About Bill

I'm the author of A Story is a Promise & The Spirit of Storytelling, a workbook that explores principles of storytelling. I review films to explore storytelling at www.storyispromise.com

In the last year I've created some author videos about the creative lives of Virginia Woolf, Oscar Wilde, Hemingway, Kafka and other authors. The videos are posted at www.youtube.com/oregonwritersspeak

I'm the recently retired office manager of Willamette Writers (August 2017) and involved in FilmLab, a competition for short scripts. The winning script is produced. Find out more at www.willamettewriters.com

I've recently purchased a DSLR camera and am interested in writing and shooting a few short, simple scripts.

I'm a produced playwright. I recently had a play produced in Brighton, England, and San Miguel in Mexico.

I'm currently teaching an online workshop on narrative tension.
