Profile Information

Hometown:
Los Angeles
About Me:
Product Manager by day, writer by night (andor early early morning when I get my ass out of bed to write).
I Am A:
Reader, Writer
Books And Authors I Like:
Jim Thompson, Duane Swierczynski, Donald Westlake, Dahiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, James Elroy...
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Lost, How I Met Your Mother, old Outer Limits and Twilight Zone re-runs, old Star Trek. Seven, Heat, White Sands, Sunset Blvd., lots of film noir, The Grifters, The Innocents, anything directed by Kubrick or John Frankenheimer or Polanski. Joy Ride, Devil in a Blue Dress, Arlington Road, The Conversation, The Parallax View, Three Days of the Condor, Breach, Fracture....

Does Major League Baseball count? (Go Dodgers!).

More to come -- so many good movies out there.

I moved to New York City after graduating from college in the Midwest in 1991 and thereafter began working in book and magazine publishing. I was a fact-checker and staff writer at PC Magazine (Ziff-Davis Publishing) which was at the time THE monster PC publication -- when I joined the editorial staff the average issue was 350 pages! It's now a paltry 64-70 (if that).

I turned to screenwriting as a serious creative outlet in 1999 when I left the craziness of the Dot-Com(bomb) World in the San Francisco Bay Area. I lived in the City by the Bay from 1996 to 1999 and relocated to Los Angeles in 2000 where I currently reside. Somehow I ended up a product management and marketer as my day job, but would eventually love to leave the corporate grind and write fulltime. If James Patterson can do it, I can! (seriously, I know it's a dream, but we all need our dreams to keep us going....)

Look forward to discussion about writing, the writing life and getting published with fellow Crimespace writers!

Best regards,
-Brendon
