My play Prince of Peace, about an eerie confrontation in a funeral home, will be performed as part of the 4th Street Theatre’s Ten-Minute Play Festival in Chesterton, Indiana. Performances will be on August 19-21 and August 25-28.
My one-act play Honor Flight, about a veteran’s first and last trip to the Vietnam Wall in Washington, will be performed on January 28, 29, and 30th as part of the Conservative Theatre Festival. The Festival will take place at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin, Ohio.
I have collected all my short plays into one volume titled Ten-Minute Plays. The plays cover a range of genres—from the comedy of a pair of ice dancers squabbling over their routine to the tragedy of a dying veteran at the Vietnam Wall. To purchase a copy, please go to:
The Untimely Adventures of Mimi: George and Martha Washington
Mimi, Percy, and Benjamin are back at it! (Fans of their first book, in which they accidentally erase Christopher Columbus from history, will quickly realize the danger of that.)
This time, their destination is George and Martha Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate in 1797.
Really, what could go wrong?

Tangerine on Book Club for Kids
At last! Here is a link to the Tangerine feature I did back in March for Book Club for Kids. Covid, of course, intervened.
The Untimely Adventures of Mimi: Christopher Columbus
I have a new book out that is a collaboration with my daughter Amanda and my grandniece Kristina. It is a rollicking time travel story with lots of illustrations, and it just might change the world. Check out the Mimi page on this website.
