Linda Godfrey

Author Biography

Linda Godfrey is an author and researcher of the strange and uncanny and has been called Wisconsin's leading authority on the paranormal. On her travels throughout Wisconsin and Michigan, Godfrey has investigated anything mysterious or quirky, such as giant roadside statues, unidentified creatures, and local legends and eccentrics.

Her book The Beast of Bray Road: Tailing Wisconsin's Werewolf (2003) established Godfrey as an authority on a creature that was first reported sighted in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, and that may have been a werewolf, dogman, or manwolf. Her other books include: Hunting the American Werewolf (2006), Strange Wisconsin: More Badger State Weirdness (2007), and Haunted Wisconsin: Ghosts and Strange Phenomena of the Badger State (2010).

Godfrey grew up in Wisconsin and worked as an art teacher and newspaper reporter. She continues to make artwork and illustrates her own books.
