You might think “escape” was why I’ve made a career of writing fiction and sometimes time-travel, but the answer is more complicated. Stay tuned for a memoir. Until then, a brief bio:
I was raised in a family of screenwriters. My father, William Tunberg, wrote “Old Yeller,” my uncle, Karl Tunberg, wrote “Ben Hur.” My first job was thinning pears in the Bear Creek orchards in southern Oregon. Since then, I’ve worked as a machinist, commercial fisherman, semipro baseball player, bartender, actor, literary agent, film technician and lighting director. I received a BA in philosophy from Brown University, was commissioned in the U.S. Marine Corps, served as a captain during the Vietnam War, later earned an MA from San Francisco State and an MFA from the Writers' Workshop at the University of Iowa, thanks to a graduate fellowship and the G.I. Bill. I’ve traveled extensively in the Third World and—Venceremos—lived in Cuba for a short time which inspired Papa and Fidel. I was a university professor for three years, then—back in L.A.—an intern at the American Film Institute. I’ve written and optioned ten screenplays and have published five novels. Two have been made into films, including my bestselling book, Time After Time. I co-produced the feature film, “Rattlers,” have also written two TV pilots which have aired on NBC.
My a sequel to Time After Time called Jaclyn the Ripper was published by Forge Books in November, 2009, and was launched at The Tattered Cover in Denver. A new, rewritten edition of Time After Time came out in February, 2010. Time After Time, the musical, had its world premiere at the Pittsburgh Playhouse in March. And in April, 2010, Forge Books published a trade edition of Papa and Fidel, my novel of the Cuban revolution.
Currently, I’m writing a new science fiction novel and planning a more permanent escape. My mantra, in the words of Tom Stoppard: “Every exit is an entrance somewhere else….”
