This Illustrated Lecture is well-researched, with details on the journey Bishop Nicholas made to become our current-day Santa Claus. It also includes many recognizable images and poems. Mrs.

To ensure the award-winning series debut "Whispers in Black Willow" was as haunting as possible, author James Alan Ross set out to experience what his character,  Dylan Klaypool, would: real ghosts. A string of paranormal investigations, including the world famous Rolling Hills Asylum in East Bethany, New York resulted in the capturing of extraordinary paranormal evidence. James will read from his novel and share audio and visual evidence   gathered on these haunting expeditions.
