This month I’m working and playing especially hard.
– talking literature – what it’s for, how it changes us – with the bright and engaging students at Cranbrook Kingswood . . .
– joining in the amazing yearly #TheLiteraryOthers LGBT reading event at Roof Beam Reader, with a post that looks at how we act when we act out our truest selves . . .
– and heading to St. Paul MN to be guest of honor and present a solo performance piece, “The Art of Darkness,” at Arcana 46.
And every day I’m at my desk, working hard and having wild fun with CHRISTOPHER WILD. Whee, what a month!
Worth a thousand words and then some: the cover for CHRISTOPHER WILD.
Give me whatsoever I shall ask.
Going ever deeper into CHRISTOPHER WILD – the novel is two-thirds complete, now – I’m also writing a companion piece: harsh light and darkness, music and movement, hell and heaven and everywhere in between, a one-night-only performance of Marlowe’s words and mine. January 2017, time for NIGHT SCHOOL.
The patrons have a beautiful, sprawling garden, with flowers and ponds and two blue-metal follies.
To bring Bosch to that garden, we needed music.
We needed masks, and eggs, and fruit.
And a fish.
And we already had nerve.
