I was born near Nashville, TN, and raised in and around Music City, USA. After graduating from Hillwood High School, I attended Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro. At the time, I never expected to stay in school as long as I did; however, eventually I earned three degrees! I have always enjoyed lecturing and teaching; in my undergraduate days I was interested in making movies, but I also thought about careers in writing and education. Eventually, of course, education won out. That being said, I continue to write and have an interest in the cinema. I was a film critic for a paper in Nashville, ALL THE RAGE, and my articles have also appeared in such publications as MOVIE CLUB, AMERICAN SPIRIT, and THE PULSE in Chattanooga. I am co-author of THE AMAZING, COLOSSAL BOOK OF HORROR TRIVIA: EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT SCARY MOVIES BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK (1999) and I have finished my new book, WOMEN IN THE HORROR FILMS OF VINCENT PRICE. I love literature and writing as well as film; my other interests include history, comic books, cult TV shows (such as FAMILY GUY), music (I'm a rabid fan of the Rolling Stones), travel, and dining out.
