Drama/comedy/adventure writer, screenplays and fiction and picture books for children and adults in the book department. I have a few books on Amazon. Illustrated children's book (Po'Bird), a book of graphic travel essays of the south of France and a book of short stories.
My stories run along the skein of humorous adventures — the circumstances of survival, rejection, love. My protagonists are generally living out some fish of water experience. And through their adventures, carve out an arrival at some kind of truth. True family, place on the planet, self, partnership, etc.
I have a big interest in Native American history. I believe there is a great need to write the stories that bring people closer to their humanity and iconize, less. My paternal grandmother is Lakota. A fascinating woman from, now archived history in the Smithsonian. Her great uncle was Chief Gall. Many fascinating stories — I've just begun to scratch the surface.
I'm working on two picture books at the moment and final touches on two comedy film scripts and my pitches.
