THE TAKING OF CYNDRIEL'S HOPE
The Knights of liberty show with Actor Cory Williams
I am a writer/actor currently living and working in Los Angeles, California and seeking to spread the good word about my work.
Having moved from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Los Angeles, California- the entertainment Mecca of the country- to be an actor, one could say that from one job to the next, I am still continuously pursuing the dream, one that is about the journey, not necessarily the destination. In the process of pursuing the dream, I have also become a published novelist.
As a writer, my primary genre of choice is science fiction. I’ve always believed that one of the most powerful questions posed in any language is “What if…?” As such, science fiction- being the mythology of the modern age- is the perfect playground in which to allow my active and fertile imagination to run free. That being the case, and my being a relatively new writer on the scene, I thought that this would be of some interest to you and your listening audience.
