I have been interested in the paranormal since childhood having grown up in a haunted house in central Alabama. We experienced all kinds of creepy activity in our house, including doors opening and closing on their own, footsteps in the hallway and attic space, and disembodied voices throughout the house. This peaked my interest in ghosts and started me down the path of paranormal investigating.
Not only did my interest in ghosts start at a young age, but I began enjoying storytelling and writing at the ripe old age of 8. I published my first short story while in high school. I continued with the short stories and poetry through college then dabbled in screenwriting.
In 2003, I began doing my own paranormal investigations in historic places. I began with Sloss Furnace in my hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, where I captured my first spirit photo. Next came various other historical places around my state until I finally branched out into other areas of the southeast and the country, including Rice Hope Plantation in South Carolina, Myrtles Plantation in Louisiana and even the great former ocean liner Queen Mary in Long Beach California.
My paranormal and writing interests finally combined in 2013 when I began publishing fiction and nonfiction books about ghosts and my own personal experiences. My first paranormal book "The Legends of Indian Narrows" told the stories of the haunted house and neighborhood I grew up in during my childhood. Next came my first novel "Haunts" about a fictional paranormal team and based on actual haunted locations throughout the southeast.
In 2013, I also joined my first paranormal team S.C.A.R.E. of Alabama, led by co-founders Kim Johnston and Shane Busby. We investigate not only public places but also private homes and businesses who are experiencing paranormal activity and need assistance. My adventures with the team have been wonderful, educational and inspirational to my writing.
