I'm a screenwriter and author - I've been published four times under my own name, and have ghostwritten more novels and how-to books than I care to recall - I no longer do that work, as I consider it the writer's equivalent of prostitution (though it doesn't pay nearly as well as the world's "oldest profession" can! I'm joking a bit, but there's a lot of truth behind that). I'm also a book editor, and enjoy cowriting with those who have great stories to tell, but don't consider themselves to be writers. I know the ins and outs of self-publishing as well as going the conventional route (submitting book proposals, etc.) and am always happy to share that information with anyone who wants to compare notes.
I am actively seeking representation - either a manager and/or literary agent. I have four completed screenplays and a few others in development, as well as a stage musical, and look forward to making mutually beneficial connections. I use Final Draft.
On the other side of the coin, I love the theatre - have been in many musicals and several plays. These days I tend to prefer writing to performing, but also love directing. I was a professional singer for years - mostly pop/rock, '70s and '80s stuff. Still enjoy singing, and also writing music (primarily lyrics) I'm always open to collaborating. In addition to acting and directing, in the past I worked for a talent agency, coaching actors for all types of auditions, and I still love doing performance and audition coaching for actors and singers, either by Skype or in person (if someone is in or willing to come to meet with me in Palm Springs).
I thoroughly enjoy ALL creative aspects, and am very open to talking with anyone in the Palm Springs area who might know of a niche I could fill in any of these arenas.
I am getting back into doing voiceover, and possibly radio (yes, I was also an announcer on the air at one point in time :-) So you could say that I'm eclectic, but hey - aren't we all?
I'm always happy to discuss your projects, concepts, etc., with you :-)
