I've been writing since I was old enough to hold a crayon but some years passed before I got paid to put words on the page.
I started out writing entertainment pieces for magazines. I was published in Cult Times, Star Trek Magazine, Young Rider
and the Official Buffy the Vampire Slayer
magazine. I also had a regular column on TV and SciFi toys in Toy Shop
and wrote additional articles for Collector's Mart, Non-Sport Trading Cards
and Fine Scale Modeler.
I also wrote numerous articles for Inside Kung Fu
. These were interviews with actors and stuntmen and it led to some of my favorite meet-ups.
From there, I moved into books. I wrote TV Toys and the Shows That Inspired Them
. Also, two licensed tie-in books, one for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and one for Pokemon.
At that point, I moved on to the web where I was a staff writer for CollectingChannel.com. Since then, I've written for hundreds of websites including BuddyTV, SheKnows, SFUniverse, DVDVerdict, FilmTrailers, PayScale, MarketingPilgrim.com and apps for small business for Entrepreneur.com.
I also write about TV on my own blog: TV of the Absurd
Here are some of the places you can find me on the web (past and present).
