THE PASSION OF MARY is my latest play, and I can send a script to schools and other theater companies seeking a large cast. The play is about 17th Century Mary Dyer, a Quaker who was hung by Boston Puritans 35 years before the Salem Witch Trials.

I’ve had hip, indie success as a playwright, with two indie productions and some readings. I’ve also had average success as a screenwriter, like most of the folks in the screenwriting segment of the population, I’ve written a few scripts; now I’m turning one of them into a Great American novel!

September 11 affected me in a “use your energy” kind of way. After working with the Westchester County Mental Health Dept. to help those dealing with emotional issues of September 11, I created a book about ways we can use our energy to help people.
PAWS FOR THOUGHT; HOW TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOUR CAT IS THINKING was published in the UK with Rockwell Books. (I’m pleased to say that when Daedalus books stocked it, it sold out and hit the number one spot on their charts… above Christopher Hitchens’ book. I have a limited amount of copies that you can order for $15.99 (which includes shipping). 🙂

My first professional music production, GOT MY EYE ON YOU, SANTA by Jody Quine and the Big Mr. C (aka Dan Berggren). now available on all digital stores including CDBaby:
Buy it year ’round!
SANTA is also looking for cool covers. I can’t wait to hear the song sexy and slow like Maria Muldaur “Midnight at the Oasis” or Bette Midler “Do Ya Wanna Dance.” It would love to be sung by a Latina and played every year alongside of Romeo Santos. You can sing it if you’re an Asian Pop artist. Contact my publisher for Licensing and Covers at Tel: 011 27 11 438 7000

Appearance on the Parrot Literary corner, reading from my book “The Leighton Explosion.”

My poem “Feed Your Parents Well” appears on the Grammy-nominated “Healthy Food For Thought: Good Enough to Eat.”
