where the writers are

Favorite Books

I like to read Romance, Horror, Urban Fantasy, and Reference books, especially History. My favorites are Stephen King, especially The Dark Tower series, Black House and The Talismin (with Peter Straub). Dean Koontz. Robert R. McCammon, J.D. Robb, Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series, and Preston & Child (Agent Pendergast is a wonderful character). Of course Poe and Lovecraft.

I enjoy watching movies of all shapes and sizes. Casablanca, Maltese Falcon, To Have and Have Not, anything Jane Austin, old Universal Monster pics, anything Vincent Price, Jane Eyre, old Hammer films, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Edward Scissorhands, The Chronicles of Narnia, Napoleon Dynamite, and Shawn of the Dead.
