Interview at the Streator Times

The Streator Times posted an interview with me today about the May issue of the Legends and Lore of Illinois (on the “hatchet lady” of Moon Point Cemetery).

My favorite quote: “For the record, no one threw hatchets at me while I was there.”

Pictures from the DeKalb Book Signing

Thank you to everyone who came out and helped organize the book signing on Friday and Saturday night. Thank you to Willy Adkins and John Everson and also the guy who booked the event. I met a lot of cool people, saw some live music and a fashion show. It’s not every day that you get such a variety of artistic mediums displayed in one place. Here are a couple of pictures from Saturday night:

I’m happy to present you with a short Q&A I had with him about his magazine Black Oak Presents and what part photography plays in it.”

On the set of Fear in the Flatlands

Filmmaker John Specht asked me to come down to Coles County on Saturday to be interviewed for another segment for his project “Fear in the Flatlands”.  This time, they got some footage of me in a van being driven through the streets of Charleston.  It was a great time and I’m excited about this project.
