I'll be performing at The Overlook Hotel. The one and only hotel from The Shining.
You heard me right. The 1st Annual Stanley Film Festival is taking place in the hotel that inspired Stephen King to pen his classic novel. I can't believe this is happening, but I've hit the performance/literary/cinema trifecta… Not only will our film HENLEY be screening in part of their shorts program, but THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW will be performing in the haunted halls of the hotel itself. And not only that! I'll also be presenting a family-friendly reading of my new middlegrade novel HOMEROOM HEADHUNTERS. I'm going out of my mind.
The Hollywood Reporter did a little write-up on the festival with a mention of me. You can read about it here: http://bit.ly/Z6vJzz
The hotel plays Kubrick's The Shining on constant 24/7 rotation in room #237. I'm so in. I have died and gone to haunted hotel heaven.

“[There is] a new generation of theater artists reared on a diet of vampires, zombies and charming serial killers. Call this movement the Theater of Blood… At the forefront is Clay McLeod Chapman, whose “Pumpkin Pie Show” channels the spirit of H. P. Lovecraft.”
