Who is your favorite author / screenwriter / director / etc?

Authors: Stewart O'Nan, Greg Isles, Christopher Moore, Terry Pratchett, John Irving, and Charles Dickens just to name a few. My other writing influences are singer/songwriters...Storytellers like Bob Schnieder, Patty Griffin, Emerson Hart(of the band Tonic), and screenwriter/director: Anthony Minghella Everyone always cites The English Patient or The Talented Mr. Ripley, but by far the best script/movie by him was Truly, Madly, Deeply, and James Cameron.

Are you involved in any writing (or writing-related) activities you'd like to mention?

Plenty, but I'm in the "maybe I'll let somebody read this" stage.

What genres / forms do you enjoy writing; Reading?; what would you like to try?

I'm drawn to adult drama...human fiction--the things we do ourselves and those we love. I love comedy as well, especially black comedy. I also enjoy coming of age stories and the fantasy genre.
