What I did at Horrorfind 2005!
8/24/2005 5:29:20 PM

First, my thanks to my husband for staying with my mother and letting me be not only a part of Horrorfind, but giving me the time to relax and enjoy it as well. He is my love and my rock. And now for Horrorfind Weekend.

I had an awfully good time at Horrorfind Weekend Convention, but it was crowded and hot. I regret having missed Pam Kinney’s reading on Sunday. I got over-heated and couldn't handle the wait. I thought Elizabeth Massie’s reading was fantastic, and John Skip:) (wild name and also known as Wild Man) was great too. I liked his point of view on editing. I went to a few other readings as well, and of course listening to Elizabeth Blue read her short stories was truly exciting...goats and candles people. Now that I think about it, the two Beth's readings had something in common...SEX, and they're darn good at it.

I bought a couple of things, have a list of more stuff to buy, and the dinner with Mid-Atlantic Horror Professionals was fantastic. Matt Warner's late night party was enjoyable. Finally, I made it to a party and it was also the first time I heard so many evening parties and their room numbers being volleyed about in the halls of the hotel. I especially liked my day off. It was lots of fun. Much more happened too, people I met, etc. but I just can't write it all.

Forgot to mention Deena Warner at Party. She's an eccentric. She’s an artist. You know, she kept drawing on the balloons. My thanks to Sarah, the organizer for the dinner and for the "wine." I also went to Mr. Monteleone's reading and enjoyed the Horn story. Michael Lamio read with him and I enjoyed his reading as well. I missed several other readings I wanted to be at. Perhaps at another time I’ll get that chance. Writers I find to be a strange lot. Sometimes I think they're friendly, and other times the way they look at you is down right scary. "shiver" *smile*

I decided that when I’m at Horrorfind that I intend to collect autographed photo’s of actors. This time I got Andrew Divoff, a very talented, handsome actor whose performances have made many a boring evening exciting. I know that his photo of when he performed in Faust will inspire me to write some really neat stories. He’s also quite a nice man who carried on a conversation with me and answered questions that I know he must have been asked thousands of times before. I remember, for some strange reason, we shoot hands and I thought, “damn, he really is made of flesh and blood”. You know, he has a strong, warm hand shake and his voice is really as powerful in real life as it is on the screen. Hey, actors are like ancient gods.

My Saturday evening ended with my walking back to my hotel. On the way there I noticed a large television set outside with many people (most all dressed in black) seated in fold up chairs and on the ground, a man speaking, then answering questions. I kept looking and just couldn’t figure out what this was about. He continued answering questions about Hollywood, about A-list actors, and B movies and how today A listers are actually doing B movies, and I laughed and laughed. I thought, my, what a voice/accent this gentleman has, what presence! Then, I figured it out…it was Bruce Campbell.

I also recalled another time I had been at Horrorfind and I saw a man, actor of course, Michael Berryman. My, he was spectacular, and inspired me to write a wolf script. I’d started it, but could not continue. My mother became ill, and my life was no longer my own. But I never forgot and I never will. He is an extraordinary man. Not that I know him personally, but he is simpatico.

The End
