Thanks!

I was always a huge reader in school--the kid who won the award for reading the most books. I started writing because I wanted to tell stories that would thrill other people the way the books I loved had thrilled me. Ultimately, that's still what inspires me. I just want to tell exciting, entertaining stories about characters people care about. Hopefully I've succeeded.(less)

A little musical theatre from the Willett family

Regina Lyric Musical Theatre, of which both I and my wife are past presidents and life members, found a way to make musical theatre despite Covid-19 restrictions, producing Flip the Script: Broadway in Reverse, an online concert of gender-swapped Broadway songs, May 7, 8, and 9, 2021.
