I've written numerous plays, including Fire on Earth, Flight, Constant State of Panic, Pieces of Whitey, Blinders, and Reading the Mind of God, which have been staged in theatres across the country and around the world. My first novel, Tornado Siren, was published by Behler Publications in 2006, and is now published as an ebook on Smashwords and other sites.
I like to start things: I helped startBoston's Rhombus Playwrights writers' group, the Chameleon Stage theatre company in Denver, the Bare Bones Theatre company in New York, the publication Market InSight... for Playwrights, and the on-line Playwrights' Submission Binge.
My plays are published by Playscripts, Brooklyn Publishers, Heuer, Smith & Kraus, Original Works Publishers, and Volcano Quarterly.
I am a member of the Dramatists Guild and StageSource. My radio plays have been broadcast on NPR and elsewhere. I blog about the writing life at The Writing Life x3.
Both Blinders and Reading the Mind of God were nominated for Best New Play by the Denver Drama Critics Circle. Awards I've won include the Colorado Arts Innovation Award, a Playwriting Fellowship from the Colorado Council on the Arts, the Festival of Emerging American Theatre, the New American Theatre Festival, the In10 UMBC Competition, and the Market House Theatre One-Act Play Award.
In my spare time, I like to farm. My latest farm project is the Pen and Pepper Farm in Dracut, MA.

The love story is very strange and different so much so that I had a little bit of a hard time wrapping my head around it. The tornado parts were well written even for some strange acting ones. If you are looking for something a little "different" to read...this is it.

Wow! What a neat story! "Tornado Siren" is a very entertaining blend of relationships, weather, adventure, geography and romance. Nicely done! The author is a playwright with considerable experience in storytelling. He has a unique ability to weave a story on a basic framework and then let the characters evolve in the readers imagination. He really has a way with words and ideas. You just can't put this book down. Great read!
