coming from Darby Creek/Lerner this fall -- a 3 book fiction series!
Kids often ask me, "What would you do if you met Sasquatch?"
i visited Spiritridge elementary in bellvue in may. Their letters rock.
Looking for ghostly evidence?
Great! My new book, GHOSTLY EVIDENCE from Millbrook Press at Lerner is now available. Explore the basics of paranormal investigation. Explore world famous haunted places and places you've never considered before. Review world famous hoaxes and moments hard to define as anything but mysterious. You can even consider the ghostly moments I experience myself during four years of cross country investigation (see YouTube video below)! The book may give you goose bumps, but it will definitely give you food for afterlife thought!
Read more about it HERE.
Looking for an author visitor?
My 2015/2016 calendar is filling up quickly, but I'd love to do some school visits in September of this year. If you can make that work, I'll give you a discount!
Click HERE for an overview on my presentations and fee structure WITHOUT the discount. And email me if you want to book in September.
Remember, my WONDERS OF WEIRD for 2nd-8th is VERY Common Core friendly, hitting hard on research techniques and critical thinking skills. And it's FUN. Your avid readers will love it, but your reluctant readers will too.
For K-1st, I over a DINOSAUR presentation, complete with fossils your little paleontologists can touch -- including coprolites, dinosaur poops!
If you'd like to know what other hosts think of my visits to their schools and festivals, click HERE.
Thanks for your support and consideration. I could not write the deeply researched books I do without your support. I am GRATEFUL, truly.

What's next? I'm writing my very first fiction books -- three middle grade novels inspired by true animal rescue stories. They will be published by Lerner's Darby Creek imprint in hardback, paperback and e-book, simultaneously. One will be about saving horses, one about saving a whale and one about saving stray dogs. And I'm working on five new nonfiction books, too. Is there something you want me to write? Let me know at email@example.com.
