Today, gentle readers (and the rest of you) I will answer the first question. See previous post…or don’t.
When did you first start writing? Was being a writer something you always aspired to be?
The Horn Book for Children published one of my poems when I was 7. They paid me five dollars, which in a time of nickel Cokes and popsicles was big money.
I’ve co-authored over a dozen murder mystery scripts for Now This, the improv troupe I direct. Collectively they’ve been performed a at least 200 times* mostly for young adults audiences, but also for a lot of companies that make lists with numbers like ‘500’ in their titles**. I like to write in ‘victim’ parts for myself so I can leave the show after 30 minutes and read a book.
