About Randy Noble

I grew up on movies, couldn't get enough. I'll be a movie junkie for the rest of my life, no question. Books came after, and then writing, my imagination spurred at a very young age from the wonders of the silver screen, the small screen, and now the multitude of options available to us. Movies, books, and video games are my go to entertainment sources. And I almost always listen to music when I write, typically alternative or instrumental.

And what do I like? What inspires my stories? I couldn't pick a favorite movie, there's just too many. Genre-wise I'm all over the map, but preference toward action, science-fiction, and horror. Some movies I love, off the top of my head as I write this, are: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Alien, Aliens, The Matrix, The Shawshank Redemption, Guardians of the Galaxy, Edge of Tomorrow, Saving Private Ryan, Dark City, Apollo 13, Glory, End of Watch, Drive, Dredd, Serenity (and the Firefly series), The Dark Knight, Jaws, Seven, Minority Report, Inception, all the Harry Potter movies (and the books -- love them), The Thing (1982), and Tombstone (so many more). Regarding the Harry Potter books: There doesn't seem to be a lot of men who get into these (that I know) but these stories take me away and I can re-read them again and again -- for me, they bring back the magic of childhood. Stephen King (although I haven't read anything from him lately) has many stories that I enjoy, Robert R. McCammon, J.A. Konrath, Black Crouch, Margaret Atwood, Dean Koontz, and there are many more, basically anyone who can tell an intriguing story that grabs me from the get go.

My hope is you'll enjoy my stories as much as I do when I create and nurture them. I've only one novel at this time (I'm working on another) and it gestated in my head for a long time; they don't let me go until I get the words out so I think about them for a while, projecting in my noggin in an infinite loop until it's realized. My goal is to take you, the reader, away on a trip, a journey, and hopefully one you care about as I do when I write.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada is my home, and my desire at this moment (and has been for a long time) is to write my stories for a living. I haven't gotten there yet, but I'm working on it one word at a time, and, with any luck, I'll get a fan or two who enjoys my particular brand of story telling.

It was an enjoyable read and I feel like your main character was pretty realistic as far as his personality and thoughts go.

Some of the gadgetry, particularly the Jeep's dashboard functions seemed a little too James Bond for me, and I would have enjoyed some explanation for the phone call's origin and perhaps some explanation of what came over the bridge.

You definitely have strong skills in imagery and in engaging your reader. Well done!

This was one of those stories where I had to stop reading at night so I could wait until it was daylight. LOL The beginning is set up with a guy on a cell phone who gets this mysterious phone call warning him that he needs to follow the caller's instructions or else he'll end up dead.

I do agree with the other reviewer who said that unlike other stories where the main character does something stupid, this guy was smart. I can't say too much without giving the story away, but let's say that what was coming was indeed as freaky as one would expect.

Now I want to read everything by this author. I hope he continues to write more!

This was a real fun story.

All I could think about while reading this was when you watch a thriller or a horror movie and you're yelling at the screen calling people idiots for not doing what YOU would be doing. Over the Bridge was one of the very few stories I can remember that the main character in a horror setting wasn't a complete idiot and did everything the right way, the way I would do it, haha!

I also liked the little time warp aspect too. It added a little more fun and intrigue to the plot. It was equally insignificant as it was significant ... I liked that. After reading this story, that seemingly ridiculous sentence will make more sense.

Good job, Randy - 5 stars!
