Personal Information
I am a writer and editor with experience as well in teaching, office management, and counselling. In recent years, while writing a novel, I have made a living freelance writing, re-writing, and editing. I have worked for both commercial and creative concerns.
I am an American who has lived for over thirty years in London, where I've had three plays performed on stage. I am also a screenwriter, political commentator, poet, and song writer. Recently I nearly won the contract to write the lyrics for a new Hollywood musical, which will be titled Circus Welt.
I am a frequent visitor to the Philippines, where I have laid down plans to establish a campaign to finance tuitions for children too poor to go to school.
I am also establishing an online service for tutors of English, “Entertaining English”, which will utilize actors to dramatize, on video, comical scripts teaching English grammar.

Other Writing, and Editing
Last play translated into German and Russian. I hope to have a new play on soon.
My screenplay, about the life of a World War 2 veteran after his war, has attracted interest from big names in Hollywood.
I have also written hundreds of essays and feature articles, most of them in recent years on Facebook, where I have a following.
I have a collection of poems. Some of my songs (lyrics) have been sent by contacts to well established singers.
I was a commentator, and London correspondent, for a Dallas-based internet radio station.
My editing and rewriting has involved novels (some well known) and other full-length published texts, and screenplays and stage plays for other writers. I have edited (and re-written) everything from romantic songs to political argument.
