LOS ANGELES, Sept. 25 -- GHOST WHISPERER consultant Mary Ann Winkowski, a real-life communicator with spirits whose work helped inspire the series, has a new feature on CBS.com called "Ask Mary Ann." Each week, Mary Ann will post answers to questions asked in five letters from viewers who want advice on how to deal with spirits in their lives.
In GHOST WHISPERER, Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt) communicates with earthbound spirits who cling to the living because they have unfinished business that prevents them from moving beyond the familiar plane of existence that we call life. Inspired in part by the work of famed medium James Van Praagh and of Mary Ann Winkowski, GHOST WHISPERER explores the spiritual side of life and death as Melinda navigates among the dead and the living in her sometimes chilling, sometimes heart-rending and sometimes amusing attempts to act as an intermediary between the ghosts and those they haunt. The second season of GHOST WHISPERER premiered Friday, Sept. 22 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
