I'm a proud Canadian who actually lived in the United States of America for two years in the '80's and still have many good friends in Brooklyn, Long Island, Yonkers, Jonesboro and Hot Springs. Now I am in London, Ontario and visit Toronto about once a month but I still manage to go to the USA about once or twice a year. Its a nice place to visit but Canada is my home.
I was born in 1955 (do the math to figure out my age) and realized that while growing older is inevitable, growing up is optional. I really am my mother's fifth child with three brothers and three sisters, but due to circumstances beyond my control I'm down one brother. That is why I write, because life is too short not to do the things you like. One of these days I am going to try my hand at writing novels and I will admit that fan fiction helped me tap into a writing community I never realized existed on such a huge scale.
I read mysteries, science fiction and romances and have discovered that most good books have an element of romance in them. Who knew? I watch NCIS, Grimm, The First 48, Ghost Adventures and Covert Affairs. I also love old movies, especially musicals, film noir and Universal horror. I will also blame Alice for getting me hooked on comic books again. Once a Daredevil fan, always a Daredevil fan, I guess. I listen to Jazz, Swing, Big Band but will listen to just about any music before I pass judgment.
Reading a very good book on writing it asked the question "What are the three books you can read over and over again. After a lot of thought I came up with Jane Eyre, Song of Bernadette and Huckleberry Finn. There are other books I keep no matter how often I trade in my already read ones at G and A Books and they all have the same thing in common. All my heroes overcome nearly impossible odds before they reach their rewards. Even now, characters with physical disabilities or psychic pain and how they overcome these difficulties are a large part of my reading. Jeffery Deaver, Baynard Kendrick, and George C. Chesbro (I miss you, George. You actually got me to drink Scotch.) all sit together on my bookshelf along with Ian Rankin and P. D. James. So I read fan fiction for Blind Justice, Daredevil, House, NCIS, Ironside, Once Upon a Time in Mexico and now Covert Affairs. I guess I will always root for the underdog because every dog has his day... eventually.
