What are you reading? Who is your favourite?

Graphic novels count right? Lee Child is also pretty good. He writes the Jack Reacher crime novels. You know, in the books, Jack Reacher is a 6ft tall blonde man, not a 3ft tall Tom Cruise!

Tell us something interesting about you.

I lived in England for 6 months until I got kicked out for being too Aussie.

I wrote a short movie called “Home Alone 4 Ever” where the little kid gets shot in the first few minutes after squirting intruders with a water pistol. The rest of the short is a 'first person' view of the kid watching the intruders rob the house as it slowly fades to black.
