Happy New year!

I'm starting the New Year with a positive outlook! Last year had so many wonderful high notes, dozens of productions all over, including three university productions (two of A Gulag Mouse and one of Trash) the publication and premiere of a new one act Rising - which has already raised money for hurricane relief, and I hope will continue to do so in the coming year; and a couple of wonderful awards - my short screenplay Eight Ball won the Hammond House/Centre University International Literary Prize 2017 - Screenplay Category, and The Lady Demands Satisfaction, a sword-slinging farce, made me the first three time winner of the 2017/2018 Joining Sword and Pen Competition. So, it's been a good year, and I'm hoping 2018 will continue the trend!
