About my books:
So far, I’ve published 3 books, but plenty more are on the way!
My first book, Unexpected Texas, is a travel guide to offbeat and overlooked places within easy reach of the Dallas – Fort Worth region of North Texas.
Unexpected Texas has remained a best seller on Amazon for Dallas – Fort Worth Travel since its release in March of 2014!
In April of 2015, Unexpected Texas won First Place for Adult Non-Fiction at the North Texas Book Festival. (Click here for more: Unexpected Texas)
My second book, Paranormal Texas, is another offbeat travel guide. In this book, I take readers on a tour of allegedly haunted places near Dallas and Fort Worth.
Like my first book, Paranormal Texas has also remained a top seller for Dallas – Forth Worth Travel since its release! (Click here for more: Paranormal Texas),
My third book, The Lynching of the Santa Claus Bank Robber is a strange-but-true tale of Texas history.
And *spoiler alert* Santa Claus gets lynched at the end, but there is so much more strange-but-true history involved in this story! For instance, my research uncovered some startling information that is left out of the official record of this event: a mysterious blonde woman who may have gotten away with murder!
In April of 2016, The Lynching of the Santa Claus Bank Robber won Second Place for Adult Non-Fiction at the North Texas Book Festival. (Click here for more about The Lynching of Santa Claus)
I have several other books in progress, including one entitledMessages from the Dead: A Guide to Cemetery Symbols. Since my book research often takes me to historic graveyards, I found myself wondering what all the different symbols meant. I looked for a field giude to cemetery symbols, and was surprised to find that there isn’t one out there! So I have been researching cemetery symbolism for the past several years, and I hope to released this book by the spring of 2017.

And write blog posts:
I truly believe that travel is a mindset and that even home is a travel destination! So, whether I’m at home or on the road, I share photo essays about the offbeat and overlooked places that I find along the way.
My book research takes me to historic graveyards, so I often write blog posts about the meaning of cemetery symbols as well as the interesting history that I encounter.
Creativity is a journey in itself, so I also share posts about writing, as well as reviews of hotels, restaurants and live performances.
