I am the author of a series of entertaining dining and compatibility guides featuring vampires, zombies and werewolves. The books come complete with colorful and imaginative illustrations, and are full of tasty recipes. These seriously humorous guides combine the art of personality typing and dating advice with a delicious and extensive collection of recipes, including appetizers, undead breads, main courses, sides and decadent desserts.
As a small child, my father related how he once spent two and half days traveling by train and singing songs with Bela Lugosi. This adventure captured my imagination, and these books are dedicated to that memory. I am a former Chicago restaurateur and currently a licensed psychologist and social worker, in practice since 1985. I’ve also created therapy programs in creative writing and the arts. I bring my keen insight into personality types to this series of monster dining and dating books.
The Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, where I am from, has a thriving scene of supernatural and fantasy fandom and entertainment. The Zombie Pub Crawl is the longest running event of its kind in the USA, and we have bars dedicated to the macabre, like Donny Dirk’s Zombie Den The Twin Cities area boasts several internationally popular fan conventions , such as CONvergence, an annual science fiction and fantasy convention which routinely draws 6000 to 7000 attendees.
Coming up in Fall of 2015, I’ll be attending the Zombie Pub Crawl, as well as other events. A book release gala is planned for 2016 too! To keep current on all the exciting events and books I have planned, please sign up for my mailing list by clicking the menu button on the upper right.
