I've been interested in ghost stories since a very young age. It was my fascination with them that led me to seek them out once I discovered this new thing called "the internet" back in 1999. Guess it wasn't THAT new but it was to me. I had a boring job as a receptionist and to kill time I'd hunt for true ghost stories. And boy did I find them. All sorts of websites dedicated to just that. It was from there that I found my way to a paranormal message board much like this one and I was once and for all.....hooked.
Reading about everyone else's experiences made me realize that I was sorely lacking one of my own. So....I began to do some reseach and discovered that one of the most haunted towns in Texas was only about 3 hours from me. Jefferson.
I booked a room in its reported old haunted hotel, The Jefferson Hotel and booked its most haunted room. #19. There I got what I wanted. My first ghostly experience. While I was in the room, the words "help me" were written in what looked like old fashioned lipstick on my window panes.
I've been a paranormal investigator ever since. That was 2001. I began taking trips to haunted locations and doing my own personal investigations of them.
In 2007, I formed the paranormal investigation team "Haunted Texas Investigations". We investigated cemeteries, hotels, a couple of shops and a house. We had a blast. Unfortunately in spring of 2009 our team disbanded. But I wouldn't have traded that time for anything.
A few months later, I joined TEXPART. I am so impressed with this team and SO glad I found them. I look forward to many extraordinary experiences in our future.
