Hello everyone I'm Chris, a writer from Manchester, and I've been plugging away at one type of writing or another since I was in my teens. I've contributed reviews and stories to a few places, have my ambitions (of course) and one day would - dream come true territory this - like to have a story of mine turned into a movie. I'm sure I'm alone in that! I'm also a major film buff and I love music. In fact, as I'm new here, maybe a good taster of me & who I am would be the kind of music I like listening to as I write, so ... Last few days it's been a Johnny Cash compilation, Springsteen's Born in the USA album (one of my faves, even though I was born in Bury, England ... wooo that's iconic!) and The Sopranos OST. Mind, I am at my sister's in the Channel Islands, so I couldn't take many CDs. Often it'll be some blues (BB King would have to be my favourite), maybe some Stones or perhaps some cheesy pop rock to get things going. Not for very long, though! I'm not sure what's good / bad form in re mentioning stuff, but if anyone wants to see my blog it's at www.chriswoodbooks.blogspot.com. Please give me a shout through here or there if you'd care to. Cheers all!
