    I am planning to use your book in a lesson plan for fourth graders where they will use a Google Trek map to travel around to parts of Weird Colorado sites and phenomenon and find information to create a graphic organizer and timeline based on what they find. Thank you for writing a wonderfully interesting and quirky book.

      How swell!

      I plan on updating the blog more frequently, so stay tuned. And if the kids hear of anything that wasn’t in the book, encourage them to ask me about it.

      The most fun I had was looking up old rumors and urban myths — the truth really is generally stranger.

      Are you in Colorado?

    I purchased your book months after moving here. Just wanted to say great job with the writing on it! I’m with a local paranormal team in Colorado Springs called RMRIPP and would love to contribute whatever I can based off of prior investigation sites me and my team have been to. Thanks!
