Kathleen-May Llamas of Purple Lipstick and a Purple Soul Gem posted a review of Wicked Game, saying ” it starts with a suave reference to the Chris Isaak song, and it ends with a twist on the whole ‘good guy rescues the damsel-in-distress’ archetype”

In the summer of 1986, children were traumatized when Optimus Prime sacrificed himself to stop his archrival, Megatron. But it wasn’t Megatron who pulled the trigger, it was a writer named Ron Friedman.

Ron Friedman wrote Transformers: The Movie. He wrote the five-part miniseries that launched GI Joe. He is close friends with Stan Lee and helped Stan develop The Marvel Action Hour, featuring Iron Man and Fantastic Four. He has written episodes of All in the Family, Happy Days, and Fantasy Island. In addition to his writing credentials, Ron is an architect and a teacher at Chapman University.

In 2014, Ron plans to chronicle his experiences as a writer in the memoir, I Killed Optimus Prime. The book promises a fascinating look behind the scenes of the shows that defined our childhood.

I had the privilege of speaking with Ron about his career, his friendship with Stan Lee, what he thought when he first saw the Transformers, how Orson Welles became Unicron, and why he didn’t want to kill Optimus Prime.

So, to kick off the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers, Ron Friedman, the man who killed Optimus Prime.

The Skull King

Last year, my short story, The Skull King, was published by Exiles Magazine. Now, it is available for you to own as an e-book. 

Wilbert Stanton, editor of Exiles Magazine, said The Skull King was  “A refreshing and fun read. It reminded me that there are still true fantasy writers who refuse to conform to these new age fantasy archetypes that are diluting the genre.”
