An Evening To Benefit The Humane Society Serving Clark County


Over the years, I’ve given presentations at a wide variety of locations for an even wider variety of reasons. But the ones that are nearest and dearest to my heart are the ones that are done for a great cause. It’s a truly amazing and humbling experience to look out across an audience and know that we’ve all come together to share some strange and spooky stories and to help those less fortunate.

That’s why I’m so happy to announce my next appearance: The Strange & Spooky World of James A. Willis—An Evening to Benefit the Humane Society Serving Clark County.

This special, one night event will take place on Saturday, April 29th at The Heritage Center: 117 S Fountain Ave, Springfield, OH 45502. Proceeds to benefit the Humane Society Serving Clark County.

The schedule of events is as follows:

  • Doors open at 6:30 pm
  • Refreshments and Appetizers (by donation) from 6:30 pm until 7:45 pm
  • Presentation begins at 7:45 pm
  • Book signing and meet and greet following the presentation

This will be a special evening in that I will be sharing my personal stories and experiences from my favorite strange and spooky locations that I have visited over the years. Plus, as if you needed any additional incentive, this will mark the very first time that I will be talking about some of the locations I visited for my upcoming book, Central Ohio Legends And Lore.

Currently Scheduling for 2015: Don’t Delay!


It seems a bit odd to be talking Halloween in February, but since when have I done things the traditional way?

Anyway, I have begun scheduling appearances for both myself and The Ghosts of Ohio in 2015. I am currently in negotiations with over 30 locations and while few have yet to be officially booked, most are all but a done deal at this point. For obvious reasons, most are looking for presentations and/or appearances in October.

My point is this: if you are even remotely considering scheduling  me for an event, especially for something in October, please reach out to me now! We can work out the details as we go along, but the longer you wait, the better the chance that someone is going to snatch the date you want out from under you. And that would make me sad.

If you remember, I made the decision to take last October off, which means there are a lot of hungry strange and spooky fans out there who can’t wait to see me and The Ghosts again. Plus, this year’s presentation will be filled with all-new videos, audio, and photos. Special guests are also planned and yes, I will even be bringing parts of the Strange & Spooky Museum on the road with me! And if that’s not enough, there’s a special announcement coming soon that is going to create quite the buzz through the Ohio paranormal community. In other words, shoot me an e-mail now and get something scheduled…or be sad later.
