Host a Neilsen Murder Mystery!

Looking for something different this year? Try a Neilsen Murder Mystery Party! I will come to your home (or local bar, or VFW hall, or anywhere else you want to throw the party) and Host the event, bringing with me unique plots and characters. Choose from among my pre-existing mysteries or let me create one just for you!
