Kathleen Marden is an award-winning researcher, author, on camera commentator, hypnosis practitioner, and international conference presenter. She is widely considered one of the leading UFO contact researchers of our time. Since 1990, she has researched and experienced the perplexing nature of contact with non-human entities. She has worked on three comprehensive studies on nearly 5,000 experiencers and has six professionally published books.

She is the recipient of the 2021 International UFO Congress Lifetime Achievement Award. The Mutual UFO Network bestowed several awards to Kathleen for her outstanding contributions to the scientific study of UFO phenomena and demonstrating positive leadership. She is the founder and past director of MUFON’s Experiencer Resource Team.


Prior to 2012, she had straddled the uneasy path between scientific materialism and the paraphysical. Everything changed when profound events in her personal life radically altered her worldview, transformed her perception of the nature of reality, and initiated a broader approach to her investigations and research.

Her interest in UFOs and contact began in 1961, when her aunt and uncle, Betty and Barney Hill had a close encounter and subsequent abduction in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. She has spent nearly a lifetime in search of answers through painstaking investigation, and as our technology progresses she continues to pursue scientific analysis of the compelling evidence. 

Her bestseller with nuclear physicist Stanton T. Friedman (1934-2019) is “Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience.” She expanded and updated “Captured!” in 2021. She and Stanton authored two more books “Science Was Wrong” and “Fact, Fiction, and Flying Saucers.” Her book with Denise Stoner “The Alien Abduction Files” includes her investigation of six inter-generational cases of ET contact. Her fifth book “Extraterrestrial Contact: what to do when you’ve been abducted” is a comprehensive guide to abduction phenomena. Read her latest bestseller “Forbidden Knowledge: A Personal Journey from Alien Abduction to Spiritual Transformation” for deeper insight into Kathleen’s own contact experiences, experiments, life, and works. Her books are available in all formats on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
