Ann Treherne, Chair of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre, has just published her first book, Arthur and Me which tells the Centre’s origin story. 

Arthur and Me documents how Sir Arthur Conan Doyle communicating from beyond the grave led to the founding of the centre.

The book has been given the accolade of a foreword written by Prof Chris Roe, President of The Society for Psychical Research, London and Professor of Psychology, University of Northampton.

Arthur and Me takes us back to Ann’s earlier career in banking. Back then she seemed amongst the least likely to believe in paranormal phenomena. But as she describes frankly in this book, she was confronted by a profound personal experience – a traumatic premonition. Struggling to make sense of her experience and harbouring guilt from not acting on her vision, Ann embarked on a journey. A journey of investigation and exploration into the strange world of the paranormal.

She eventually set up a spiritualist circle. During these sessions, Ann records the first intervention of a communicator who would later reveal himself to be Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Over six years, Sir Arthur directed Ann to find a building that was to become The Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre, in Edinburgh.
