I like that conventions want me to appear and festivals want me to come speak because they like the climate I attract. It's a good feeling.
As a writer, Chris Columbus was a big influence. 'The Goonies' was the first movie I ever saw that kids speak normally and not imagined how kids would talk. Always a big fan of Chris Columbus' dialogue and storytelling.
If there is one constant to my life, it is that you cannot tell me 'no.'
I write back to every fan who writes me, which is kind of a full-time job in some regards 'cause I don't want people to wait too long . So I get up very early in the morning and try to rip through all of them. I pretty much sleep four hours a night. Then I'm constantly writing and doing short Halloween films for my web site. I'm definitely busy.
