The January winds whistle against our sliders as I write this entry, making me thankful for the warmth of my home. This year took many of the celebrities I grew up with making me cherish even more the loved ones I have in my life. I wish you and all those you love a happy and healthy new year.

And now, here is what’s UP AND COMING.
With the holidays, vacations and continued work on Wounded Angels, I have not scheduled any personal appearances for January or February at this time. More to come.
ROGER ZOTTI'S INTERVIEW AND REVIEW OF AMANDA'S ROOM: in the December issue of The Resident.
My thanks to Roger Zotti for interviewing me for The Resident and for his comments on Amanda's Room. Here is a scan of the interview.
The publication reaches over 100,000 residents in Connecticut and Rhode Island. While the paper editions have already been distributed, the on-line article will not appear until next month. I'll put the link to the on-line article here next month.
Here is the latest update on the book, the play, et. al.
As I finish my latest draft, I also picture myself accepting the Pulitzer or the Nobel Prize for literature. When I receive the latest feedback on that draft from my editors, I picture myself sitting on a Manhattan sidewalk holding a sign saying "I'll Write For Food." Nevertheless, once I get over my pity party, I get back to work rewriting. I'm now on my fifth full rewrite.
I met with the writer's group on Thursday and presented the opening scene of the play. Fortunately, with the group, the feedback is more immediate and in smaller bites so I can make the needed changes faster. I'm excited about the process and the potential. More to come.
Ilvy Dulack and Jean McGavin are planning the creation of a studio for performing voice-overs for commercials and other audio production work. We have concurrently been discussing their performing the narration for the audio book of Wounded Angels. I have also offered to perform the male roles if that works. The prospect of a simultaneous launch of the book, play and audio-book is very exciting. More to come.
Short and Sweet
That does it for this month. Thank you for spending a while with me. Until next month,
