Last year I added something new. I started offering posters to libraries to help promote my appearances. The feedback has been great! So, I think this is something I'll continue doing. I want my show at your library to be a success just as much as you do. If you want me to do an over-the-phone interview with a local radio station to help promote the show, I'd be happy to do that! Before I made magic my full-time job, I was in radio broadcasting for over 16 years, so I know my

As always, you can expect lots of audience participation, family-friendly humor and brand-new magic. I do want to clue you in on something. One of the tricks I do utilizes fake smoke. I a
Today I just added two new states to my Summer Reading Program tour. Up until now my tally was 62 shows at 50 libraries in 3 states. What a difference a day makes. Now I'm at 65 shows at 53 libraries in 5 states. I'm so happy to add Vermillion, South Dakota and Sabetha, Kansas to my itinerary. I was also very happy to add the Alice M.
