My screenplay, SCABS, received the Best Short Screenplay Award in October 2018 at the Oaxaca Filmfest, Best Screenplay at the Atlanta Comedy Film Festival and Best Television Comedy Episode at the recent Portland Comedy Film Festival. The thirteen-minute version of The Audition (Bronco’s Dolls Go to Hollywood) was completed July, 2019. An abbreviated five-minute version was selected last spring for inclusion in the AT&T Create-A-Thon . I’ve written five screenplays, nine full-length plays, three one-act plays, fourteen ten-minute plays. My short play, Fortune Kooky, was produced a year ago at the Tampa Bay Theatre Festival. My short play, Fourth-Quarter Pick-Up was performed in Tampa August 2019, at the Tampa Bay Theatre Festival. The writer/director/producer, Jeff VanDavis, optioned the play for development later this year. My stories, poetry and illustrations have appeared in newspapers and literary magazines. My manuscript Commutin’ Train (please check out my web site to see the first four spreads and listen to the reading of the narratives) and my novel Long Walk Back were recently completed. I've studied with American Book Award winner, Bob Shacochis, playwright Janet Burroway, Marlon Barton (O.Henry Finalist), and poet Peter Huggins. I am a member of the Dramatist Guild and a member of the Canadian Playwrights Guild of Canada.

So excited that the MegaFest 16th Annual Film Festival and Writer's Competition understood what I was trying to accomplish with The Audition (Bronco's Dolls Go to Hollywood). I am looking forward to attending the festival if we can get through this virus.
