I was invited to speak at the BEYOND EXPO at the amazing Queen Mary in Long Beach, California from March 13 – 16th, 2014. This is going to be a fantastic event, with great

paranormal speakers AND a film festival and tons of exciting activities. Please come and see this great beauty at the harbor…the ship, silly! Oh, and come and see me, too! I’ll post more as details come in!

The Continuing EKHO Saga…

As my son and I begin to think about writing Book Two of our EKHO series, we are also dealing with the realities of life that will no doubt find their way into the plot line, just as they did in the first book. Real life is the best fodder for telling stories, no matter how fantastical those stories are, because at their core, all stories are about the human condition. My son and I have been through an awful lot lately, and much of it has been very difficult and trying. But we hope to use those challenges and trials and tribulations and somehow, through stories, help other kids and adults who are going through similar situations. These are the stories of our lives…

Another One Down…

I love those words, because to me they mean that I finished and turned in another book, this time “VIRAL MYTHOLOGY” with Larry Flaxman. It’s off to New Page Books and will be on shelves in January of 2014. But…there is a strange depression that follows the completion of any book, no matter how hard it was to research and write. You feel like a huge weight is off your shoulders, to be sure, but you also realize that what you were immersed in for the last several months has now come to an end and it’s time to breathe before immersing yourself into something new. That is a scary time…contemplating the next big project. But deadlines call and publishers await and soon, another one will be down.
