By Sven Davison
A good ghost story will have you spotting phantoms from the corner of your eye, or cause your skin to creep at the slightest sound. A good writer utilizes sentence structure to build tension. Authors also use setting, character, and plot. But how much of each will give you the perfect witch’s brew? Sven and NEVS focus on plot versus character in this episode of Back & Forth.
Sven Michael Davison is the author of Blockbuster, a satirical look at action films and the people who make them. He has also penned The God Head Trilogy, a post-cyberpunk tale that examines the darker side of singularity theory, mass effect, and artificial intelligence.
Sven spent many years in Hollywood trying to break into screenwriting while writing trailer copy for movies like Beavis and Butthead Do America and The Relic. He then launched the DVD Production and Content Group for Twentieth Century Fox and spent ten years managing the department where he was responsible for all special features on DVD, Blu-ray, and UMD media.
In addition to hosting the YouTube channel Author/Author, Sven is close to releasing a memoir about traveling to all seven continents in seven years as well as putting the finishing touches on a contemporary fantasy trilogy.
