I have written a book that will be available on many book sites. Other than a brief chapter on extra work it isn't about acting, but I'm hoping all my friends and followers will at least consider it for yourself or as a gift. To get a few notices about when it's available, like the Facebook page for Mastering Senior Life.

The book is now available at several book stores including The Book Table in Oak Park IL. I had wonderful coverage in the Wednesday Journal of Oak Park and River Forest.

Here is a video where I talk about some of the highlights of the book:

Stairs was one of 130 films out of 8,170 submitted to the Cannes Indie Shorts Awards, where it was warmly received.   I had a great time attending.

Next up:  A supporting part in the short "Room 108: The Clearing", directed by Freddy Moyano, to be shot in Wisconsin.
