About Kevin Lovell

I am a contributor here and also run my own site http://screen-connections.com/ The extent of my love for horror films and television is probably bordering on obsessive. I read a lot of books and watch so many TV shows that i can barely find time to keep up to date on them all. I have always loved writing and even wrote short stories and screenplays for fun as a kid. I live in beautiful California, laughing at all of you stuck in the snow! If you need to contact me, please feel free to send an email to kevin@screen-connections.com
