THE HOUSE AT HAUNTED HILL

I wrote the script for this truly amazing (and free!) high-tech home haunt in Woodland Hills, CA. Spooky, not too scary – not a walk-thru – and there’s a spectacular new specter haunting the graveyard.  Here’s some spooky video on YouTube… and an interview with show creator Matt Ford as well.

I’ll post dates of the 2015 Haunting as soon as they’re up, or check the HAHH website.

February 2014

FRONTERA FEST, AUSTIN

I wrote a piece called “Book of the Sun and the Moon” for a project spearheaded by my friend Natalie George. Natalie and some of my cool Austin friends performed it  at Frontera Fest in TX!
