I continue to believe in some capacity, the show Haunted Texas will find a home on PBS, cable television or the internet in 2011. Episode 1 aired on PBS all over the country in October including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and of course, all over Texas. It was well received!
People really are interested in the truth about the unseen. We co-exist with ghosts, and usually get along. They are our ancestors, family members and benevolent strangers. Still, there are the spirits that are stuck and disturbed. Often when their story is told it is cathartic.
Spirits that linger do so for many reasons. Our soul is compiled of a lifetime of intention and emotion. This is why understanding our history helps understand our ghosts. Hopefully, the Haunted Texas stories will comfort all of you who are now experiencing, or have experienced a haunting.
In the meantime I'm working on my second book (no title yet). My first chapter began when I discovered that the jailhouse in La Grange is haunted and the ghost is believed to be that of the widow Mary Dach, the second woman to be sentenced to death in the state. She was a German-Texan who murdered her farmhand because she feared for the safety of her children. 3-months after sentencing she died in her jail cell, her young children beside her and bible in hand, of starvation.
My hope is by telling her true story it will give her spirit some peace.
