I’m still in California, living in-between pricey chunks of real estate, amidst brilliant patches of city lights which twinkle all night, boasting of the endless possibilities found only in Hollywood.
Some actors concern themselves with the size of the roles they audition for. Not me. Actors are storytellers. There have been storytellers since people lived in caves. Do you think a caveman worried about his number of lines? In the last month, I went up for three films; the lead in “Mary Loss of Soul”, a supporting player in “Swelter”, and a walk-on part in “Bad Ass 2”.
When I explain that I also write for a living, I sometimes am regarded like a juggler tossing six normal-sized objects and an elephant. I certainly might get overwhelmed, if it weren’t for the adulation I occasionally receive, like this glowing review of “The Martian Shuffle.”
So despite a full teaching schedule, I’ve answered the bell and am writing the third installment in my horror/suspense series, the follow-up to “Pandora 2012: Southern Belles”. Why build a series around an enchanted shopping mall? Well, I don’t want to just write about what I know, but also about things I’m intrigued with, such as the mystery unfolding in this torrid little drama.
If there’s a defining moment amongst the disorganization and lack of discipline, it’s the publication of my new speech manual, “Accent Reduction: The Standard American Accent.” Ready to feel empowered? After working your way through this program, which includes a series of free YouTube videos, you’ll wonder why you wasted so much time trying to figure it out on your own.
