1) Do you write fiction or nonfiction ?  I AM NOT A WRITER.  I PUBLISH THE FICTION WORKS OF L. RON HUBBARD.

2) Ever been tempted to join in on audiobooks or Golden Age Theater ?  GALAXY PRESS PUBLISHES AN INCREDIBLE LINE OF UNABRIDGED, MULTICAST AUDIOBOOKS CALLED “STORIES FROM THE GOLDEN AGE” WHERE WE USE ABOUT 80 HOLLYWOOD ACTORS.

3) BEST of ‘JOHN’ at work/at home ?  I ENJOY COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT AND AM ON THE HOLLYWOOD CHAMBER BOARD OF DIRECTORS, HOLLYWOOD CENTRAL PARK BOARD OF DIRECTORS, PRESIDENT OF THE HOLLYWOOD CHRISTMAS PARADE AND MY WORK AS PRESIDENT OF GALAXY PRESS.

4) WORST of ‘JOHN’ at work/at home ?  SOMETIMES MY VOLUNTEER EYES ARE BIGGER THAN MY VOLUNTEER STOMACH AND FIND IT A REAL CHALLENGE TO KEEP UP WITH THE BEST OF ‘JOHN.’

5) One Sentence Descriptions –

Jim Meskimen: A MAN OF A THOUSAND VOICES AND DIRECTOR OF OUR GOLDEN AGE AUDIOBOOKS
Phil Proctor: CO-CREATOR OF THE FIRESIGN THEATRE, AMAZING VOICE TALENT. AND HE SPEAKS 5 LANGUAGES!
Bruce Boxleitner: FROM TRON TO GOLDEN AGE THEATER, HE HAS AN AMAZING GRAVELLY VOICE
Martin Kove: FROM KARATE KID TO STORIES FROM THE GOLDEN AGE, HE IS ALSO INCREDIBLY KNOWLEDGEABLE ON ALL THINGS WESTERN MOVIE.
L.Ron Hubbard: ONE OF THE ARCHITECTS OF AMERICA’S GOLDEN AGE OF SCIENCE FICTION, AS WELL AS ACCOMPLISHED AUTHOR OF ALL POPULAR GENRES, USING HIS OWN AND 15 PEN NAMES.

6) What can you tell us about ‘Hollywood Christmas Parade’ ?  IT IS ONE AMERICA’S OLDEST AND IS THE BIGGEST CHRISTMAS PARADE AND AUTHOR SERVICES ( MY OFFICE BUILDING, LOCATED ON HOLLYWOOD BLVD A BLOCK WEST OF THE CHINESE THEATRE ) IS THE GREEN ROOM.

7) Have you watched ‘Battlefield Earth’ ?  YES.  BUT MORE TO THE POINT FOR ME AS AN AUDIOBOOK PUBLISHER, IS THAT I HAVE LISTENED TO THE AUDIOBOOK VERSION AND REALLY ENJOY IT. THE EXISTING EDITION WAS NARRATED BY THE LATE GREAT VOICE ACTOR, RODDY MCDOWALL.

8) Have you watched ‘ The Secret Of Treasure Island’,’Dive Bomber’,’Tales Of Wells Fargo’ or ‘The Married Couple’ ?  YES.

9) How many countries have you visited,A Favorite ?  6 – CANADA, MEXICO, CHINA, DUBAI, GERMANY AND OF COURSE THE USA.  I HAVE FOUND FAVORITE THINGS UNIQUE TO EACH OF THEM. SO I GUESS THEY ARE ALL MY FAVORITE.

10) Give us those words that will last,Till next we read or listen ?  THE REASON I ENJOY ESCAPIST FICTION, LIKE WHAT I PUBLISH, IS THAT I AM ABLE TO RAPIDLY TRAVEL TO SOME OTHER REMOTE AREA OR CIRCUMSTANCE AND HAVE A GOOD TIME.  ITS NOT A DISTRACTION TO LIFE I SEEK, RATHER A CHANGE OF PACE THAT IS VERY ENJOYABLE.
