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.
