Is there Paranormal Evidence in Paranormal Texas?

Paranormal Activity While Researching Paranormal Texas Since my latest book, Paranormal Texas, is a travel guide to haunted places, readers often ask if I saw any ghosts, or had any paranormal experiences while researching it.

While I certainly had some subjective experiences while investigating all these paranormal hot spots here in the Dallas – Fort Worth region of Texas, I can’t claim…
