My first horror movie was From Hell It Came!, I was two years old. Then, Trilogy of Terror with the late Karen Black. When I was three years old my parents brought me to see Jaws at the theater. I fall in love with that movie. And I found out my mother had a Readers Digest Condensed Book of Jaws by Peter Benchley. I begged her to read it to me all the time, until she told me that I needed to learn to read so I could read the book myself. In third grade, I was reading Jaws while the other kids were reading kid books. I saw Texas Chainsaw Massacre at the drive in I was age three. Then, I saw The Car staring James Brolin when I was age five. I loved the look of that demonic car.
Then came a little film called Star Wars. It changed my life. But The Car oddly enough is what started me writing. At age six I wrote a book for The Car it was about 4 page. In the third grade, I began writing more often and found it was to my liking and that my peers seemed to like it.
In the early 1980s, three horror films came that made an impact on me. An American Werewolf In London, The Howling, and Wolfen. Thus, my fascination with werewolves began.
When I met my girlfriend and lifemate, we discovered we both liked the same music and had an afinity for these creatures of the night. She begged me to write her a medieval werewolf story. We agreed that it shouldn't be the "typical" tired, traditional tale, so we thought, the werewolf always gets a bad wrap, so let's make him the hero, and thus, "Moonwarriors" was born.
