About this author

Gattaca is in my top 5 favorite movies. It's an intellectual film that forces you to think and reconsider your opinions.

But sometimes I don't want to watch Gattaca. Sometimes I want to watch Independence Day. Or Jurassic Park. Or, GI Joe 2: Retaliation. There, I said it. I loved GI Joe 2. Sometimes you just want to sit back, turn on the TV, and watch explosions for 2 hours. And that's okay. Other times you want to watch Gattaca.

I write the Friday-night-action-movie-books that I want to read. I call them: Action-packed action books of action.

Thanks for checking them out.



Tom Wright lives in Austin, TX with his wife, Molly, and their daughter, Tara Dactyl. Molly's dog is Bear, and Tom's is Zoe. Zoe is a million times better than Bear.
