Background Information

I spent many years in the theater as both an actor and an author.

As there are many parallels between the dramatic world of the theatre and the imagination rich world of young adult books, it was easy to make the bridge to writing children’s literature. 
My first exposure to theater was out of high school, where I had a speech and theatre scholarship at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. At the age of 19, I auditioned for my first professional show in Toronto, Canada, a musical called “The Me Nobody Knows.” After it closed a year later, I went to Europe and joined the cast of a French production of another musical, “Double V.” A few months later I found myself in the Danish production of “Hair.” I did “Hair” in several countries around the world, often in foreign languages.
Three years later it was time for a change, so I left the Tasmanian production of “Hair” and headed to London, where I was entreated to start an R&B group by John Worth, a noted producer. Thus, The Majestics were born. Four years and several world tours later, it was back to Canada for a series of TV shows, singing and playing my guitar. Eventually, I returned home to America’s west coast, where I had an unfortunate accident. Unable to play the guitar, I turned to writing. Thus, The Saga of Peter the Woodsman began. Soon my hand was better and I began to write musicals. “The Gramaphone Rag” was performed at Laney College in Oakland, California, later moving to San Francisco’s On Broadway Theater.
I currently live in Northern California with my family.
