Author Jim DeVault is a filmmaker, writer, and self-proclaimed historian of cheesy horror and sci-fi movies. He has been making films for more than 30 years, and has completed several features, all made on low budgets, so he knows what he's talking about in this book! He is also a composer, working in electronic music, with several CDs in release. He lives in the Dallas, Texas area, likes good bourbon, bad movies, dogs, and tolerates small children.
