  7. Read my book here

  8. Bio

    I was born in Australia in the Blue Mountains. I spent large portions growing up between those frigid towns and the humid rain-forests of far north Queensland. I moved around a lot and changed schools often as a young child of a single parent. My brother and I were undoubtedly a handful for our poor mother.
    
    I travelled all over the world but after numerous years in security jobs I decided to join the Australian Army. A day came when I realised that kind of life was not for ...

  11. Now and Then

    I have a dark past that always hangs around.
    In the shadows, it forever haunts me.
    I deal with it from time to time when certain situations arise.
    I always feared it would get in the way of being in a relationship.
    Luckily for me I found such an amazing man who is more than willing to deal with it with me.
    He is there whenever I need to turn to someone and let my emotions flow.

    What happened in my past made me shut down completely.
    I became ...

  14. I Creator The Series is off to Hollywood

    I did what I could with the story bible, got input from two people, sent the bible with photos from I, Creator 2 - Goddess Of The Hunt as part of the "Look Book" used for the pitch, and a screenplay along for the ride. In the cover page email, I included links to the 22 minute pilot entered into the NYTVF, the promo page, and a YT clip of the proposed stunt coordinator's work in action.

    Fingers crossed.

  15. Redefining Horror—Can You Face It?

    How do you define horror? The dictionary defines it as

    An intense feeling of fear, shock, or disgust OR A thing causing such a feeling.

    In truth, is that all? Can you look at movies of demonic possession or nights of the living dead and call that horror? What about Friday the 13th movies or I am Legend? Of course. But, there's much more to it, I believe.

    I've never been a fan of the horror genre—it scares the hell out of me. But, what I've seen or read ...
