What's New

Jun 12, 2019 - I was interviewed about Virginia's Haunted Historic Triangle 2nd Edition: Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown, and Other Haunted Locations for the Authors Show. You can listen to the podcast Tuesday, June 18th, by scrolling down and clicking Virginia’s Haunted Historic Triangle link connected to my name for June 18th at Authors Show

Jun 11, 2019 - I am pleased to announce I will be doing a workshop, "Breaking Out of Your Shell," at the Virginia Writers Club Navigating Your Writing Life Symposium 2019 August 3, 2019, at the V. Earl Dickinson Theater in Charlottesville, Virginia. For those who are writers or trying to be, to sign up for this one-day conference, there is an early-bird deal for those registering before July 1st at Symposium (you don't have to be a Virginia Writers Club member). I will also be doing Monster Fest in Chesapeake, Virginia October 5th this year again.

For the addresses and more about the conference and/or Monster Fest, check my Appearances at a Glance.

Keep an eye on this website. With Virginia's Haunted Historic Triangle 2nd Edition: Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown, and Other Haunted Locations releasing in July 2019, I can promise I'll be appearing for more book signings and events. And there are more places to preorder Virginia's Haunted Historic Triangle 2nd Edition: Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown, and Other Haunted Locations releasing in July 2019, at B&N, Books A Million, Indiebound, and even at Target online!

May 29, 2019 - A few more weeks and all the copies of Virginia's Haunted Historic Triangle 2nd Edition: Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown, and Other Haunted Locations will be in Schiffer Publishing's warehouse. Already, I have set up the place, Retro Daddio in Williamsburg, Virginia for the book release event. I now have a book signing set up for Saturday, August 17th, at Barnes and Noble bookstore that also is the William and Mary College bookstore. For more time and more details check Appearances at a Glance on the right side of this page.

May 1, 2019 - The 13 Backyard Monsters anthology is now available in paperback. You can buy it at Amazon, same as the Kindle version. I ordered some copies and will have copies of it for the first time at Fandom Fest at the Grissom Library in Newport News May 11th.

Now for exciting news. I just received the first copy of Virginia's Haunted Historic Triangle 2nd Edition: Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown, and Other Haunted Locations along with a bottle of red wine from Schiffer Publishing. That means in 6-8 weeks the rest of the books will be arriving at Schiffer's warehouse, meaning earlier than the July 2019 release date. If you want a copy when it releases, you can preorder it at Schiffer Publishing or Amazon, though Schiffer will get it to you the fastest.

Apr 11, 2019 - I'll be signing copies of Virginia's Haunted Historic Triangle: Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown, and Other Haunted Locations and Haunted Virginia: Legends, Myths, and True Tales Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend at the Visitors Center for Colonial Williamsburg.

I am excited to announce that I, along with authors Susan Schwartz and Carol Smith, will be interviewed about our stories in the nonfiction true ghost stories anthology, Paranormal Encounters, on WTVR-6's Virginia This Morning on Wednesday, April 24, 2019. It will happen sometime between 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. If you cannot watch it or record the show, the video of the interview should be up on their website, Virginia This Morning | WTVR.com that afternoon after 2 p.m.

Mar 2, 2019 - I'm excited, as Paranormal Encounters was first released February 24, 2019, at Amazon in Kindle, and that day became a #1 new release bestseller in Occult Parapsychology! And now, it was released in paperback Friday, March 1st, in paperback. You can find the links at the cover on the Ghost Books page.

Feb 22, 2019 - I'm excited! My third ghost book, Virginia’s Haunted Historic Triangle: Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown, & Other Haunted Locations is going for its second printing. It will have an all new cover and book blurb, twenty additional pages with a new chapter, plus new stories added to other chapters, and ten new photos of ghost images. It releases at the end of July 2019 and is now available for preorder at Amazon and Shiffer. (I would suggest Schiffer, as the books come there first and those preorders are the first shipped out. It will be in your hands faster.) For more information about what's new, click here.

You can now see the cover for the upcoming ghost story anthology that will include two true ghost roes of mine, Paranormal Encounters, published by Anubis Press. View it here.
