Writer and Broadcaster Jason Day was born and raised in Scunthorpe, where he lived for nearly thirty years until moving to Essex. Jason was the longest serving feature writer for ‘Paranormal’ magazine (March 2006 – January 2008), the largest monthly paranormal publication of its kind in the UK at the time, writing over twenty articles during that period.

Jason has also been commissioned to write two books for The History Press, ‘Haunted Scunthorpe’ (21st September 2010 release) and ‘Paranormal Essex’ (2011 release).

Jason grew up on a staple diet of ‘Hammer Horror’ movies and the written works of Peter Underwood, Dr Hans Holzer and Harry Price. With the advent of television shows such as ‘Arthur C Clarke’s Mysterious World’ and ‘Strange But True’ Jason was hooked.
