For as long as I can remember, movies have been part of my life. I don’t know if my parents plopped me in front of the TV one too many times, or if it’s just in my DNA, but I have an movie addiction that’s still going strong today.
My levels of addiction went something like this:
Was it the forbidden romances in Cinderella and The Little Mermaid that lured me in? Or the cute little animals like Bambi and Lady and the Tramp who I wished I could play with in real life? haha. Whatever the reason, I’m a faithful Disney Queen and will watch these classics again and again, happily.
As a young girl, I sighed over teen heartthrobs and cool movies like The Outsiders, Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful, Karate Kid, and The Breakfast Club. I guess I’ve always had a thing for teen drama, huh?
Action, Romance, and a Touch of Humor:
There is just something about those rebellious heroes, who are the underdog in the beginning and prevail in the end. I’m content when there is lots of action, sudden romance, mixed in with memorable lines that make you smile. I’ll always be a faithful fan of Rocky, Indiana Jones, Lethal Weapon, and Die Hard--movies that keep you on the edge of your seat and rooting for the guys who are imperfect, but with good hearts.
Yeah, that’s the road I traveled to get where I am today. So if there’s a cure, I don’t want one. I love to be entertained and now I try to entertain readers with my own stories.
