Unless you’ve been living in a media-free zone, stories of celebrities spinning out of control have become part of our daily conversation—a phenomenon that may lead to a serious case of compassion fatigue. But imagine a scenario in which a star’s glamorous life is derailed not by a descent into drug (more…)

Here’s the thing I like about Arthur Wooten’s work (Leftovers, Birthday Pie, Wise Bear William): You forget you are holding a book. Sounds odd, I know, as I am an avid reader, a writer and lover of turning actual paper pages. However… when you are so absorbed in the story, you forget (more…)

It's Time Congress Stands Up to Insurance Companies - by Gregory G. Allen, The Huffington Post

Tags: Words or phrases to catagorize this post for the tags section

The ineffectiveness of the US Congress has been very apparent the past several years. They seem to be more worried about taking down incumbent presidents, thrashing high-ranking cabinet members on their way out, and doing away with Obama-care at any cost. But I've yet to see what it is they offer up to the (more…)

Having absolutely loved Arthur Wooten’s last novel Leftovers (it was one of my top ten books of 2012) I was very excited to see that Arthur had a new novel out. Arthur is a brilliantly varied author and a master at reinventing genres; Leftovers is an excellent ‘romantic dramedy’ and Dizzy is a ‘fictional (more…)

This is my third round of reading a book by Arthur Wooten. Leftovers and Birthday Pie both had just the right mix of humor and seriousness. His latest book, Dizzy, still has those elements, but it is a fictional take on a subject very close to his own heart. Before reading Dizzy I had (more…)

Fingers crossed, we should all still be around after the Mayan Calendar fades to black on Dec. 21. Still, it wouldn't hurt to have a few good books nearby -- you know, just in case. So, whether you're nesting this week, preparing for the worst or happily venturing forth to create a stellar 2013 in your (more…)

Theater Creates Memories

The last musical I ever did before I moved away from Texas 25 years ago was Annie. I played Bert Healy and had a great time doing it before heading to NYC to test my fate with other roles. And now, here it is back on Broadway again this year. People have (more…)
