When people ask Clive Barker what he does for a living, he says, "I'm an imaginer."



"It's hard to classify what I do," he explains. "And I think that the term 'artist' seems a little pretentious. What I do is live by my imagination."



Though Barker first came to the public's attention as a novelist and short story writer, he in no way limits himself to the printed page. His latest offering, currently airing on the Sci Fi Channel, is SAINT SINNER, a two-hour made-for-television movie he wrote the story for and executive produced about a 19th century monk sent forward in time to prevent two succubi from wreaking havoc in the current day.



"The main character is a member of a monastic order that acts like a repository for evil artifacts," says Barker. "Through the monk's own disobedience, he releases the monsters and is forced to be the one to track them down."
