His syndicated 1990’s column 'Magic and the Unknown' ran for six years in multiple local papers in his home state.

The true haunting of Lindley St., in Bridgeport, CT., was one ghost story that stuck in his mind. After peeling back the layers and obtaining more evidence than ever before, there finally is adequate information to find out what really happened at Lindley St.
