Rhia Tortilla grew up in Tuscan AZ and Canton IL. When she was six years old she began to hear and see people that others couldn't. At the time this was more of a curse than a gift. Over the years she learned to open herself to the messages that she was receiving and began to embrace her gift. Since then, she has become especially skilled in Tarot and Past Life readings as well as paranormal investigations. She has investigated the Bird Cage Theater in Tombstone Arizona and the Myrtles Plantation, just outside of Baton Rouge Louisiana. She says the energies she has picked up in Dallas during her research phase are parallel to her experiences in Louisiana. Rhia can now be found in Salem, at the Salem Ghost Tours. She can't wait to guide you through Dallas!
Even a cold, chilly night cant keep tour participants away!
