About Me

About me.....I lost my grandfather when I was 17. I had a VERY difficult time getting over it. I just needed to know that I could still communicate with him. I loved him so much I didn't think I could live without him. I read everything I could get my hands on that had to do with the "afterlife" and that started it all...the love of Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal. I am now a Certified Paranormal Investigator and have my own Paranormal Group. I have been researching the paranormal for over 30 years!! It is my way of staying in touch with my grandfather. Being a Ghost Hunter is not always as exciting as it seems on TV. Many nights I have sat in the dark and not a thing happened. BUT it is those times you DO get that one voice, that one unexplainable picture or have an experience that sends chills down your back that makes it sooo worth it all!!! My purpose of this blog is not to make people believe in ghosts but maybe to open their minds just a little bit... I LOVE this crazy thing called Ghost Hunting. It is as much a part of me as breathing. I am just a girl that refuses to accept we can't still contact our loved ones after they die. My grandfather won't let me.

EVP's from the VERY HAUNTED Goatman's Bridge featured on Ghost Adventure...

Electronic Voice Phenomena-EVP's that's what we say here in the paranormal world but you guys already knew that. :)  One of the MOST exciting developments in the field of the paranormal is the use of technology to capture unexplained human voices or sounds.  That's what we LOVE right???  A voice that is answering our questions or saying something that we KNOW we didn't make.

EVP's were first discovered quite by accident by Friedrich Jurgenson as he was recording bird calls near his home in Sweden during the 1950's.  He was flabbergasted when he heard a man's voice telling him how to better record the bird songs.  Totally intrigued, Jurgenson continued his recordings for many years after that and subsequently published a book, Voices From the Universe, that described his method of electronic communication with the dead.

Some claim the discovery of the EVP goes MUCH further back than that.  Thomas Edison, the inventor of the telephone, was quoted in Scientific American in the 1920's as saying: "Nobody knows whether our personalities pass on to another existence or sphere, but it is possible to construct an apparatus which will be so delicate that if there are personalities in another existence or sphere, this apparatus will at least give them a better opportunity to express themselves than the tilting tables and raps and Ouija boards and mediums and the other crude methods now purported to be the only means of communication."

Anyone can try to capture an EVP.  It can be done with either analog or digital recorders, though the analog or digital recorders, though the analog method will probably be phased out very shortly because of the superior quality of digital voice recorders and the ease of transferring files to a computer.  Some investigators recommend performing the experiments outside your own home; after all, if something disturbing is discovered it may upset you and change how you feel about your personal living space.

So, how do we record an EVP....

1.  Make sure your equipment is working properly. 
2.  Tune an AM or FM radio to the space between channels to generate white noise.  Running water and computer programs that generate background noise will also work.
3.  State the date, time, your name, and where you are at the beginning of your recording.
4.  Ask a question, and wait about 30 secs for a response.  Understanding that it takes a lot of energy to be heard.  Don't rush.
5.  Be polite.  There is no need to provoke any entity.
6.  Transfer your recording onto your computer.  Different audio programs can help clean up the EVP.  I use Audacity.

Just a quick note...I always CLOSE the session by saying "thank you for the communication with me tonight but as of this moment ALL communication is closed".

I LOVE EVP's!!!!  They are hard work but they are worth it!!!!!!! 

Above are a few EVP's that I have gotten out at the bridge that I give tours at.  See what you think!!!

FILMING WITH THE GHOST ADVENTURES CREW AT THE GOATMAN'S BRIDGE IN DENTON, TX-A BRIDGE WITH SO MUCH DARK HISTORY...WILL WE SURVIVE??

Links to this post


WOW!!! What a surprise to get a call from the Ghost Adventures producer to feature me on a 2-hour Halloween Special!!!  What????  How did that happen??? Did they call the right number? However it did....YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, where do I start!  I'm going to make this short and sweet.  They wanted to do a special on the Old Alton Bridge in Denton, Tx where I give ghost tours.  The bridge is better known as "Goatman's Bridge" by the locals.  They wanted to know if I would appear in a 2-Hour Halloween Special.  Now,  if I'm being honest......HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I was jumping around all over my house and at the same time trying to play it "Cool" on the phone with the producer...."well, sure....I guess I could do that". LOL   They ask me to gather a couple of people that I knew had had an experience at the bridge so I asked Belynda DiCiaccio and Phoebe Birt.

It ended up being a "family affair" because Belynda's son Kaleb, my daughter Lindsey and Belynda's husband Mark all got to do some reenacting for the show!!!  This bridge has a VERY DARK PAST full of murder, suicide, death, torture and very evil souls that remain tied to this bridge.  Now, before I can go any further I also want to thank my boyfriend Deak who was AMAZING through this whole process!!!  It took about threes day to complete and he just let me "do my thing" and never complained and was soooo supportive!   Thank you honey...I love you tons and tons!!!! 

Now, the burning question on everyone's mind???  What is Zak really like???   Lol.  Well he definitely is as cute in person as he is on TV!  The other guys are soooo nice as well.  I can definitely tell you that Zak runs "the show".  Telling everyone where to stand and what to do.  Business....very business like!!!  No room for small talk at all. lol

Also, I don't know how many of you are from Texas but it's HOT HERE!!!!  Sweat ran down our faces the whole time we were there.  I don't think the Ghost Adventures Crew was ready for the heat!

This bridge has a dark history that includes....murder, suicide, torture, missing children and lots and lots of violence!  Every time we are at the bridge we always get great EVP's and pictures.  If you look at the top of my blog you will see information about the bridge and check out all the pictures we have gotten there.  And also, there will be other stories on the special besides ours.  It's not just two hours of the bridge.

Now, this will air on the Travel Channel on October 29th, 2016.  I'm not sure of the times so check your guide.  And I don't want to hear any comments about how bad I looked because it was like 110 degrees and I had on black standing in the sun!!! LOL  I can tell you that SOMETHING did happen to one of the Ghost Adventures Film Crew while filming.  It was not planned and it did STOP production for quite a while!  It was VERY SCARY so don't miss it!!!

One last thing, this is a TV SHOW so they REALLY play it up big!!!  They only wanted to know about the EVIL things that took place at the bridge and not really interested in the history.  So keep that in mind when watching. :)

One last thing....I LOVED GETTING to do this!!!  I have ALWAYS wanted to have some of my paranormal photos and experience recognized on TV......not so I can say "I'm a star" or "famous" or anything like that.....just wanted someone to validate that the things I do or research are "good enough" to be on TV.  My whole life has been devoted to the paranormal in honor of my grandfather (I know that's weird to some of you) and for some CRAZY reason I just always felt if I get my stuff on TV that my grandfather and I could say...."we'll we DID IT and WE DID IT TOGETHER"!!!!  
Well, that dream came true a few years back when I got to go to LA and film for my Ghost Stories but to be able to do it a SECOND TIME....there are no words............NONE.....none that I can think of that could express my gratitude and how LUCKY I have been!  Some people's dreams DO come true....and some people.....well.........some people like me...........do something crazy in life like Ghost Hunting that others don't always understand......and get to be on TOP OF THE WORLD and yell.........Thank you......I DID IT........ TWICE!!!!!(That got a little mushy didn't it? LOL)  

The pictures below are just some that we took while filming.  Be sure to notice the ones I have circled.   They are not great but I wanted to show them to you anyway.  One, has a light mist.  It's kinda' hard to see and the other SEEMS to have well....horns on the top of it!!!  See what you think and DON'T FORGET TO WATCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





































It is hard to tell but there seems
to be a "light mist" in this pic.
