Episode 17: Sharon Eby – Author, Anthropologist, and Bigfoot Researcher

Sharon began reading about the paranormal and cryptozoology during childhood and had a fascination with the strange and unusual for as long as she can remember.

Her Bigfoot research began in 2001 when she and her family were camping near Radium Springs, NM and her son and nephew had a Bigfoot encounter. She jumped into research with both feet in 2003 after an article in the El Paso Times mentioned “Horizon City’s Monster” near where she lived, east of El Paso. Her research followed locally discovered patterns in the desert southwest (West Texas and Southern New Mexico region) and included mapmaking and geological connections.

She volunteered for several months in 2005 at SaveTheChimps.org (Alamogordo, NM, frequented by Anthropologist Jane Goodall) before they moved the chimps to an island in Florida.

Sharon was the West Regional Leader for the TBRC (Texas Bigfoot Research Center) from 2003-2007. She was a Bigfootology team member (2013-2014) in Washington state and has been an Affiliate with Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research since July 2020.

Sharon wrote/published her book “Bigfoot Beyond Belief” in early 2021, which covers a study in cultural anthropology of what people believe about Bigfoot/Sasquatch.
