Experience and Events

My writing career has enabled me to do some traveling in order to attend and cover some events and see some significant vampire sights. I was fortunate to network and meet some great people along the way.

In August 2014, I travelled from Canada to London, England in search of vampires. Well, the Highgate vampire that is. I visited the cemetery and went on a tour and also was able to conduct some research at the British Library.

On March 28, 2015 I travelled to Forks, Washington for the 10 year anniversary of the release of the book Twilight. I interviewed the mayor, a member of their Chamber of Commerce, and an event organizer. I even met their number one fan and stayed in a Twilight themed hotel room.
