SIT COMS

I'm a ten year veteran of tv comedy writing - most noteably "Designing Women".  My screenplays and stageplays - to quote the LA Times - "combine humor with heartache."   I hear the music of a character's "voice."  I love the art and craft of telling a larger truth through humor and a personal prism.   Sit com writing is a group effort.  I longed for more personal story telling and became a playwright in my spare time.   See Theater.

The show I met Ed Asner on.  And Robin Ryker.   And Haley Joel Osmont - who had impeccable comic timing as a five year old!!  His scenes with Ed were hilarous - and impressive!!
