Hear What People Have to Say:

“The turnout was awesome! Anytime Amanda would like to come back, we would love to have her.”
-John Gaff, Library Director of City of Tonawanda Library

“Amanda was a fantastic speaker! She made the paranormal relatable to an audience with no experience in the field. She also tailored the program specifically to our locale (despite being on the other side of the country) to create a program that was engaging to our patrons.”
-Bailley Kinser, Event Coordinator, Bella Vista Public Library (virtual event)



“The presentation Amanda gave at our museum drew one of our largest audiences ever, and all enthusiastically enjoyed her talk. Not only was her program very interesting and professional, but she graciously stayed after answering questions and talking with attendees. I recommend her highly.”
-Brian McClellan, Curator of Cattaraugus County Museum
