When it comes to writing my books, I’m a plotter. I plot everything in my head before ever taking it to the computer. The finished product may not be the same as what was in my head, but I need to know that I have enough of the right material to see the book from page one until the end.

I don’t know that it’s necessarily a good thing that I have a lot of started projects going on at once. But I do like to be able to work on what’s hot in my mind at the time.

When it comes to movies, I have a huge stash of Alfred Hitchcock movies. I also love 1930’s and 1940’s movies. Of the more recent films I’ve acquired, Auto Focus, with Greg Kinnear, is extraordinary. It’s based on the Robert Graysmith book, The Murder of Bob Crane. For those who aren’t familiar with Bob Crane, he starred on the 1960’s comedy, Hogan’s Heroes. I believe Hogan’s Heroes premiered the year I was born, but I can remember watching it in repeats as a child in the 1970’s. On the surface, Bob Crane was this great looking, Disney movie starring, kind of guy. But he lived a very dark personal life which most people agree attributed to his untimely death. A murder which has never been solved.

I recently came upon the movie, May, or the Sci-Fi channel. It’s an independent horror film with the tagline, If you can’t find a friend, make one… It’s a fascinating film. Two other films I recently bought on DVD are 28 Days, with Sandra Bullock, and Napoleon Dynamite. I’m also interested in seeing an independent movie called, Love Comes to The Executioner.
