Elliot Thorpe is a freelance writer, having previously worked for Starlog and with the sites Den of Geek, Shadowlocked and Doctor Who TV as well as for Encore, the magazine for the entertainment professional.
His first novel ‘Cold Runs the Blood’ was released in 2013 and he contributed to the charity anthology ‘Seasons of War – Tales from a Time War’ in 2015. He has short stories published in the anthologies ‘Grave Matters’ (2014), ‘The Extraordinary Lives of People Who Never Existed’ (2015) and ‘The Librarian’ (2017).
In 2017, he succeeded his late father Bernard H Thorpe as the DMA president, completing ‘Just Dino – A Personal Recollection of Dean Martin’, a work Bernard started some years ago with Dino’s permission. A revised version, ‘Dean Martin – Recollections’, in hardback and expanded with new and archival interviews, was released in 2018.
Elliot has a regular column in the San Francisco-based quarterly magazine ‘Search’, issues of which are downloadable here. He also contributes to redshirtsalwaysdie.com and thedoctorwhocompanion.com. and serves as a producer for an established production company creating original audio dramas and podcasts for the US audience.
He is proud to be our association president, saying: “It’s an honor to have taken the baton, to continue the work both my father and Dino started back in 1960. While the DMA is a little different now (we are non-profit with no subscription membership), we will continue to promote and showcase Dino’s career and life in the best and most-respectful way we can. Incredibly, we will reach our 60th Anniversary in 2020 and I hope the DMA will keep going beyond our Diamond Jubilee.”
