A longtime storyteller. Every report card?: "Bright kid. Talks too much." So, I switched to writing , compulsively putting fingers-to-keys: authoring children's chapter books (which I'm now adapting to family feature screenplays), wrote an advice column as 'Afternoon T.' in the Santa Clarita Valley, have a small bucket full of short films, web series and more. There's a reason why I have a cabinet filled with mugs for afternoon tea.
