I am a SPECIAL GUEST alongside Zak Bagans and his Team on the new, special episode about the Cecil Hotel for “Ghost Adventures” on Discovery Plus (click to see it on YouTube).

It investigates the infamous Cecil Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, and I appear straight away! 

I was there for a couple of nights filming, and I AM IN THE TRAILER TOO (see below)!

I was also a guest alongside Scott Michaels and Patty Negri on the “Ghost Magnet with Bridget Marquardt” podcast https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/ghost-magnet-with-bridget-marquardt/id1451559688 or at https://ghostmagnetpodcast.podbean.com/e/the-cecil-hotel-episode/ while the next True Crime Book Club is on January 21 at 7.30pm PST when we’ll Zoom discuss The Bone Garden: The Chilling True Story Of A Female Serial Killer by William P. Wood.

The Journal interviews me about Gourmet Ghosts, and here’s a link to my LA Weekly article about Jack The Ripper and the Dead & Buried podcast I guested on in Melbourne, Australia, when I went to investigate. Here too is a link to a piece I wrote on the infamous murder of the Black Dahlia.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Other articles I have written recently include one about the 125th anniversary off Griffith Park for American Way magazine, about LA’s Natural History Museum museum taxidermist Tom Bovard for ALTA California, my latest for the LA Times about the aquarium at Union Station (there’s a diver in there every week!) and the whole Saturday LA Times section I wrote about A Beginner’s Guide to Griffith Park.
