As a child, I was insanely devoted to PBS, vintage movies, classic novels, and day-dreaming. Many years later, not a whole lot has changed.
My most rewarding career has been as a theater specialist for youth. Crafting games and plays that make the past and community spirit cool in the eyes of kids has been my greatest joy. I've led over 500 history and art related programs for youth and their families. At the pinnacle of my theater work, I adapted and staged a full scale, outdoor production of 'A Christmas Carol' in a historic downtown setting. Mother Nature added her own special effects by producing wind and snow precisely on cue.
Novel writing is my focus now. My lighthearted historical will soon be released by The Wild Rose Press. Yay! My wonderful editor, Nan Swanson, convinced me to change my working title. It's now called Rules of Engagement. The cover by Diana Carlile is absolutely charming. Now comes the tough work. Promotion.
Meanwhile, I'm reworking a Nathaniel Hawthorne short story into a full-blown New England Gothic/Fairytale gone bad. I love the imagery and the feel of a good Halloween story.
I've got a mind vault of stories begging to be brought to light. This is my special place to share thoughts and dreams about writing.
