"To write is to truly live..."‚Äč

Unlike the Young Man in my play Doing Time, I have never equated writing with living. I have always, however, been in love with words and humbled by their power for good or for ill.  I write to transform, uplift, and heal.  

I was smitten by playwriting in college, and have pursued it ever since.  Poetry hooked me decades later, and I wrote a poetic drama, The Marriage of Mom & Dad, for my master's project and commentary.
