Monstro Bizarro: ‘Bigfoot vs. D.B. Cooper’ Movie

on April 16, 2014 | Leave a comment

Has the fine art of sasquatch cinema finally jumped the proverbial shark? This upcoming film from David DeCoteau’s Rapid Heart Pictures certainly begs the questions. In BIGFOOT VS. D.B. COOPER, the legendary monster is pitted against one of the world’s most infamous mystery figures: D.B. Cooper. (For those that don’t remember Dan “D.B.” Cooper, he hijacked a commercial airliner in 1971, demanded a ransom of $200,000 cash – which he received – and then parachuted into the Washington/Oregon wilderness never to be seen again.)

Monstro Bizarro: The True Story of the Lizard Man

on October 21, 2013 | 1 Comment

I’m proud to announce that my new book, LIZARD MAN: THE TRUE STORY OF THE BISHOPVILLE MONSTER, is now available from Anomalist Books.

From the swamplands near Bishopville, South Carolina, come reports of a seven-foot-tall, scaly humanoid creature the locals call the “Lizard Man.” Over the years, the creature has been seen by numerous witnesses, including a teenager who claimed it attacked him one night near a remote area called Scape Ore Swamp. The young man’s testimony and physical evidence was so compelling, it not only launched a serious investigation by the local sheriff’s office but an all-out monster hunt that drew hundreds of people to the small town.

Monstro Bizarro: Top 10 Cryptids

on October 11, 2013 | 1 Comment

Cryptozoology, which is defined as “the study of unknown animals,” includes a vast menagerie of creatures which are said to exist, but cannot be proven. Some of these creatures – known as cryptids – are well known to the general public and some are not. Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and Chupacabra are undoubtedly the most famous examples, but they are not the only beasts which lurk in the shadows of our reality.

The following is a list of cryptids which I feel are the most popular and recognizable.

‘Lizard Man’ Book

on October 1, 2013 | 2 Comments

It’s October 1, so I thought it would be an appropriate time to reveal the cover art for my upcoming book to be released on Halloween. This time I take on the case of the legendary “Lizard Man” from Bishopville, South Carolina to recount the complete, fascinating story and to shine new light on one of the most bizarre and hair-raising encounters with an unknown creature. During my research trip to Bishopville, I discovered that there’s much more to the story than I first realized… and much more than meets the eye regarding the media’s portrayal of this modern-day ‘creature from the black lagoon.’ All in all, it made for a fascinating research trip and resulted in a book that I think everyone will truly enjoy.
