I've been a professional writer since 1985 -- magazine and newspaper features, personality profiles, corporate communications and video scripts. I currently write a weekly column called "Much Ado About Nothing" for The Source Weekly newspaper in Brazoria County, Texas. It's just my snarky outlook on life and many of my columns are posted as part of my blog.

In 2014, I wrote my first full-length stage play, "Potato Gumbo," which was nominated for a 2016 Pulitzer Prize for drama (nominated means it didn't win, but I'm still proud that it was considered!). You can read an exert on my website Contact me directly if you're interested in securing production rights or come see the regional premier at Echo Theatre in Dallas in spring 2017.

Living in Saudi Arabia since February 2013 has amazed and baffled me. This is as close to the surface of the moon as I will ever be! Or hope to ever be again.
