“Music in my veins, movies on my mind, my heart holds a pen, IT my profession.”
Ethan McGuire grew up in the mystic Missouri Ozarks, but nine years ago he moved to the Florida Panhandle, where he lives currently with his wife, and life near the ivory sands of the Gulf of Mexico has had a profoundly positive effect on him. By day, Ethan is a healthcare information technology professional. By night, he is a writer.
Ethan is a co-admin, editor, and writer of music, TV, and film articles for E.D. — Music, Movies, Etc. (yes, the acronym is an intentional joke) at TheEDBlog.com and admin, editor, and writer for The Flummoxed — A Writer’s Journey at TheFlummoxed.com as Ethan Collins-McGuire. Ethan has also contributed film writing to Three Rows Back (a movie review of The Princess Bride) as Ethan Collins; poetry to BJU Press’ Inscriptions Aspiring Writers Club (poem “Snow”), the West Florida Literary Federation’s newsletter The Legend (poems “Newlywed Song” and “Dreamdust”), The Dark Sire Literary Magazine (poem “The Reaper’s Revelation”), Better Than Starbucks Poetry Magazine (poem “Absence of Desire”), and Vita Brevis Poetry Magazine (poem “Sundown Chapel”) as Ethan McGuire; and he has appeared on the GroupThink Productions film and culture podcast as Ethan Collins. Ethan’s poem “The Reaper’s Revelation” has also been turned into a song by Fernando Fidanza in his YouTube series “Old Folk for New Poets.”
You can find Ethan on Twitter, Letterboxd, Listnd, and IMDb as AHeavyMetalPen, and at GoodReads as Ethan Collins-McGuire. He also temporarily ran the still-live Twitter account NickCageQuotes. Ethan has a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Systems with a minor in English from Pensacola Christian College and is a proud member of the West Florida Literary Federation and IT Gulf Coast.
