How people 'cope with' and 'overcome from' adversity in their lives is the common thread in what I do. From the first musical that I wrote at 14 years old, I have shared the theme of being different/diverse and accepting people for those differences. No matter if they are adult books that are controversial and for adult eyes only or calling on my background in children's theater and writing for young eyes - I want to create stories that show how someone can persevere and use tenacity to make their own personal journey; learning and growing from the experience.
I am really looking forward to 2014 with two diverse projects. One is a sequel to my children's book on autism called Chicken Boy: A Super Hero with Autism Deals with Doctors & Dentists. The other is a screenplay I've written adapting an award-winning LGBT thriller. I am co-producer for the indie film HE IS GONE and absolutely thrilled to bring this Drake Braxton novel to the screen.
