I love fantasy, science fiction, horror, comedy, and exploitation. That's probably why the early 80's animated film Heavy Metal is one of my favorites. Chances are, if it's sick, twisted, gory, cheesy, trashy, sexual, and monstrous, I'm all over it. I was introduced to Dungeons & Dragons at the age of 10 and H.P. Lovecraft just a few years after that. They both had a profound effect on me. The wife can't fathom why a grown man likes to pretend that he's an eldritch wizard, sword-wielding warrior, or bloodthirsty demon, but oh well. That's her loss. ;) Focusing on paper & pencil, tabletop roleplaying games (like D&D) allows me to finger paint in reality... a strange, new reality created by the interconnected imaginations of myself and my fellow gamers. I love the roleplaying hobby, and writing RPG books is my current passion.
