I worked in the film business as a screen writer and director for many years. My first feature film, "Love At First Sight", Dan Aykroyd's first film, was invited to Filmex in Los Angeles by the American Film Institute. I directed other movies including "Melanie" starring Glynnis O'Connor, Don Johnson and Paul Sorvino and "Café Romeo" starring Jonathan Crombie and Catherine Mary Stewart. I also wrote and directed a dark comedy called "Home Is Where The Hart Is" starring Leslie Nielsen, Martin Mull and my sister, Valri Bromfield. I directed many episodes of children’s television.
In the 90s I ran a software company. My team and I won the Newmedia Invision Award, Newsweek’s Editor’s Choice Award and Parenting Magazine’s Magic Software Award for a musical painting app for preschoolers called "Paint ‘N’ Play".
But I really wanted to tell larger, strange, funny stories for adults. I've written a few short stories and the darkly comic novels "At Large" and "Nora-9".
I read a lot of hard science (or, at least, I try to). Real science plays into most of my work. I have spent some considerable time thinking about the obesity epidemic and the extinction of the human species; subjects that I think are closely related in a number of peculiar ways.
Here's my official quote: "There are some difficult social problems that are not going to be solved until we can laugh and are no longer frightened by them."
