Robert Zemeckis, Academy Award winning writer-director-producer of BACK TO THE FUTURE, FORREST GUMP, CAST AWAY, POLAR EXPRESS

“I found the world of FALCON LORD to be majestic, visually stunning, and endearing. I have no doubt this franchise has the capacity to grow and grow.” Bruce Joel Rubin, Academy Award winning writer of GHOST, JACOB’S LADDER, DEEP IMPACT, STUART LITTLE 2, THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE

“I was stuck by the magical nature of FALCON LORD, and sincerely hope to see it join the ranks of fantasy classics.” Mark Johnson, Academy Award Winning producer of RAIN MAN, CHRONICLES OF NARNIA, A LITTLE PRINCESS, GALAXY QUEST, THE NOTEBOOK

An Epic Steampunk Fantasy Novel--In this third installment of Falcon Lord, a series of Steampunk Fantasy Novels, the good people of Valkyrie have finally driven off Dredgemont’s gorpes and nzumbe trolls, but the enemies’ evil spirits still haunt Perpetua. The great raven, Wark has died, and the citizens elect Brighton Aviamore the new Chancellor. The Falcon Rider’s first challenge is to stop the mysterious winds that are growing worse by the day. But when Willowmena is kidnapped by a monstrous bird, and Brighton discovers she’s been taken to a land called Amaraka, he abandons all other concerns, and swears an oath to get her back. Forced to traverse the dimensions of time and space, and reincarnate in a new body, Brighton is reborn in Kansas shortly after the end of the American Civil War which has been won by the South. An elitist mob of Rutheneist tycoons (part zombie, part vampire) are destroying the earth out of greed, and the same winds ripping apart Perpetua are driving humanity underground. Brighton grows up to be a brilliant inventor and aviator. He attends the finest steam technology university in the country where students race single-man steam jets in a city filled with a bewildering array of Babbage-steam driven vehicles, airships, and other inventions. Joined by Will, Pello, and Biffee (also incarnated as humans), Brighton discovers the winds are originating from an oceanic whirlpool that’s being fueled by manmade disruptions to the environment. Though determined to find a solution, he faces a series of devastating traumas including Will’s murder. Assisted by a small army of robots, he constructs an enormous levitating platform in the shape of a falcon to carry a reverse-ionization device over the sea and restore balance to the discordant atmosphere. His nemesis, Dredgemont has also incarnated in America, and sets out to destroy him by raising an army of phantom gorpes, trolls, and bats, including Gretch and Malgor. A clash of spirit armies takes place amidst the global hurricane and the Skookumchuck whirlpool threatens to swallow Brighton and his fantastic airship to the bottom of the sea.

During this time, I spent a year painting in Rome, Italy.Inspired by the early works of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, I wrote a 32 page treatment with drawings for my motion picture, SOLARBABIES. The treatment evolved into a 12-minute, computerized slide presentation. With the help of Mark Johnson [RAIN MAN], we sold the project to Mel Brooks [THE PRODUCERS]. The movie is still in distribution by MGM.Some of my writing mentors have been Menno Meyjes [THE COLOR PURPLE], Walon Green [THE WILD BUNCH], Bruce Joel Rubin [GHOST], and Bruce McAllister [DREAM BABY]. My first agent was Jack Rapke, Head of the Motion Picture Department of CAA, now producer for Robert Zemeckis [FORREST GUMP, CAST AWAY].I'm now represented by Caren Bohrman of the Caren Bohrman Agency.I've written, produced, and directed two, small feature films, DARK SPIRAL and LITTLE EDEN, as well as several short films. I have multiple novel, graphic novel, and motion picture projects in development--most currently, the FALCON LORD series, THE TERRIBLE QUEST OF THADDEUS PENNYBROOK'S KNEE-HIGH STEAMBOTS, and MACHINE OF GOD.I currently live in Santa Barbara, California with my wife Maureen.
