I love writing books!

Books by Tui Snider:

Since 2014, I’ve been writing books about North Texas travel, historic cemetery symbols, and haunted history. I sometimes joke that, “I used to write fiction – but then, I moved to Texas!”

Here’s a list of the books I have published, as well as a sneak peek at a couple more that are on the way:

100 Things to Do in Dallas – Fort Worth Before You Die: This book is a fun bucket list meant to inspire readers to explore North Texas. Not only has it reached #1 for DFW Travel on Amazon, but it was also named a #1 New Release. Find it on Amazon: 100 Things DFW

Twitter for Writers: If you’re a writer who feels frustrated with or confused by Twitter, this book walks you through the simple-but-effective methods that helped boost my writing career through Twitter. As of this writing, this book has not been officially released, but it’s coming soon. (If you’re interested in this book, email me at

Six Feet Under Texas: Coming in 2019:  Six Feet Under Texas tells the stories behind the most famous, infamous, and historic graves to be found in the Lone Star State. If you’d like to know when this one comes out, you could either follow me on Amazon or sign up for my newsletter (or both!)

Understanding Cemetery Symbols: This is my most popular book of all (as well as my most frequently requested presentation topic!) Understanding Cemetery Symbols even hit bestseller lists in Australia and the UK, so I can call it an international bestseller! So what’s it about? Understanding Cemetery Symbols describes the meaning behind the symbols and architecture found in the historic graveyards of America. Find it on Amazon: Understanding Cemetery Symbols.

Graveyard Journal: I made two companion journals for Understanding Cemetery Journals. The first one is called Graveyard Journal and it helps taphophiles to keep all their cemetery information in one place. Genealogists love this book! Find it on Amazon: Graveyard Journal.

Ghost Hunters Journal: I created the Ghost Hunters Journal as a simple tool to help ghost hunters better analyze their data, identify trends, and become aware of recurring events that would otherwise be overlooked or forgotten. Find it on Amazon: Ghost Hunters Journal.

Unexpected Texas: This is a lighthearted travel guide to offbeat and overlooked placed in North Texas. It hit #1 on Amazon’s DFW Travel list two days after its release, and remains a bestseller even today. Find it on Amazon: Unexpected Texas.

Paranormal Texas: This is a travel guide to haunted hot spots throughout North Texas. Like my first book, it is also a bestseller on Amazon. Find it on Amazon: Paranormal Texas.

The Lynching of the Santa Claus Bank Robber: This is a strange-but-true tale of a very bad Santa who terrorized West Texas during the Roaring Twenties. My research uncovered a mysterious blonde woman who may have gotten away with murder! Find it on Amazon: Santa Claus Bank Robber

Come to My Senses: I don’t just write books; I play several instruments and write songs, too! Listeners describe my music as “mystical” and “dreamy” and it seems to appeal most to people who like to meditate. I published a companion book that contains the lyrics to my 10-song CD along with photographs and some behind-the-scenes info. To hear samples of my music, click here: Tui Snider’s Music

I also take photos:

I am an avid iPhone photographer who’s work has been featured by Coast to Coast AM, Sky Europe, Fox News, the City of Plano, easyJet and more. In addition to being the Writer & Photographer in Residence for the 2016 Langdon Review Weekend, I had my first photography show, as well.

Wild Woman Waking:Author Morgan Dragonwillow uses my photos to help illustrate the emotional journey she takes readers on with her poetry collection entitled Wild Woman Waking.

Shades of Angels: Another book to feature my photography is Shades of Angels by Teal L. Gray. As the title suggests, the book showcases angel statues I’ve photographed in historic cemeteries around the world. Find it on Amazon: Shades of Angels.

What’s next?

I’ve got several more books in the pipeline, so if you’d like to know when the next one comes out, you could either follow me on Amazon or sign up for my newsletter (or both!) 

Why sign up for the newsletter?

My favorite thing about having an author newsletter is how it opens a two-way conversation with readers! I get lots of good advice and tips for things to research from you folks.

Newsletter readers were especially helpful with my most recent release (100 Things to Do in Dallas – Fort Worth Before You Die: ) It was tough narrowing the list down to 100, but after noting which places cropped up over and over when readers gave me their lists, I was able to get the book written.
