What was the inspiration for creating your first zine?

Ever since I was a kid, I've been fascinated with the dark side of Hollywood. Making fanzines give me the opportunity to turn that obsession into something creative and artistic. My first issue was on "Rebel Without a Cause" actor, Sal Mineo - considered by many to be the first gay teenager in a Hollywood movie. It's important that his story be told along with the contributions in life that he left behind in death.

What is your favorite part of making zines?

My favorite part of making zines is researching. I could easily spend all day every day researching the subjects of my fanzines. I will watch all of the star's movies, read as many books and articles that I can find on them, and visit the places that they lived and died.
