Overview

A one-of-a-kind, backstage look at the greatest cult movie phenomenon of all time—The Rocky Horror Picture Show—told by those who lived it.



Set in South Florida in 1982, it chronicles the true story of a teenager who joins the late-night Rocky Horror cast at the local theater and, as a result, has his life turned upside down. The cast turns out to be the oddest collection of freaks, dropouts, druggies, outsiders, losers, ladykillers, sex kittens and vamps ever assembled and, ultimately, the greatest collection of friends and loyal companions to walk the earth.



Confessions of a Transylvanian” is a moving snapshot of life in a Rocky Horror cast that captures the grit, language and teenage angst of a group of fishnet-clad performers as they explore a world where the only rule was: Don’t dream it. Be it.

Apart from his writing, Kevin has been an actor on stage and screen in Chicago for over 25 years. He has appeared on stage in the roles of Salieri in "Amadeus," the title role in "Richard III," George in "Of Mice and Men," Edward in "Someone Who'll Watch Over Me" (Jeff Award nomination, Best Actor) and Mr. Lockhart in "The Seafarer" (Jeff Award winner, Best Ensemble).

I'm an actor, author, and stuntman. And, like most writers, I've been writing for much of my life. (For a snapshot, visit www.ronfoxmedia.com ).

Ideas constantly pop into my head and I'll think, "That's a cool idea for a story," and then ignore it. When it doesn't leave me alone, I decide to write the idea down, and then a few more words to see where it takes me. I have a few unfinished manuscripts, which bothered me until I learned it affected Mark Twain.

If we don't always finish conversations, it's only normal a story might remain unfinished. A book is, after all, one long conversation of internal and external dialogue.
I write short stories and the other, longer variety.

I try to keep my website - www.ronfoxmedia - more or less up to date. My other site - www.ronaldfox.com - is a good source for older reels.
And also write for a couple of other outlets.
I'll do my best to stay reasonably current with my blog and bio.
