A Personal Message from Ethan Cross...
I think the best thing about being a writer is the act of creation. I’m happiest when I’m enjoying someone else’s creation or bringing one of my own into existence. Forging something new from nothing using only your imagination is a very therapeutic and fulfilling experience.

I’ve been an ENORMOUS fan of movies since I was very young. How many ten-year-olds do you know that had a calendar hanging on their wall marking the release dates of every major Hollywood production? I would force my parents to take me to sometimes two or three movies in a single weekend. We would often hit the 4:30 matinee at the theater, walk out, and drive straight over to get a good spot at the drive-in or turn around and walk back into a 7:00 o’clock showing at the same theater. In high school, I would rent a couple of movies every night from our local video store, although I did still find time to date, sing and play guitar in a rock band, play sports, and serve as our senior class president and valedictorian. Not much has changed since then; my wife and I still take in a movie every weekend. Shortly after college, I also discovered a great love for reading, sometimes consuming three to four books a week. For me, movies and books have always been and always will be magical experiences.

For most of us, life is pretty ordinary. But the great thing is that we can experience any extraordinary world imaginable through fiction. For me, thrillers are the best form of escape. Even if the characters in a thriller are ordinary, the circumstances are always extraordinary. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be a thriller. Isn’t it cool that we live in a world where we can pull back the curtain and experience a glimpse of what it would be like as an FBI profiler, a fireman, a lone assassin, a special forces commando, or the President of the United States. We only get to experience life through our own very limited perception, but through the magic of stories, we can become other people. We can stand on the outside and look in on a world of endless possibilities, and we can do so from the comfort of our own homes.

And that’s why it means so much to me to share the “magic” of good stories with other people.

That’s where YOU come in.

Without my wonderful group of readers and fans, I’m nothing more than a guy clicking keys and writing about my imaginary friends. But when we share a story, something magical happens. A new world is born. A world that we can both share and enjoy filled with people we can love, hate, laugh with, cry with, and care about.

That’s what I want this community and team to be about…sharing the magic. And I can’t do that without YOU.
