About Raleigh

I am a professionally-produced and published playwright and have had a screenplay twice optioned.

I have adapted several of my plays into screenplays as well as novels by Oliver Wendell Holmes and Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

I was born in Louisiana and am currently residing in Savannah, Georgia.

I've written 3 full-length plays about "The South", all have been produced: AND ALL I HAVE ADAPTED AS SCREENPLAYS

"I Am the Gumbo" (family comedy about Louisiana's Cajuns)

"The Ladies of the Sacred South" (5 little old ladies versus Academia)

"Possessed by the Past" (true story about a man who married his house)

Unique traits: To expand on the section to the right: I have a body, some hair, eyes, & don't care for spicy food and have a large collection of tee-shirts.
