Blake M. Petit is a writer, columnist, reviewer, podcaster, actor, director, and teacher from Ama, Louisiana. He is the author of several novels, short stories and nonfiction examinations of geek culture available both in print and in eBook form. He’s the co-host, with whoever the hell is available that week, of the All New Showcase pop culture podcast and ruminates about movies at the Reel to Reel film study blog. Blake is a member of the board of directors of the Thibodaux Playhouse theatre company in Thibodaux, Louisiana, where his original stage play The 3-D Radio Show was produced in 2004 and again in 2016. In a former life as a newspaper editor, his weekly Think About It column won the Louisiana Press Association Award for best column in 2001. In his free time, he teaches high school English, which at the moment pays better than the rest of his more impressive-sounding endeavors put together.
Blake lives in Ama, Louisiana, with his remarkably understanding wife, Erin, as well as a sizable army of action figures, statues, and LEGO Minifigs.
