No. 1 in Australia!

I was very excited and more than a little proud to see that “Monologues They’llRemember You By” had become the number one bestselling book in Theater Acting & Auditioning in the Amazon.com.au Kindle Store today.
In truth, I’ve been astonished, overjoyed and rather humbled by the tremendous reception the book has enjoyed since its release. It’s been selling extremely well in the US and has also proven to be a popular seller in the UK, Canada, Australia, and Continental Europe.
So a great big, heartfelt thank you to everyone who’s purchased a copy so far, and more than that, I hope it helps land you all of the roles you’re chasing after – for me to know that my words have helped you achieve your goals would be the ultimate reward.
And to my friends Down Under, all I can say is…good on you, mates!

It seemed to be a good idea to put together a collection comprised solely of comedies, as these are often the favored genre in ten-minute play festivals and so would provide a great resource for any theatre practitioners looking for just that.
The volume contains 15 short comedic …

A New Year, A New Book

Firstly, I’d like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! 2017 was a very important year for me, as it saw the publication of my monologue book “Monologues They’ll Remember You By,” which I’m happy to report has so far been a great success, finding its way into the hands of actors across the US, the UK, Canada, Australia and Continental Europe.
It also saw the publication of my anthology of comedic short plays, “Ten-Minute Plays: The Comedy Collection,” which is also proving to be very popular, hitting the #1 spot for hot new releases on Amazon upon its release.
And 2018 promises to be another big year, as I’m currently working on a brand new book which I hope to finish in the coming months. This one’s a little different for me, as it will not be a book of my playwriting work but a book about playwriting itself. It’s still in its formative stage, but essentially I will be sharing insights and experience from my journey as a playwright, offering advice, tips, and all manner of useful…
