Last Saturday, October 21, 2017, I held an intimate presentation and book signing event at King Richard's Antique Center in Whittier, CA. Was a lot of fun and I was able to answer many questions. Books are still available for sale. Just ask the check-out desk where to find them.
On October 19th, Bizarre L.A. met with "Bizarre States," a podcast hosted by Andrew Bowser and Jessica Chobot. I highly recommend that you follow their show...if you haven't already!
Last Saturday. September 30, 2017, about 30 showed up at the Glen Tavern Inn in Santa Paula, CA, for a special presentation and book signing. My guest was Brandon Alvis with Apra Paranormal. We discussed haunted Southern California hotels as well as Alvis' new webseries, Ephemera. It seems as though the ghosts may have made their presence known. Sensor alarms were repeatedly triggered throughout the building during our entire presentation.
Last September 23, 2017, I gave a presentation and signed books at Dark Delicacies, located at 3512 W Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA 91505. A sizable crowd turned out and we had a great time.
Susan Slaughter of Ghost Hunters International and Steve Gonsalves of Ghost Hunters dropped by for a visit. I think you can tell that I was thrilled to see them both. I took my first selfie! Thanks Dark Delicacies for hosting the event!
On Thursday, August 24th 2017, I gave a presentation entitled “What Makes Los Angeles History So Bizarre" at the (haunted) Andrés Pico Adobe Museum. Over 70 people showed up and every chair was filled. Thanks to all of you who came out to meet me and a special thanks to those who bought the book. Hope to see many of you again soon. Please patronize the Adobe at 10940 Sepulveda Blvd, Mission Hills, CA 91345.
