I really enjoy writing. It gives purpose to my life, especially considering my Multiple Sclerosis! Favorite Quotes - "True friends stab you in the front." - Oscar Wilde - "Just Remember, Kid---It's All Bullshit." - Robert Mitchum to Nick Nolte at The Academy Awards. "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persuasive one" - Einstein. "I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member." - Groucho Marx. And my Favorite Quote, "I'd rather write than fuck." - Harlan Ellison. I'm planning to turn that one into Tee-shirts, Tote-bags and Bumper Stickers...I'm certain his estate won't mind. Another VERY Important Quote is by Charles Beaumont, "Attaining success in Hollywood is like climbing a gigantic mountain of cow flop, in order to pluck one perfect rose from the summit. And you find when you’ve made that hideous climb … you’ve lost the sense of smell." I am also a Novelist and a Poet. Writing is my life!
