One of the unexpected pleasures of being an author is occasionally finding out that what you write actually inspires people. Just last week I received a copy of British film star Christopher Lee’s new DVD, The Making of a Legend (the first volume of a planned series of DVDS) recounting the veteran film actor’s experiences in the movie business.

As I scrolled through the end credits I saw my name under the Special Thanks banner. I emailed Mr. Lee’s webmaster and producer, Juan Aneiros, who is also his son-in-law, to thank him for the listing. He wrote back that he and Mr. Lee decided to produce the new series on their own after reading my QuickTime book, a copy of which I had sent him with my compliments last December.

Makes my day.
