I love to write.


I especially like to tell stories that take us into imaginative worlds and introduce us to interesting people—all while bringing us into a better understanding of ourselves and our world.

“Tremendous use of dialogue – a rare gift in today’s entertainment. Remarkable skill in maintaining and advancing multiple fantasy story lines. Humor is subtle, clever and enjoyable. Creativity, color, action, and character development show a compelling capacity beyond Ian’s age and experience.”

Most exceptions to this rule deal with something called … Continue reading Why Bad Writing is Killing Death – Part 2

Why Bad Writing is Killing Death – Part 1

Then they get resurrected somehow—twenty seconds later (Maleficent II), later in the same movie (almost any Marvel movie), in the next movie (Pirates of the Caribbean II), in the last installment of the franchise (Ep. IX of Star Wars), etc. … Continue reading Why Bad Writing is Killing Death – Part 1
