Thank you to all my readers. Our conversations and correspondence are the best part of my every day.
Middle Aged American Tao
Elegant, simple and immense. A novel of great importance to our struggling selves. Cheating wives, a self-crippling Adonis, urine-phobic land baron, outpatient psych patients next door, wonderfully erotic endeavors, and a drug addicted son tied up in the basement; this is the story of Alex. Recently early retired, he wakes one morning from a dream of developing a new Tai Chi form.
Each morning before dawn he wanders down to the bay to stand silently awaiting the first intuition of movement. Instead, broken elements of his past converge on him like whirlwinds merging into a monster life storm.
Of Little Men With Flowers
Marcus leaves a job assignment in turmoil and seeks solace with his estranged grandfather. For the first time in his well disciplined life he is experiencing an unprecedented explosion of rampant uncontrollable emotion. Aside from his grandfather he has nowhere else to go. But the old man is more than he bargained for and pushes him through a series of self-realizations that throw him so far over the edge he fears he will never make it back to the comfort of what he called life. Voodoo. Corporate theft. Entities. Rebirths. Crooked old cons. Beautiful deadly women. Bull Sharks. Serpent men and staple guns.
Take Me Home
A satire and a ghost story. Set in the early to mid 1960's this play focuses on the misconceptions of blacks and whites towards each other, and the undying love between a father and daughter. Three acts. A wonderful, witty, unveiling of our limitations and strengths.
"I spent a night at the mansion in Micanopy, in the pumphouse, and woke from a frightening dream with a song in my head. For weeks I walked around singing this song, wondering what the hell to do with it. Finally, the story behind the song unfolded like an old memory and I sat and wrote the play in one sitting. Maybe it's true...I would not doubt it." -Scavinold
