Tonight I'll be doing an author reading at the Oregon Ghost Conference's Penning the Paranormal event. It's from 7-8:30pm Pacific Time (10-11:30 Eastern). It's a Zoom event hosted by Jeff Davis (one of the Weird Washington and Weird Oregon authors) and you can sign up here. It's free, and looks like it will be fun.
Yesterday I was on the Paranormal Prowlers Podcast, which is the first podcast I've done in ages. I talked a little about how I came across Weird NJ, the Weird Ghosts book, Clinton Road, and my experiences with sleep paralysis.

As you can … Continue reading Home State Hauntings now in print
One of the ghost stories that I wrote for Weird Encounters, about the Old Bernardsville Library, was republished today in the Asbury Park Press. It's fun to see my byline there, though the Press is veering pretty far north of their territory for this story. Fine by me! I'm grateful for the exposure. The story … Continue reading A ghostly byline in the Asbury Park Press
I was pleasantly surprised last week when I saw that Weird N.J. released Home State Hauntings, a collection of ghost stories from around New Jersey. Some are new, and some are the best of what they've published in the magazine, books, and special editions over the years. It's the magazine's first true foray into eBook … Continue reading Home State Hauntings
