I received a B.A. & M.A. from San Francisco State University in Theatre (Acting & Directing). Passing up a great teaching job, I fell victim to the “lure of the big time” and came to New York. After much pounding of the pavement, I decided to take control of my own future and founded “A Company Of Players Repertory Theatre,” where I staged five plays over the next few years: Maugham’s “The Breadwinner,” G.B. Shaw’s “You Never Can Tell,” Priestly’s Dangerous Corner,” Tarkington’s “Clarence,” Jean Giradeoux’s “‘Ring Around The Moon,” ” Priestly’s Goodnight Children,” and J.M.Barrie’s “Dear Brutus.”For The Drama Committee I directed Oscar Wilde’s A Woman Of No Importance and An Ideal Husband and Gogol’s The Inspector General.
I believe there should be something for everyone! I’ve read hundreds (literally) of M/M books and usually found myself disappointed because the great majority are written by middle-aged, married women with two/three kids, a dog, a cat, a turtle and a tank of fish who live in Kansas, garden, and write minutely described, sleazy sex scenes every four pages with little or no characterization or plot. But, I kept trying, occasionally finding a great book. So, I decided to write the kind of book I like to read: multi-level charaters, strong plot, and lots of romance.
