Falling author Drew Turney realised he wanted to be a storyteller when he laid down on his lounge room floor to write a short story on an A5 sheet of paper using his mother's manual typewriter, circa 1985.
That morphed into his first major work – an epic, six-part science fiction saga about a kid who goes into space to help fight in an intergalactic battle (yes, he realises how much that sounds like the premise of The Last Starfighter, which is one of his favourite movies).
In the ensuing years he's written a romance novel, an emotional courtroom drama, three fifths of a grand conspiracy thriller, a near-future military actioner, a social justice story about a student who stands up for his rights, a fictional depression memoir about a guy who goes to Africa to be an aid worker and countless more false starts and half finished projects.
After spending the first half of his working life in jobs completely unrelated to writing he figured he'd get nowhere without some professional backing or publishing credits, so in the late 90s he became a freelance newspaper and magazine journalist. He's since had in excess of a million words published in print and online all over the world (see drewturney.com)
He's a devoted filmgoer and entertainment reporter, writing about movies on his blog at filmism.net, and is a regular contributor for media as varied as film news site Moviehole.net, science periodical Cosmos Magazine and US movie industry trade publication Variety.
