After thirty plus years of pounding a calculator, I have switched to the keyboard. Swapping numb3rs for letters. And now finally, I am able to dial a phone number without mixing up the top and bottom rows.
In the main I am relating my memories from my youth up, and also adventures in historical research. And I will touch on my writing – poetry, plays, screenplays, articles and hopefully books.
I have serializing my fourth screenplay, “Rebel Treasure” which you can read here on my blog.
Two other film script projects are on hold currently as I work on:
- ▪ Outlining a book that will cover an important year for the US Navy and its part in the American Civil War.
- Looking for a venue for my first stage play “The OutR daRk.” (Very few people have read it so far, and I am afraid I am too busy with other projects to push it out there).
- my stage musical – “Wilber,” based on the life of William Wilberforce, the man who led the fight against the slave trade in the British Parliament at the end of the 18th century – has been finished!! See announcement. I am currently composing the music – which I am finding an absolute joy to do!
You can check out my flash fiction project entitled #DiaryoftheEndoftheWorld on its page here.
And be sure to check out “The Adventures of Howard Kazanjian.” I have covered his time as an assistant director on The Wild Bunch, Camelot and Finian’s Rainbow, and am currently talking to him about experiences working for William Conrad and Hy Averback. Lots to come in the future, including his time as executive producer on “Raiders of the Lost Ark” and “The Return of the Jedi.”
