I just finished updating and reformatting a one act play called Holding Patterns into a short screenplay. Some old comrades from SIU are moving to Los Angeles and looking for a short to shoot as a demo, so here’s hoping that they like it. It’s sort of my little comment on deeply depressed, homicidal people get the way they are, and how society doesn’t help much. Actually, it’s about a suicidal man, a homicidal man, and a valium-addicted space cadet at the mercy of an egomaniacal phone operator. With any luck, it will be shooting in June or July. As for other things, the book (Hit and Run) is awaiting word from a couple of agents, and I’m well into my new book which I’ll tell you about when I’m done. Which will be soon. I hope.
