I now have a YouTube channel. Please subscribe if you can! I will be posting occasional videos in which I talk about issues and topics related to my book (cemeteries, grief, death, funerals, etc.). I just want to have a bigger “personal” presence on the web, even though I’m not a huge fan of having my face out there, ha! I’m really comfortable in front of crowds and regularly teach a large lecture class at a state university, but I guess I feel a little self-conscious talking into a camera. Still a little weird for me!
Introducing my first video, in which I have a couple of theories on why celebrity deaths seem to affect us so much. What was the first celebrity death you remember?

Just read about you in American Cemetery August 2013, I will be looking for your book! The cemetery life is just about all I know, it has also taken its toll on me. I guess I was the kreepy kid who lived in a cemetery! At 48 I’m still working the grave yard shift (LOL)!!!! The only business, that no matter how much money you make, you are always going under. I’m not a green thumb, I’m always planting but nothing grows! I would never want to hurt anyone’s feelings, so please excuse my dry humor! I’ve truly been here way to long!!!
Thanks for getting in touch! And thanks for letting me know that issue of American Cemetery is now available.
You sound a lot like my dad and others I knew who worked in the cemetery business with your sense of humor 🙂
If you get my book, I think a lot of it will be very familiar to you.
