“This is a book for anyone who enjoys ghost stories with thorough detail to add believability. When he writes of his encounters with the various ghosts, you’ll surely want to keep the lights on; so immediate you feel like you’re standing beside the no-nonsense, ex-Navy Di Orio ready to do battle with his ghostly adversaries.”

- Michael Norman, 
Author of Haunted Heartland and Haunted Wisconsin

Join us as we welcom Don Di Orio to the stage where he will be guided by Regina Becker of Regina's 7 Pillars and Mike Duplais of M&B Global Solutions.  Together both Regina and Mike will moderate this spooky ghost story event.  Regin spent time with Don at Cormier Station as a medium where she had an experience of her own. Mike is Don's editor and publisher and as a result knows the story very well.  This will be an evening of spooky too close to home stories that will leave you wondering What Really Happened at Cormier Station.
