Recent Activity  -


I have written three novels which are now ready for publishing. I have also produced two CDs, and have re-written two scripts, and my blog is doing well. Currently working on an Indie film. At this juncture, and as retired Behavior Therapist, I'm well set with respect to my goals, which by the way, have been met. I'm a retired counselor with a PhD, in Psychology. Upon retirement, I decided to revive my career in the entertainment field, which has included the following: Recording Artist, Radio Broadcaster, Record Producer, Concert Promoter, Jazz Drummer, Sax Player, Key Boards, Voice Coach, and Concert Performer. Through the years, I have worked as a studio musician, back up singer on TV, recordings, Co-host of a pilot TV show, and a film. I blog.
