Events! From Mermaids to Limericks

Hey everyone! I’ve made the first of many events posts that will hit your inbox at least once a month if you subscribe to Tales from the Moon Tower on Substack. Events will mostly be in the central Texas area, but I will occasionally post things from further afield. I hope to see you at some of these! 

You can read and subscribe here.

Haunted by Hurricanes:The 1919 Hurricane in Corpus Christi and the Ghost that Remains.


Read about the Hurricane of 1919 and the ghost of Mary Ward McCampbell in my newest Substack article! My bachelorette party was a ghost tour of Heritage Park in Corpus Christi, Texas, where I first learned of her battle against the oncoming storm. I did loads of research and have links and resources for you if you wish to follow up for more. 

Subscribe to my Substack to read more ghost stories and strange history from Texas. This one is an example of what you'll get with a paid subscription, but you will also have access to travel guides, fun events, participation opportunities for my oral history project, and more!

It's been a few years since I've posted any new podcast episodes, but y'all have seen me on socials, still exploring central Texas. Some new things are underway for Tales from the Moon Tower, namely my transition to Substack

I've removed most podcast episodes, and I'll likely remove those that remain and replace them with an oral history project I want to do in connection to my Substack articles. The writing allows me to include both reference information AND reader participation. The whole point of this work was to make you feel connected to Texas history, to engage you with strange or obscure stories to a past that belongs as much to you as to those we always hear about. Substack allows me to engage directly with readers, and to learn from your stories as well. Subscribers will have opportunities to contribute to my oral history project, and get access to event information, travel guides, and more!

As a free subscriber, you’ll have access to:

  • Regular notes posts
  • Occasional free articles
  • Event information for Tales from the Moon Tower and related organizations
  • “Remember When…” nostalgia pieces.

As a paid subscriber, you’ll have access to:

  • Chats and comments
  • Full access to well researched articles on strange history, ghost stories and local legends.
  • Participation consideration for my oral history project or guest interviews. (Depending on the stories you offer - no glorification of racism, misogyny or ableism.)
I hope you'll follow me so that we can engage in our local history together!
