"These books are for everyone who ever built an Aurora monster model, watched Castle Films condensed classics on their 8mm projector, scratched lightning into their own cinematic spectacles, circled the movies in next week's TV Guide that were described as "melodrama," drew werewolves and robots on their desk at school, or had your mother wake you in the dead of night to watch that Sci-fi movie that was only shown once a year ...and did these things long before it was hip to be square."

"On Saturday night, June 4th, I was inducted into the Rondo Award "Monster Kid Hall of Fame." I was presented the plaque by Rondo Award curator David Colton, who prefaced it with a short introduction that moved me greatly. Then after I had finished my acceptance speech (and almost made it through without my voice cracking with emotion!), the crowd astounded me by rising up for a standing ovation. And how special to have this take place at the convention where my fan base began over twenty years ago. I am truly honored."


NOW AVAILABLE from BearManor Media!

"MONSTERS, MOVIES & ME" is a book about my experiences making the crazy cult horror movies I starred in during the late 1980's. It will feature many never-before-seen BTS photos from ZOMBIE NIGHTMARE, BLACK ROSES, ROCK N' ROLL NIGHTMARE and my other films. It will also cover my later work as a screenwriter and Disney animation artist.
