I had been acting and writing scripts for decades when I moved to LA in 2008. I was in a number of plays, a TV episode, and a few indie films before I was diagnosed with cancer a year later.
I'm not finished with this aggressive disease yet, but I have nearly finished writing my book, Anal Cancer is Really Sh*tty. I've found great responses when reading the first chapter aloud to small groups. I am eager to finish the final editing, and set out on a book tour in the very near future. I'll also be narrating an audiobook version to be produced very soon.
Making people laugh about cancer was never an item on my bucket list, but it has become the delight of my life, second only to the unending love and support from family and the greatest friends in the world. Humans are awesome!
I still have several screenplays to finish and pitch, and I'd love to do some more stage and film acting.
Cancer can suck it! Death can kiss my mutilated a$$! I'm not stopping!
