About me


People know me by many names and as you check out my blogs, you will learn who I am. I am an author, but I'm also a psychic medium. Let's chat about two of my names.

Some people call me Steampunk Granny because I love everything Steampunk, and I get into more adventures than a comic book character. Retired from the Academy of Natural Sciences where I was: the manager of the Changing Exhibit Hall; the Mummy Expert; Coordinator of Birthday Parties, I finally have time to do what I love best. I love to write sci-fi stories, do psychic readings, and go on ghost investigations. Now, that’s what I call a great retirement.
I have the first four books of my Roof Oasis sci-fi apocalyptic series published: Roof Oasis; Saving Solanda; Beware the Harvesters; and Warriors in the Mist. My series is fast moving and full of action, but it is also a love story: Romeo and Juliet meet the Walking Dead written by Jules Verne kind of story. You can buy my books on Createspace.com, Amazon or Kindle.

Right now, I'm working on a book about the two ghosts that live in my attic. I know these ghosts...and they know me. Life with Fred and Lucy: The Two Ghosts in My Attic will be out in the summer of 2018

I’m not only published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Touched by an Angel October 2014, I also have a vampire short story “New Home” in Bloody Kisses Press: Babes and Beasts Anthology. I served as co-editor of the South Jersey Writers’ Group short story anthology, Tall Tales and Short Stories from South Jersey and, have two stories of my own in the collection, “Night of the Attack” and “Where Are You Zeppie?”

I not only do reviews of movies and television shows on my pop culture blog Gilbertspeaks, but I am also the senior writer for the Canadian Pop Culture Online Site Biff Bam Pop! Last year, I took the plunge into the world of screenwriting for Chris Eilenstein’s Shadows of the Forest.


Check out my blog to learn how to protect yourself from zombies and, read about some of my ghost investigations.
I'm known as the South Jersey Italian Psychic because I am a psychic/medium who does readings using angel cards. I also do ghost investigations and if you suspect that your house is haunted, you can contact me here mariegilb@comcast.net Not all ghosts are harmful, but if you’re not sure what you are dealing with, then you need to call in someone who does.
