Gary Bullock was born and grew up in the hills of East Tennessee, lived and taught in New England, where he got his first SAG job. He met his mate, Mil Nicholson there, and they were married in the Merrimack Repertory Theatre on the set of The Importance of Being Earnest. They moved to the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina, where he won his first film role in Winter People. He toured with Poetry Alive!, performing poetry in schools all over the East. He and Mil also worked in dinner theatre, and created and carried out an artist's residency program in theatre in Western North Carolina schools.
Gary and Mil moved to Los Angeles in 1992, just in time for the riots, the fires, the floods, and the Northridge earthquake, and , oh yes, a co-starring part in Twin Peaks --Fire Walk With Me..
In 2005, they moved back to the hills of WNC, and are writing, recording audiobooks for Librivox.org, tending a large organic garden, an assortment of fruit and small animals, and cutting lots of firewood.
Gary's screenplay, RIDGE RUNNER, about a Civil War hero of his home town, Elizabethton, Tennessee, is looking for a producer, as is his ELSEWHEN, a Science-fiction romance. He is now working on a screenplay memoir of Gordon McDaniel, a World War II P-51D fighter pilot, who became an Ace in one day.
Gary's novelization of the screenplay, ELSEWHEN, is published by Abbott Press.
Gary's actor heroes are Gary Cooper (after whom his father named him), and Harrison Ford (who owes much to Gary Cooper).
