In his novella, Digby’s Hollywood Story, Thomas Fuchs examines the process by which we all try to make sense of the real world by turning it into narrative. Born in Los Angeles in 1942 and with a screenwriter father, he grew up watching movie projects grow from ideas to finished films. His own career spans fiction and non-fiction in both print and on the screen. He served as Director of Research for a large documentary film company (Wolper Productions), then moved on to the writing and producing of documentaries and what is sometimes described as fact-based entertainment. His credits include years of staff writing for shows like You Asked For It and Ripley’s Believe It or Not, as well as multiple episodes of shows for A&E and The History Channel. His non-fiction print work includes A Concise Biography of Adolf Hitler (Berkley/Putnam Penguin, 2000). More recently, he has turned to the writing of fiction, with stories appearing in a variety of magazines (eg, Fiction International, Rosebud, J Journal, Harrington Gay Men’s Literary Quarterly, and anthologies (eg The Big Book of Bizarro, Queer Fish.) He lives in West Hollywood and keeps an office at an independent production facility which used to be the site of Columbia Pictures.
