Since TrueGhostTales.com was created in 2007 thousands of people have sent in descriptions and stories about their encounters with the paranormal and the unexplained.
During the course of that time we have received lots of questions about such wide ranging interests; everything from ghosts to Bigfoot, demons to angels, dreams and nightmares to psychic visions and premonitions, UFOs and strange creatures to witch craft, and religion and spirituality.
