So, after a focused year of redrafting Family Rules

[twice, no less – once online and a second time prior to submission]

the book is done and published.

Here’s the front cover:

And, as if that wasn’t enough, as I neared the end of Family Rules, I decided to publish the poetry I came out with in the past year or so as Garbled Glittering Glamours.

As I was doing that, I also dusted off my first original screenplay – an idea from 2001 that had been gestating for a decade. In the past week

[yes, week!]

that’s gone from loose concept to complete first draft screenplay: Team Building. A tightening re-write and I’ll begin working the networks to try and find a production house that wants to take it on. I’ll be writing a lot more about the Team Building process, so please stay tuned.

Next? Well, Jane and I were chatting yesterday and there are a couple of really good local theatre companies that do pre-Broadway productions – I feel an original play coming along. I already know the title and central dilemma – too early to jinx my process and publish that, but judging by the speed Team Building landed, this one may be just as quick.

And don’t those read just like famous last words? :o)
