About my books:
My first book came out in 2014, and I just can’t seem to stop writing them!
100 Things to Do in Dallas – Fort Worth Before You Die: Have you ever drawn a blank when a friend or family member asks, “What do you want to do today?” This book is a fun bucket list meant to inspire readers to explore North Texas. As of this writing, it’s still in the pre-order phase, but it has already been named a #1 New Release on Amazon. Find it on Amazon: 100 Things DFW
Twitter for Writers: As of this writing, this book has not been officially released, but it’s coming soon. 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. (If you’re interested in this book, email me at TuiSnider@gmail.com)
Six Feet Under Texas: I’m still researching and writing this book, but since I have a rough draft of the cover, I thought I’d include it. Bascially, 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, drop by my website (TuiSnider.com) and sign up for my newsletter.
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. Find it on Amazon:
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:
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 give talks:
Do you need a dynamic speaker for your next event? I am an inquisitive world traveler who loves sharing with audiences in an informative and lighthearted way.

And take photos:
I am an avid iPhone photographer who’s work has been featured on Coast to Coast AM, Sky Europe, Fox News, 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 57 of my photos to help illustrate the emotional journey she takes readers on with her poetry collection entitled Wild Woman Waking. (Click here for more about Wild Woman Waking)
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.
