Paulette Cooper has a surprise for Scientology and the residents of a certain Florida town


Your proprietor spent Saturday recovering from the twisted Friday night put on by L. Ron Hubbard’s great-grandson, Jamie DeWolf, which included a three-hour circus at Chez Poulet in San Francisco.

Just before the trouble started, we snapped this photo backstage of DeWolf, “LRH,” and Paulette Cooper. It only got weirder from there.

Our book tour’s leg in California is finished, and we’re pretty exhausted and not really capable of doing much reporting right now. But we did want to fill you in on one small piece of news.

Finally, we can give you some details about next month’s appearance in Florida. We wanted to wait until the venue and time was securely nailed down before saying anything, for reasons you can appreciate. Now, we can reveal that on Sunday June 28, at 2 pm, your proprietor and Paulette Cooper will be making an appearance in none other than…



Yes, just a few blocks away from Scientology’s spiritual headquarters in downtown Clearwater, Florida, we’ll be appearing with Paulette at the Clearwater Public Library, courtesy of the folks at Center for Inquiry-Tampa Bay, who have been so welcoming and have worked hard to make this happen.

See you there on June 28!




NEW: Check out the interactive map to our ongoing tour.

We didn’t get a chance to include photos in our book, The Unbreakable Miss Lovely, so we’re posting them at the Underground Bunker. We’ve created a dedicated page for them, and we hope you go through them all, then come back here and tell us your thoughts!

Copies of the paperback version of ‘The Unbreakable Miss Lovely’ are on sale at Amazon. The Kindle edition is also available, and shipping instantly. Isn’t technology cool.
