There's no topic I'm afraid to explore. My areas of expertise include theater and the performing arts, literature, health and fitness, education and community activism.

ABOUT ME

Editor, journalist, playwright, novelist, teacher...I live many different lives, but at the heart of each one of them is a need to engage an audience, tell a good story, motivate thought, inspire creativity, broaden horizons, and have a little fun along the way. Throughout my career, I have served as a newspaper editor, playwright, theater director, journalist, and community advocate. My first novel, The Purple Bird, a fantasy geared toward young adults, came out in March 2019, and my plays have been produced onstage by Children's Theatre of Annapolis and Colonial Players. When I'm not writing or creating, you can usually find me going for obscenely long-distance runs or going on adventures with my canine companion, Tyrion the corgi.

THE PURPLE BIRD

March 2019

No matter how long he has yearned to escape his boring life as an ordinary teenager, nothing can prepare James Shannassy for the afternoon when he meets a figment bird called Archit and the two of them set off for the world of Nalgordia to break a centuries-old curse. Being the hero of his own fantasy adventure isn't exactly what James expected it to be, but when he finds himself caught up in an epic fight against a force of evil, he knows he might be the only one able to stop it. Archit's fate now rests entirely in his hands...and there's no turning back now!
