2017: I’m pitching my published novel, Dancing on the Cellar Door, for a 10-13 episodic series after the initial 2 hour premiere.

2016: Memoir says, “publish me. Sell me.”
I yodel back, “I’m Still Alive,
What’s Your Excuse?”

~ DANCING ON THE CELLAR DOOR is a tale of revelation set in 1992 - a dance with the past that leads to the light of the future.

Conrad, a famous actor and Margaret, a rich southern belle, are half-siblings who inherit an Island from a father they dislike and never trusted. So why are they shocked to discover each other exists?

They arrive on their Island to finalize the Will with its executor, Sophie, the curator of a secret and the Goddess of wisdom who unlocks the mysteries of the Cellar Door and the Cellar.

When tempers are close to exploding, Myeck arrives. He is Sophie’s eternal mate and the guardian of fossils and souls.

The Island is full of magic and mystery and it soon becomes apparent that dancing is good for the heart, honesty hurts but can be withstood, and laughter is the preferred medicine for a vigorous spirit, along with a sprinkle of forbidden love and a splash of salmonberry wine.

2015: My screenplay, LOVE IN HIS VEINS, is completed and out there, floating through the ether like a leather clad nymphomaniac, screaming “look at me, look at me,” (hat tip to Tennessee Williams).

~ It is 1974 when Grayson Dobbs and Tony Love arrive in San Francisco, separately, on very different missions and long before AIDS has entered the parlance of Castro Street and the men who live there. What Grayson and Tony discover about each other and the men around them will forever change all their lives and write the first chapter in an ongoing history of sex and love, deceipt and death, and the hunted and the hunters. One thing is certain, in this explosive script, there is love in Grayson’s veins and it’s deliberate.

2013: A new project has me very excited. Stay tuned. OOPS, WAIT A MINUTE - here’s the truth.

2015: I wasted 2 years of my life writing BEND:

My cohort in the project
didn’t follow through
like he said
he chased a young actor instead
tried to make himself
and the young actor famous
while abandoning BEND.
The young actor didn’t work out
for Brend
bad news for him.

“No regrets, coyote,” Joni Mitchell sings.
Love you, Joni, but “yeah, right!” on this one.

2016: Memoir: I’M STILL ALIVE, WHAT’S YOUR EXCUSE

The Livesays, Hacklers, Harringtons, Beasleys and Campbells are too passionate to ignore and too hateful not to love. My father and mother make a great team until they divorce. Turns out I was born into this mess of people I didn’t know. Then I got to know them. And the best news is, I survived it, I am still here.
