For 10 years I had a day job as a reporter for the Destin Log in Northwest Florida, covering city government, arts and entertainment, and whatever else comes up. Since moving to Durham, NC to be with my fiancee, I’ve been freelancing on ehow and working on other projects.
On my own time I write—primarily fiction. but I’m also the author of three film reference books, The Wizard of Oz Catalog, Cyborgs, Santa Claus and Satan and Screen Enemies of the American Way.
I regularly blog on myspace.com/fraser_sherman, but since commenting isn’t possible except for myspacers, I thought I’d add a second venue and see if I got more responses (not a lot, but my readership has certainly grown)
In case you’re curious, here’s a list of my fiction available, either online or to order.
