I am a graphic designer for a mid-grade newspaper. I was literally raised by a rock band. Having been raised on music, I am one of the few people who actually mean it when they say they like all kinds of music. I am married with a young child, so I'm obviously into things which involve children. Anybody with a child should be. I've been a Stephen King fan since I was 11 years old. This probably began my obsession with anything dark or frightening. Vampires would be on that list, so add the fact that they are also sexy, I dress up as one almost every Halloween. Aside from horror, I do enjoy reading more worthwhile novels. My father had a required reading list for me when I was 18, which included Aldus Huxley, and George Orwell as well as Plato, (with many others in between). These were in order to make me a better person, which I think they have.
