Ghosts at Denton, Texas?

Who knew?

I searched for new ghost tales.

Who knew I'd learn about one less than two hours from my home. Denton, Texas (just north of Dallas) boasts its own ghost tour of the courthouse that has a gravesite on the property. Author, Shelly Cumbie Tucker conducts tours at 8 p.m. every Friday and Saturday nights throughout the year, weather permitting. Ones interested are asked to meet her at Jupiter House Coffee to the east of the haunted courthouse. She tells us there are so many ghosts stories in Denton that she tells a different tale each tour.

Tucker has released a book called Ghosts of Denton. It is available on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Ghosts-Denton-history-mysteries-small/dp/1500190020/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1407858037&sr=8-1&keywords=ghosts+of+denton

Of course, you can buy a copy of the book when you take the scary but historical tour of downtown Denton in the dark.

Shelley Cumbie Tucker will be the featured speaker this year at the North Texas Book Festival in April. Now, that would be a good time for a ghost tour and look at books on the same day. A win-win.

I'm busy editing my latest YA in the ghost series, and researching other tales for a third book. I'm still looking for ghost stories. If you know one, leave me a comment, or e-mail me at Janet.hope@att.net

As many times as I've been to Denton, I hadn't heard about the ghosts. Sounds like a great tour. Thanks for telling us about it.
Good luck with your edits and your new story.

I hadn't either, Beverly. Find new ghost legends everywhere.
