A two act, full length stage play I completed a couple of years ago is going to receive a staged reading over Zoom from the Theater for the New City, a New York theater company in the East Village. My play is a workplace drama titled Dermalogic, and is about a small skin care company … Continue reading Upcoming Staged Reading
And now that the failed experiment of elevating a reality TV show host with multiple bankruptcies, many stiffed creditors, a long history of fleecing the taxpayers, a childlike temperament, a superficial religiosity, a vast narcissism, an enamorment with dictators, a complete ignorance of Constitutional law, and zero electoral experience into the White House is coming … Continue reading Finally!
Actually it's rather hard to forget about voting because of all the coverage of this contentious election. Plus, record early voting means many of you have already voted, either in person or by mail, including myself. I won't go into the candidates or the issues since those have been plenty discussed and most people have … Continue reading Don’t Forget To Vote!

(Here I go again with another Fibbing Friday post going against my parents' hopes for me to be an honest person (sorry Mom and Dad). But on the plus side these fibbing forays have sharpened my writing skills and making stuff up skills. This one was prompted by pcguyiv, and hopefully my answers are preposterous, … Continue reading Fibbing Friday (10/16/20)
(A short stage play in which the main character is stuck inside the darkness of a nightmare, then comes across something unexpected. I originally wrote this for a theatre company in San Francisco looking for nightmare themed short plays, but it was turned down, so I rewrote it and posted it here.) CAST OF CHARACTERS … Continue reading Your Worst Nightmare: A Game Show

In this visual internet age, the radio doesn't have the popularity it once did, but it still retains its own particular magic. Turn on a switch, spin a dial, and you can hear music that travels across … Continue reading 99 Word Prompt: Heard It On The Radio
I recently finished a novel called The Dead End by British author Ellie Scott. Despite the grim title it's a very enjoyable read, and the first novel I've read on Kindle. The story begins with 20 year old Maddy Ward discovering that she has just died after being ran over by a car. Admittedly a … Continue reading Novel Recommendation: The Dead End
(Here I go again with more Fibbing Friday shenanigans when I should be doing something more constructive and honest, but this is too much fun. This one is prompted by pcivguy, and the theme is US history. Let's see how accomplished of a liar this history major is. Link below) https://pcguyiv.wordpress.com/2020/09/04/fibbing-friday-september-4th-2020/ Who was the first … Continue reading Fibbing Friday (9/4/20)
(Once again I'm filling out another Fibbing Friday questionnaire, this one prompted by pesitivity 101. The theme covers a number of subjects, and I hope I answered them as untruthfully as I could. Link below.) https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/08/28/fibbing-friday-28th-august/ 1. What is the difference between a gooseberry and a grape? No one knows where gooseberries come from, or … Continue reading Fibbing Friday (8/28/20)
