Home, to my surprise, is Evansville, Indiana. Actually, home is pretty much wherever my wife is, and since she works in the theatre department at the University of Evansville, I'm along for the ride. More importantly, I am a stay-at-home father. My son, Corey, is nearly three and he has no idea what to say when I tell him "Daddy is a writer." He does like the Brave Combo, bless his little heart, so if he weren't napping right now, he'd probably be up and dancing.
A few credits: Deaf Side Story, my first book-length work, should arrive this fall from Gallaudet University Press, while my short fiction has appeared in THEMA (Sept. '03), Red Rock Review (Aug. '03), The Bellevue Literary Review, The Café Irreal, Rain Crow, and others.
What I write most of the time are plays. Digging in the Margins, opened the 2001 New Voices of the Wild West festival through the Foothill Theatre Company in Californiaand I have recently returned from Foothill's 2002 festival, where I tried out a second play, Asylum. Asylum has since won the 2002 Maxim Mazumdar New Play Competition, sponsored by the Alleyway Theatre in Buffalo, New York. Asylum, re-titled Lines in the Sand, will get a full production run at Alleyway, Oct. 30 of this year through Nov. 23 (2003). Digging, meanwhile, will make a second appearance (again as a staged reading) at this summer's Utah Shakespeare Festival, and two other plays are finalists in contests in other parts of the country. I hope to see each and every one of you in the audience!
Five movies not to miss: Bliss, O Lucky Man, Donnie Darko, Paperhouse and Local Hero.
Five reasons to love Midnight Oil: politics, politics, politics, politics and great rock 'n' roll.
