THE BOOKS

 

Thanks for stopping by.  What started out as a way to compile some of the ghost stories and ghostlore that I wrote about in a feature story when I was a reporter for a daily newspaper has turned into a series of books. Whether you're a complete cynic, a skeptic, or a believer, I think there's something to our fascination with the unknown. Here are a few of my books that explore that area.

Haunted Rock & Roll

Haunted Rock and Roll covers rock’s entire paranormal legacy, allowing you to explore the famous faces, places, and legends that define one of the biggest cultural movements of all time.
