Stephen T. Brophy is a living human male. He resides in the principality of Los Angeles, California USA. He works in television production and makes his living answering the rhetorical question, "Reality TV has writers?" He loves his wife Danielle, his daughter Cordelia, his dogs Griff and Tex, science fiction, funnybooks, movies and sleep in more or less that order. Sleep might be higher on the list these days, but he doesn't want to piss anyone off by bumping them.

Put words down anyway, even if they're sucky, even if you despise every line. Just get something down on paper and the sense of accomplishment alone will steer you back to the path you want to be on. And if that's not happening, walk away for awhile. Run an errand, visit a friend, make a phone call, pay some bills, take a walk or a jog or go to the gym or whatever helps you unwind. The best ideas don't always come when you're sitting at the keyboard. It's how you wrestle with them when you are there that makes you a writer.(less)

Immersing myself in fictional realities is a tremendous escape from the pressures and mundanities of day-to-day existence. In these worlds, I have control (well, to a point--many times I find my characters seeming to dictate what it is they want to do and I'm just a remote delivery system--like an Amazon drone pilot--for their words and actions, which is even more incredible). I don't know of any activity, short of art, which I'm just not good at or I'd be making comics, that allows you to really become immersed in a fictitious reality that can be as wildly unpredictable as our own, but on a much grander scale. Even reading someone else's fiction is not as immersive for me as writing my own. I really live inside it when the writing is flowing. When it's not, it can be a lot like being stuck in traffic. But hey, even if you're stuck in traffic, it's because you're trying to get somewhere you want or need to be.(less)

Good but too short

This is such a short "prequel" story to the terrific Vicious that it left me feeling a bit cheated. It's really just something meant for fans of Schwab's novel, more a deleted scene than a genuine self-contained character study. The

Excellent read

A dark, twisty thriller with a surprising amount of heart for a story with no real good guys or heroes to speak of. Glad I waited this long to get around to it because the sequel comes out in a month
