I’ve been asked by one of my fans to post my upcoming speaking engagements for September and October here. The truth is, I’ve been asked by my mom. Because of my interest in classic horror, this is an unusually busy time for me. Here you go, Mom! Love you!

10AM, Folsom Public Library
2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley.
Come hear hair-raising stories about the turbulent life of Mary Shelley and the monster she created. Mary drew on her own interest in science and her experience with abandonment and loss to create the first science fiction novel – one which continues to terrify readers today. We will explore her life and the culture or the Romantics as well as the novel itself.
