Headline for paranormal outlets: “Author Encounters Eerie Doppelganger at a Haunted Hotel in Texas”
AZLE, Texas – Aug 13, 2019 — Think paranormal activity only happens at night? Think again. And did you know that haunted elevators are a thing? And what, exactly, is the most common name for North Texas ghosts?

Researching this book meant attending official ghost hunts with paranormal researchers. It was a lot of fun and I learned surprising things along the way.”
For instance, on a paranormal investigation at a haunted hotel, paranormal investigators had an encounter with Snider’s ghostly doppelgänger. “I used to think doppelgängers were mere folklore,” Tui explains, “But when mine showed up at the Olde Park Hotel, I was stunned. We even recorded her voice and she sounds exactly like me!” (Here’s a link to a YouTube video in which you can hear this EVP: Doppelganger EVP.)
