Personal Quote:

A writer is very much like the captain on a star ship facing the unknown. When you face the blank page and you have no idea where you're going. It can be terrifying, but it can also be the adventure of a lifetime. See more »

Trivia:

He used to work at WBBM-TV in Chicago, Illinois, the very same TV station that produced the "Siskel & Ebert" TV show. Siskel knew him personally. And praised his self-penned "Star Trek: Insurrection" film. Roger's review was negative. See more »
