Almost finished with the rough draft of the Hyland senior play. I'll be sending the first draft to my good friend Anna Wilcox on Tuesday for feedback. Then after a brief polish, we'll do the read-through on Thursday. The working title is DELINQUENTS and the tentative performance date is October 27.
I am a little past half-way through a fairly readable rough draft of MOBIUS GIRL. Progress on the novel has been briefly postponed because of the senior play script, but the plan is to get going strong again this coming week.
The non-fiction book REAL LIFE has had a slow start. A basic outline is finished and I've tinkered with the beginning. The introduction is made up of at least two parts: "This-Topia" and "Don't Ask a Fish."

I’m working on the third draft of a novel for my friend Grace Garrison. She’s 11 years old and loves to read. Last summer I asked her what kind of story she’d like and she asked for a story about superpowers. Grace gave me a bracelet she made so one of the key factors in the novel is a bracelet.
The story is about a young girl named Ambry Klavins, whose mother works at a retirement center called Marigold Hills. While visiting the center, Ambry finds a bracelet belonging to an old woman. When Ambry puts the bracelet on, she is startled to discover she can’t take it off.
My goal is to have a decent draft finished before the summer is over.
