Author -- John M. Whalen

"I'm a professional journalist based in Washington, D.C. I work for a business publishing company that I prefer to leave nameless. I've freelanced articles on films and TV for the Washington Post, and a series of Travel Articles for Washington Times. Also did some stuff for Filmfax magazine. Also am an astrologer, and my articles on astrology can be found on

"As for influences, I grew up on Edgar Rice Burroughs. Was obsessed at a very young age with Flash Gordon serials on TV. Now own them all on DVD. One of my favorite writers was Stirling Silliphant, the TV and film writer who did Route 66 and Naked City and got the Oscar for In the Heat of the Night. Big fan of David Morrell creator of Rambo."
