Horror/Sci-Fi/Suspense Influences on TSJ Before the Age of Ten
I recently published a blog piece celebrating my fiftieth year on the planet. In the article, I wrote about the books I read as a child under the age of ten.

The Furnace, The Freezer, The Void by TSJ
I wanted to showcase this incredible concept artwork by Nelson Housden for each book in The Tanner Sequence. Agatha Christie and Isaac Asimov inspired me to write these futuristic murder mysteries, published by Carina Press back in 2013, 2014, and 2015. The Furnace was the first book I sold, back in 2012.

Newspaper Article on TSJ
There was a wonderful article on my writing and books yesterday in The London Free Press. The topics focused on my writing philosophy, mission, inspirations, and important themes in my new series The Rise of Oceania: resource exploitation, climate change, and the legacy our fathers leave for us, for good or for bad. I hope you enjoy the article (link below). Thanks to entertainment reporter Joe Belanger.

Movie: THE FLY (1958)

Studio: 20th Century Fox
Sequels: RETURN OF THE FLY, CURSE OF THE FLY, THE FLY, THE FLY II

During this Coronavirus outbreak, I took the opportunity to watch the original film THE FLY with my 12 year old daughter. We’re shuttered inside, and while I spend a great deal of my time writing, we’re also watching a lot of movies, streaming shows, and playing games. THE FLY is a wonderful “horror” film from the 1950’s, part of my new BluRay package of FLY films, and has an important message for all content creators and creative writers.
