I will also be doing once again the Jungle Bell Bazaar at Ecoff elementary School in Chester, Virginia on Saturday, December 7th. You can get the address and times at Appearances at a Glance.

May 21, 2024 - I will be a guest at two Virginia conventions in the beginning of 2025. First one is MarsCon January 17, 18, and 19th.

Both conventions' hotel rooms are set up to reserve and they will go fast, so reserve quickly if you plan to attend either one or both conventions.

May 13, 2024 - I am excited to share some great news. First, there will be a release party on release day of October 15th for Demon Memories at Book Signing Party, meaning a party of food goodies and water, with me doing a reading from the book, then signing copies of the book afterward. Check Appearances at a Glance for time and more.

Second, I am working on a new nonfiction ghost book for Schiffer Publishing. The manuscript will be due November 15, 2024, so the book would be out in either late 2025 or in 2026.

There will be fewer photos as I won't be able to get to some states, but will have photos for Virginia, West Virginia, and some in North Carolina.

If you live in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Tennessee, and Georgia, and yes, even Virginia, North Carolina and West Virginia, not far from the Appalachian Trail and have a story for me, contact me here.
