William David Thomas

I really liked Depp's work in Edward Scissorhands (shown above), and was fascinated to learn that he'd studied Charlie Chaplin's films to prepare for the role.

Johnny Depp

I was really excited when I got the chance to write about Depp. I'd enjoyed his films and the variety of roles he took on. I was hoping I could do a personal interview - particularly since Depp lives in the south of France much of the time - but alas, it was not to be. 

Featured book

When I began planning my web site, I thought it would be fun to include a "book of the month" page. I'd pick one of my books and tell a little about it: things I learned while writing it, problems I encountered, and, perhaps, stuff I wanted to include in the book that the editors cut out. So keep checking in. Every so often (maybe monthly) I'll change the book.
