Chicken Ranch rides again!

It's been a while since I shared anything related to Inside the Texas Chicken Ranch here, but I've got a couple of upcoming events folks in the Houston area might find of interest. This Saturday, January 26, I'll be guest speaker for the Baytown Historical Preservation Association's 2019 Saturday History Lecture Series. My presentation will be held in the big red barn meeting room of the Republic of Texas Plaza, 5117 N. Main Street. Doors open at 9:30 a.m., with the program beginning at 10 p.m. I'll give an entertaining and informative audio/visual presentation filled with rare, vintage photographs and artifacts, followed by the always-popular question-and-answer session. Those are invariably a hoot. Books will be available for purchase, and I'll be happy to sign anything and everything. As a bonus, the good folks there will have the historic buildings at the Republic of Texas Plaza open for free tours afterward.

If you can't make Baytown this Saturday, you're not out of luck--the Bellaire Historical Society has booked me to give a presentation on the Chicken Ranch Thursday, February 14. Yes, that means you can learn all about the Chicken Ranch on Valentine's Day! What could be more romantic? The presentation will be held in the CenterPoint Energy Community Room at 7001 5th Street in Bellaire. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the program beginning at 7:00.

If you know of a civic or business group in need of a speaker who can entertain and enthrall audiences with tales of a popular, yet widely misunderstood episode of Texas history, I am accepting bookings for the remainder of 2019!

Inside the Texas Chicken Ranch: The Definitive Account of the Best Little Whorehouse is available from both and It's also available as an ebook in the following formats: Kindle, Nook, Google Play, iBooks and Kobo.
