Shameless self-promotion

I can't help myself. My one-act comedy, The __urloined Letter, has just been listed on the Pioneer Drama Service web site. Which means that I am now, at long last, a published playwright.

The feeling is not unlike the one I felt a year ago when I sent my eldest child off to college. You're glad they're on their own. You just hope they remember to keep in touch.

If you enjoyed those film noir parodies on Who's Line Is It Anyway?, in which the great Ryan Stiles addressed the audience in sly asides as the hard-boiled detective, you'll love this play. The dialogue is fast-paced, the characters outrageous and the gags come at you thick as bullets from a .357 Magnum.

You can check out the play here.
