Colleen Foley Journalist

As our newest staff member, Colleen brings a new flavor to Shallow Graves.  Starting off as a performer, she’s had  11 years of voice training and appeared in many local theatrical productions.  Later, she spent time rocking venues in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, with her bands Explorer and Internal Affairs.   Colleen also spent five years as a tour guide at the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast Museum. She has appeared on several television shows, given many radio interviews and class lectures, and been consulted as an authority on a book about Lizzie Borden called The Murderer’s Maid.  Her fascination with the spirit world began at the age of nine, when she started having dreams about a long-dead aunt who told her things she could not have known, about her family.  Not long after that she watched her first horror movie while hiding behind a chair because she wasn’t supposed to be awake!  The rest, as they say, is history.  Colleen is also an amateur paranormal investigator.  She has participated in investigations  of the Borden homestead with Brian J. Cano of The Haunted Collector, and Tim Weisberg of Spooky Southcoast, among others. Colleen is always looking for new idea for articles and folks to interview.  You can reach her at
