I’m the generation who grew up on Star Trek TNG, and then X Files and then Buffy, Veronica Mars, Firefly, and Supernatural. The Blair Witch Project kept me awake for weeks – when you grow up in the woods, movies that use all your greatest fears against you, mess with your head. My older sister introduced me to John Hughes movies, and the stack of sci fi, classics, and Stephen King novels kept in my house, meant that I always had something great to read. My motivation and excitement for stories comes from many places.
