Behind Blue Eyes

I was searching for my Tax ID number in my email when a found an old copy of the script I sent to myself for back up. I almost forgot I wrote it. I wrote this not long after the Bush v. Gore election. The premise was simple, what if a blue-eye golden boy from…

The Gamer

The Gamer was a bedtime story the kids asked me to write down. I forgot somethings and added others. Enjoy. King Franz considered himself a merciful king. Yes, he was not the ruthless tyrant type not like King Ala-Mala-Bala.  Sure, Franz employed a food taster to ensure no one was trying to poison him, but after…

First Chapter: Gross Potions

Last year I wrote a kids book. It was a slow-burn first draft written in a quirky, on-the-nose Wes Anderson Style. Some interest but the feedback was it was quirky and on-the-nose. I get it, not everyone’s internal voice sounds like Alec Baldwin Still digging the idea behind the book, I worked on other projects and…

Daylight Bleeds

I wrote this script almost twenty years ago. It chronicles an experiment on a man convicted of murder. His memory is erased, replaced with a new narrative and he’s released back into the public. I like the idea of rehabilitation but I’m sure I’d do everything differently now but enjoyed re-reading. Daylight Bleeds (PDF)

The Scary Derriery

Writer note: The Scary Derriery will not get your child to stop using potty words but it will give them a wider array of words to use describe their butt. Write with your kids, it’s fun and it gives you the freedom to coin new words. How many words for butt can you find in…
