I receive between 1,000 and 2,000 non-spam emails, daily. (Yes, it’s daunting. There’s no way I can reply to even a small percent of them.)
Before leaving a comment or using the Contact Form (below), read the following to get the fastest answer to most-frequently asked questions. In general, leaving a comment – which only you & I will see (I manually approve comments) – is the best way for media professionals to reach me.
Can I interview you for my school paper – or – can you be my advisor?
I’m sorry, but no. (If anyone claims I’m helping them, I want to be clear: I haven’t worked with students in over four years.) However, I encourage you to continue your research into paranormal topics. We need more, better answers for unexplained phenomena.
Can you speak at my school/university/club?
No, but thank you for inviting me. Due to an overloaded research & writing schedule, I’m not planning personal appearances at this time.
Journalists, media, and producers
Will you be a guest on my podcast, vlog, or radio show?
Thanks, but no. During 2019, I’m revising and updating all of my books. Also, I’m expanding both my free ghost hunting course and my YouTube channel. Meaning: things are hectic here, most of the time. When I’m caught up on my work, I’ll note the change in this FAQ. Thanks again!
I’m a journalist for a major publication. Can I interview you?
Maybe. Leave a comment – which only you & I will see – below. (I manually approve all comments.) That’s the fastest & most reliable way to reach me. Or, you can send me the questions in the Contact form, below. I answer as many requests as I can. (From mid-September through early November, my free time is in short supply.)
I’m a TV/movie producer and I’d like to talk with you.
Yes, I try to find time to speak with producers, when my schedule permits. Leave a comment on this page, which only you and I will see. Include your contact info, and let me know the kind of information you need. My research focus is limited to the U.K., Ireland, and the United States.
Questions from owners of haunted sites
I think my house is haunted. Can you investigate it for me?
No, not at this time. I recommend contacting anyone in the TAPS family of investigators, or anyone reputable. Of course, you could also try reality show producers, if you don’t mind being on TV.
I own a haunted hotel, castle, or stately home. Can you help me document my site and its ghosts?
Yes, this kind of research is among my specialties. I try to find time for it, as often as possible. Leave a comment, which only you & I will see. Or, use the Contact form, below. I’ll reply as soon as I can.
I’ve written a book and I’d like a brief review from you, for my book cover.
If I know you in real life, or we’ve spoken at the same events, I’m happy to at least skim your book and provide a blurb, if I can. (Generally, if I can’t say something nice, I won’t waste your time or mine with a ho-hum blurb.) Use the Contact form to send me a URL to a PDF.
If I don’t know you in real life, describe your background & book in the Contact form, below. I’ll try to get back to you, as soon as I can.
I’m a publisher. Can you write a chapter for one of our books?
Maybe. It depends on the topic, your publishing schedule, and how extensive my research notes (footnotes) need to be. Describe the project in the Contact form, below.
I want to talk with you about my Mandela Effect memories.
Thank you, and I’m honored that you’re interested in my thoughts & opinions. However, I’m still receiving about 1k emails/day about this topic and… well, even that is more than I can reply to. I’m sorry.
