Best-selling author, journalist, and former filmmaker, Stephen J. Semones began writing at an early age to satisfy his compulsion to tell stories. Since then, he has gone on to develop some of the most ambitious projects in the worlds of independent film, literature, and online radio.

Retired from film, Stephen decided to put all of his focus on writing. His candid how-to-book on filmmaking, Beyond the Lens: A Beginner's Guide to Filmmaking, hit the best-seller list five times and further established him as a formidable force in both the film and literary worlds.

Great question! There's a few fictional book worlds I'd love to go to.

Harry Potter: I'd love to be a wizard in this world. Going to Diagon Alley, picking out a wand, going to Hogwarts, using magic- it seems so much fun to me. The world that JK Rowling created was so deep that it just makes you want to go there.

Star Wars: I'd love to be a Jedi. Timothy Zahn brought such life to the Star Wars Universe in the 90's when everyone presumed it to be dead and gone. It was in this resurgence that I found the worlds and lore outside of the movies. So, I think it would be cool to be one of the new force users trained by Luke Skywalker.

Middle Earth: I'd love to visit Middle Earth. I don't think I'd like to visit during the great battles of the third age, but I'd dig walking through the Shire or visiting Minas Tirith or Rohan. (less)
