Today's guest is Cory Williams a writer/actor currently living and working in Los Angeles, California and seeking to spread the good word about my work. As a Boomer 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, He is still continuously pursuing the dream, one that is about the journey, not necessarily the destination. In the process of pursuing the dream, he's become a published novelist. As a writer,his primary genre of choice is science fiction. He 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 his active and fertile imagination to run free. He currently has four novels published and on the market, available in print-to-order trade paperback and downloadable e-book format.
