Some horror stories just happened to impede my life during the childhood. I can still sense the abnormal things that occur in the haunted houses. The difference is now that I know how to term those abnormal incidents as paranormal activity. Also, I can find the nitty gritty of those events. Yes, I can because I’m a paranormal investigator. I travelled far lands in search for the haunted houses, hotels, mansions and their stories. Some have disgusted me, and some are responsible for more grey hairs on my head. That's why I am no short of experiences to share with the people who are interested in paranormal things. Believe me; this stuff is much more interesting than what you have seen in the screens like paranormal activity or the Ghostbusters. They are no near to the real ones. I have been writing about my experiences as an investigator. If you are up for a haunted experience, just check out my writings!
