T-Shirt Giveaway: Vote for a Chance to Win Your Favorite Design!

[Disclosure: I’m receiving free T-shirts for including a link to CreateAShirt in this post!] Enter CreateAShirt.com The other day I got an email from CreateAShirt.com. They offered to print out some shirts for me in exchange for linking to their site, as I just did in the previous sentence. Pretty…

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. I visited a lot of real life haunted places while researching Paranormal Texas. I went to seances and ghost hunts, I roamed through haunted cemeteries and parks, I stayed at haunted hotels, and even dined at haunted restaurants. 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…

What’s in Tui Snider’s Book, Paranormal Texas?

Real Ghost Photo in a Historic Victorian Home, or…?

Is This a Real Ghost Photo? See that mist in the photo above? Do you think it could be a ghost? Folks often tell me they see a ghost in that picture, but interpretations vary. Some see a woman in a gown. Others see a woman’s face peering out from beneath a veil. Depending on which monitor I view the photo on, I see different things, too! About this Ghost Photo I snapped this picture a few years ago during a tea party at a historic Victorian home in Port Townsend, Washington. No one was smoking, but I had a…

Why Read Paranormal Texas?

Why read Paranormal Texas? Sure, there are other books about real haunted places in Texas – I should know, my bookshelves are crowded with them! So, what makes Paranormal Texas different? Overlooked Haunted Places First off, Paranormal Texas includes a bunch of haunted places in Texas that are not in most other books. As with my first book, Unexpected Texas, I went out of my way (often, literally!) to find quirky, offbeat and overlooked sites.
