“To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.” – Kurt Vonnegut
Deep In The Keep is a platform for my imagination, to share my thoughts on writing, gaming, movies, and who knows what else, as I strive to live a creative life, and connect with similar souls. I have written fantasy and horror screenplays, and while placing in screenwriting contests, have yet to be produced. I completed my first novel, a fantasy thriller, which I am preparing for publication.
I have loved stories of the fantastic since I was able to read and turn on the TV. New York’s Channel 9, WOR, 4:30 movies introduced me to Godzilla, King Kong (’33), Planet of the Apes, Them!, and many more. Creature Feature and Chiller gave me an appreciation of horror, and a dreadful fear of the dark for nearly a decade. I was captivated by Star Trek, Twilight Zone, and The Outer Limits. I entered the written worlds of The Lord of The Rings and Dune. I spent more time on the Avengers and Doctor Strange than my homework. Dungeons & Dragons sent me on death defying adventures with my friends, and sometimes against them. Playing World of Warcraft for the first time was a mind-blowing experience.
