The new year is starting out with a wonderful invitation to sunny Santa Barbara! I hope that some of you will be able to attend this event.
The co-artistic directors of the brand new PlayFest Santa Barbara -- Michael Gros and Jeffrey Meek -- have decided to include a reading of my new play "If I Did This" in their festival. Michael will be directing.
"If I Did This" synopsis:
A grieving mystery writer is hired to ghostwrite the "story of the century" -- but finds himself becoming part of the story instead.
