Kids inspire me and so does musical theater. Using a measure of both, I write musicals that tell stories of unlikely, unsung heroes; a girl who fights her computer from a wheelchair, a boy who creates a green monster that can only sing. I aim to write stories that are young adult friendly; that means honest, fast moving, relevant and believable--yet challenging, funny, and full of magic. I don't write happy endings, just satisfying ones. I want to see young people stretch themselves and feel successful when they perform my work. My ultimate goal is to give young people the opportunity to experience the thrill and the pride of being a part of something much bigger than themselves.

So click around, listen to the music, see the video trailers, order a perusal copy by email.  Maybe you'll perform one of my musicals at your school or theater this year!
