Out and About - My Recent Public Appearances at the Dark History Convention 2015

Getting Set Up
Wow has it been a really busy past few weeks. I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Dark History Con in Illinois again this year. This amazing convention happens each year in Champagne, Illinois and serves as a source of information on history's most frightening happenings. I had a great time meeting other true crime writers, film makers, historians and so much more.


I was so excited to meet Judith Yates. She lives in Nashville, only about an hour from me, and wrote the book When Nashville Bled, a fantastic book about Paul Dennis Reid, a local murderer.

I also met Linda Lee King who wrote Sticks and Stones and Broken Bones: What a Charmed Life I Lead. It tells the harrowing tale of her life growing up and the horrors se witnesses and lived through. 

Can I just say OMFG! I met John Borowski, filmmaker extraordinaire and went fan girl all over him. 

Meeting the incredible artist Jeff Gaither was such a pleasure. He and his wife are truly amazing people and I has such fun talking with them.
