Whitney and Tayler became friends in the summer of 2017 and became housemates in the summer of 2018. The business went live in 2019 in anticipation of the release of book one in the Paranormal Booktivity seriesThe Mystery of the Stolen Spell Book.

 

"What started off as an inside joke became a mutual dream for the future, which remains at the forefront of our plans,despite the times in which life inevitably gets in the way. I started a new job in a company I am proud to work for and I would love to focus on my progression there once I graduate with my master's in December [2019]. So, it's difficult to find time to focus on anything else. But PB is always on my mind, every day. It's a safe space for both of us and a necessary outlet for creativity. There will always be things to do for PB." ~ Whitney Hayes

"When you close your eyes, what do you think of? Some people envision white sandy beaches and blue waters. Others may envision mountains with snow covered peaksrocky passes and streams. For meit was always a forest in autumn,with leaves falling and then covering the ground with colours of vibrant goldwarm orange and deep crimson redpreparing the world for the end of another year. Then, in 2017, the Universe sent me Whitney . . . and, as she mentionedan inside joke somehow made it into the realm of reality. As Melvin became more and more realI was transported back to those daydreams and how they made me feel., When I think about PBI can close my eyes and breathe in the cool autumn air and it instantly cleanses my soul of the monotony of life. I guess, that's what Paranormal Booktivity means, to me. ComfortHome." Tayler Mason

Our Vision

I'm sure part of us would love to spend all our time in a real-life Halloween themed book/shop/cafe one day . . . but that's not entirely realistic. For nowwhat has been enough for two years is just enjoying each other's company. Long nights in with Meechodrinking flavored coffeewatching spooky YouTube videos to get inspiration while we write notes on Paranormal Booktivity and talk about the characters and their back stories. It's almost like we've been living in Melvin all along, and that has been more than enough. Stillit would be amazing to share that feeling with more people (beyond our family and friends.) One dayif one person outside of our inner circle is entertained by being part of a Paranormal Booktivity adventure, then all the nights we ever spent laughingterrified and exhausted will mean so much more in our memories.
