scientists and photographers to help spread the truth," she says. "I contact the experts because I want credibility for my work."

Sutherland warns against inexperienced people ghosthunting on their own and offers group tours of local haunts, as well as guided ghost hunts. She cautions that it is possible to unleash something for which you are not
prepared. "This is a very real world and there are entities we don't see with our eyes, " she says. "It's risky if you don't know what you're doing."

“There are rare persons in this world who see things others
don’t; persons who connect the dots of existence and
possess an instinctive talent for linking with kindred souls to
reveal otherwise invisible patterns and excavate hidden
truths. Such a person is Mary Sutherland. She is a natural-
born networker in all she does --- from her Burlington
Vortex Conferences and Sci’Fi Café to her public talks and
published books. Nowhere, however, is her gift for
perception more developed than in her latest title.“  Frank
Joseph .
Joseph was nominated by Japan's Savant Society as
Professor of World Archaeology. He was editor-in-chief of
Ancient American Magazine from 1993 to 2007 and has
traveled the world collecting research materials for his
twenty-seven published books.
"Mary Sutherland is not simply a reporter of all these phenomena;
she lives them! As readers expect, her studies extend beyond her
own experiences. The author and investigator often takes visitors
on tours containing an inter-dimensional vortex and hosts yearly
conferences and meet ups with many well known speakers on
anomalous phenomena."
What differentiates her book. Haunted Burlington Wisconsin , is that
Sutherland includes her explanations of the unknown realms and
phenomena with tips for heightening the reader's own psychic
awareness. Readers who complete this dizzying journey may find
they can no longer look at Burlington in exactly the same way.
Perhaps, then, this book itself may be considered a vortex. and
whether or not it actually transports you to another place, it will
certainly draw you in."
