I'm a New Englander. I was born in New Hampshire and currently live in Vermont. I've been a writer forever, whether short stories, novels, screenplays, children's, poetry--not too successfully, but that doesn't stop me. I'm a standup comedian, so now I'm writing comedy as well. I've lived in Boston five times, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles twice. I was an extra in "Forrest Gump." Wow. I make my living in various ways.
