I started to seriously write somewhat late, around 21 years old. Not to say I didn't try as a child, but my mind was more extroverted back then. What honestly triggered me to turn inward and write was... growing up through the 80's I watched the greatest cartoons ever made; He-Man, Thundercats, Transformers, and Silverhawks. These amazing mythological like figures, fighting for justice and honor, urged me to draw my own original characters. As I matured into the teens, these characters then needed personalities and history to bring them on a serious level. Playing Dungeons and Dragons gave me and my two talented brothers, Robb and Todd, an outlet for this need to create and express our characters' souls. I eventually built the backgrounds of our characters within Clash at Creeden from these saved roleplaying games I crafted and ran as DM. Around 20 yrs old my attention shifted to questioning and researching EVERYTHING! On my plate was ancient world history, religion, spirituality, and the Zodiac-to construct an overall plot for Clash at Creeden.
To remain as honest as possible, like the dark Scorpio I am... no one author or authors have made me want to write for a career. I never felt the need to do something because of someone else. The need to have a career in publishing comes from my own insidious need to communicate a deep & dark question and possible shocking answer. Science Fiction, ha ha, gives me this platform for a career full of absolute honesty without getting in hot water. However, my creativity has been inspired by the likes of Dante, Homer, Zecharia Sitchin, and Graham Hancock. It is cool to take a little inspiration from your mentors, but do what you do because it makes you a better person.
We at The Sunz of the Zodiac TM are products of the 80's and 90's. Nothing about us fits the dry mouthed standard in this age old business of written communication. Our "New Age" style blends very little of the norm with much of the renegade ideals and habits often dismissed by the older generations. We seek not your approval, but urge you to look within your own soul to challenge the limits placed upon us by our governments and religions. Let our creativity and originality speak for itself. I thank you for your time and enjoy Clash at Creeden. Peace, light, and love...
