Steve Pool
English and reading tutor

I joined Create50 in 2015. I have reviewed 53 projects.

Hello! I'm Steve, a writer, photographer and high school English tutor. Many of the stories I write involve out-of-control technology, lycanthropes, or flippant death gods. I live in North Carolina with my wife, Robin.

Films that Inspired Me

I love movies with heroic characters, beautiful artwork, bigger-than-life sets, and complex stories filled with action sequences - movies like the J.J. Abrams Star Wars and Star Trek films, and Marvel greats like the first Iron Man. I'm also a huge anime fan: I think a lot of the best storytelling is coming out of Japan, and films like Spirited Away, Ghost In the Shell, and 5 Cm Per Second are beautifully illustrated examples of this.

My Favorite Quote

"There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls." - George Carlin
