Author Denny J. Highben began his career in journalism while still a high school student in Massillon, Ohio, working before classes and on Saturdays for the hometown afternoon paper, “The Evening Independent.” He served as a military journalist during a tour in the United States Marine Corps, then returned to The Independent and worked his way through college at Kent State University. He graduated cum laude with a degree in journalism and history.
Highben and his wife, Sherilyn, decided it was important to raise their children near the family roots, so he remained at The Independent until the size of their family outpaced the size of a local journalist’s paycheck. During his years in journalism, Highben received multiple awards from the Associated Press and United Press International, and was a member of the Newspaper Guild and Investigative Reporters and Editors. He covered everything from crime to local and national politics, and wryly notes that “they are not always the same” (although one of his investigative pieces did get the local mayor charged with a misdemeanor). He traveled to Mexico and Central America for a series of stories, and appeared in an HBO documentary on “Violence in America,” detailing the Ohio background of mass murderer James Oliver Huberty. He also authored a weekly column for eight years, mixing observation and commentary with humor.
Highben’s journalism career was already into its second decade when he met psychic and deep trance sensitive William Allen LePar. Concluding that LePar and the astounding events in his life were legitimate, Highben began researching and writing about LePar and his trance communications. “If someone had predicted I would accept psychic phenomenon as fact before I met LePar, I would have laughed in their face,” he now says. This volume -- “Who Put the Horn on the Unicorn?” -- is a blend of extensive interviews with LePar, remarkable revelations from the LePar/Council trances, and humorous interludes from Highben to weave it all together. In addition to numerous contributions to a newsletter produced by associates of LePar, Highben has edited other writings and written the books, “Three Worlds Lost: The History of Mu, Lemuria and Atlantis” and “On the Brink: The Coming of AIDS.” He is currently working on a biographical piece about LePar.
