Thank you for visiting my website.
As an author, playwright, school and library visitor, and workshop leader, I keep busy. I hope to share a bit of what I’ve been up to on these pages.
Way high on my list at the moment is the casting of the film version of “Death Valley: A Love Story.” Ultimately this will become a DVD with workbook available from Samaritan Counseling Center (http://scclanc.org) for use in grief counseling. But for now, I get to witness one of my stage plays being recreated on film by the award-winning Andrea Campbell of Natural Light Films! Exciting! More about “Death Valley: A Love Story” under “Plays in Progress.”
I write books, mainly for young readers, and plays, mainly for young audiences. Preschool through high school. I also write for adults and travel to schools, conferences, workshops, and theaters all over the country to share ideas and experiences, teach creative writing and marketing techniques, and develop new scripts. Here in Lancaster, PA, I delight in working with the public schools and libraries, Lancaster Literary Guild, Millersville University’s Ware Center, United Way’s High Five Lancaster initiative, Lancaster Day Care Center, New Choices Career Development, the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and other organizations and colleagues to coordinate programs that encourage literacy and creativity. I consider myself very lucky to be able to do the work I love and meet so many bright, caring, talented folks along the way.
Please visit the pages listed in the sidebar to find out more about my books, plays, events, and presentations. Note that the drop-down menus under “Books I’ve Written” and “Published Plays” lead to only a small sample of my published work. For the full list, hit the main “Books I’ve Written” or “Published Plays” button.
This website is and always will be a work in progress. Comments, questions, and suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks for stopping by!
