A recent Review of my book, “The Wind Raider,” compared my work to the Mad Max/Road Warrior Movie Series. I wish “WR” was as good as “Max Max: Fury Road” – a film I absolutely love!!!

SEE IT: Japanese boy, 5, can fight just like Bruce Lee
#martialarts   #kungfu   #adorable   #wow   #amazing  
A Japanese child with an extraordinary knack for nunchaku can keep up with Bruce Lee’s classic martial arts films — move for move.

The boy’s father began uploading videos late last year to show off the 5-year-old’s adorable attempt at the martial arts style known as jeet kune do. It’s made Ryusei an overseas viral star.

His stage is typically a living room carpet in front of the family’s entertainment system that’s been turned into a shrine dedicated to Bruce Lee.
s Bruce Lee moves on a Korean television show in April.

The little fighter’s latest video from Friday shows the him perfecting Lee’s moves from “Enter the Dragon,” the actor’s last movie before his death in 1973.

Ryusei has since taken his martial arts show on the road. He appeared on a Korean television show last month to demonstrate what he’s capable of.

Though a little shy at first because he doesn't speak Korean, but Ryusei had no problem attacking invisible foes — and real ones — on stage in a child-sized version of Lee’s iconic yellow-black track suit.

He says his father is teaching him kung fu with a little help from Bruce Lee's films.

Richard Corliss was a film reviewer, but he will always be, in my mind, a film critic. He was the first writer about film who challenged me to think deeper, and see differently, what I had already seen.

What's currently being said for "Goodbye" that non-industry vets think means "Hello" --

“Who are you… and how did you get on the lot?”

“Thank you for your submission. Your script was covered by one of our best Interns...”

“I had my agent call your agent. It turns out you don’t have an agent… or a manager. But we have a bigger problem -- you also don’t have a lawyer. So right now, my lawyer is just sitting in his office… not sure who he should call…”

“I’m sure you’re really important, but I still need to see your badge”

“Go ahead and use that phone to try and contact your agent. Let’s find out together if he answers your call.”

“My assistant read to me the evaluation on your script this morning. Brace yourself because what I heard from her was not good news...”

“I heard someone here really liked your script, but unfortunately we're no longer accepting any script submissions outside the 310 area code.”

“I saw your movie at the premiere party. But that was a long time ago. At least nine months, right? Have you ever tasted champagne from a bottle opened nine months ago? There’s no bubbles rising to the top. Just the taste of sour grapes.”

Introduction

I've been a professional writer since 1994. 

Drawing on my experience as a screenwriter and producer I am the author of the PS series of e-books for those who want to know more about professional screenwriting. All of the books I've written thus far have wound up on the amazon.com best-selling list! The first e-book in the series was -- 20 Rules for Professional Screenwriters followed by 19 Techniques for Professional Screenwriters and 16 Secrets from Professional Screenwriters..2015 will see the publication of 25 Steps to Writing a Professional Screenplay. 

As a novelist I wrote the first of four DEMON DAYS books in 2009. The book series has become an amazon.com bestseller! I also created the RELICT vampire series, the SF/ thriller book series BLACKMARIAH, and the Illustrated SF/post apocalyptic book series The WIND RAIDER 

I continue to work as a professional screenwriter and producer of movies and TV shows.

I live in Southern California because this is where my dogs have decided they want to live.
