Over the years, I had always wanted to write a novel. After many years of unfinished works and procrastination due to a dramatic past, I had finally found an opportunity to complete my first novel, Twisted Christians. Writing is highly addictive and I am now working on other projects.
I suppose that it's only fair to mention that Twisted Christians needs a warning label. So here it is:
**WARNING** Twisted Christians may cause you to believe in the existence of God.
My influences range from a variety of artists, writers, and musicians. Music, movies, and novels have become a major part of my life over the years. I like Megadeth, Overkill, SuidAkra, Metallica, Lacuna Coil, 3 Doors Down, 25 Ta Life, Straight Line Stitch, Dream Theater, Anthrax, and several other bands. My favorite movies are Star Wars (all of them), Hostel, From Beyond, Office Space, They Live, and True Romance. I like pretty much anything that Quentin Tarantino, Eli Roth, Clive Barker, and Rob Zombie put out. Some of my favorite authors are God, D. Thomas Lancaster, Stephen King, Derek Prince, Elizabeth Parker, Joanne Lyons, H.P. Lovecraft, Hope Egan, Steve Alten, Sheila Myers, and Patience Prence.
I joined a band called Nocturnal Ascent in July of 2011. You can check out our YouTube channel at: The Official Nocturnal Ascent
I'm currently in a band called FATE. FATE was started in June of 2012, two months after Nocturnal Ascent fell apart. Our current members are:
Pam Schmidt: Vocals
Scott Meade: Guitar
Erik Mielzarek: Bass
Travis Custer: Drums
