I hear filmmakers saying, 'I wanted to make to make a film about this issue, or this theme,' but I never start like that.
I love listening to songs that are from the heart and that touch the heart. So, love is the preferred theme for most of the songs that I sing.
I love theme parks but I'm a real chicken on rides. I'd rather invent scary rides for my books than go on them for real.
R. L. Stine
I would like to sing the theme tune of a big film - something like 'Titanic.'
