The annual VA Paraquest paranormal conference takes place April 26/27, 2013, in Lynchburg, Virginia. I have been invited to speak at this event which promises to be "drama free" (I wouldn't want it any other way!) although my topic will most certainly rock the boat a bit. Friday night includes a meet-and-greet session to ask some early questions of the speakers. There are a lot of other great speakers on hand for Saturday and I'm sure this will be a great experience for anyone at any level of interest or involvement in the paranormal. This type of conference is geared toward sharing knowledge as well as networking and is not focused on the "big names" of the Para-drama television shows.
