-You decided to embark on writing and directing in 2010 Yes, I wrote, produced and directed a short called SISSY, a twenty minute short film based on my travels with the magician I mentioned earlier. It was accepted to over thirty-five film festivals and won dozens of awards including Best Film at DTLFF and Best Acting to entire cast at Amsterdam International. I also received a distribution deal for the film on the cable channel ShortsHD and internationally on iTunes. The short film is currently being developed/pitched as a cable TV series called CHARLIE AND THE DOVE which I created with my writing partner Kerri Randles.
I am not a big fan of happy endings for my stories. I don’t want to tell them to be didactic or aspirational or to wrap them up in a bow or impress you with my story structure skills. I only hope it is successful in being authentic, opening up a dialogue or connecting with someone still struggling, still looking to connect and know their not alone.
