LATEST NEWS  The Writers Guild of America named me a 2018 television diversity access project honoree for THE SECRET WORLD OF DANNY LÓPEZ DE LA PEÑAwhich was also nominated as best drama pilot script for the 2018 C21 International Drama Summit in London. ǁ ELEPHANT & CASTLE named Best Original Screenplay (London Independent Film Awards) and a Special Commendation (British Independent Film Awards). ǁ The MR. CONFIDENTIAL team is further developing the stage musical with music by David Snyder and my book and lyrics. ǁ Also working on a new musical adaptation that is a secret for now.

MINI BIO -- Born to a Mexican mother and a Jewish father. But lots of secrets. My mom had fake papers. I was told her name was Sally and her maiden name was Mayfield. Her real name was Aracélia De La Gárza. My dad came from a wealthy Texas family but embraced what he felt were worthy liberal causes—like brokering arms for the Palestinians when we lived in Egypt—as you do. He hustled the family all over the world, occasionally on the lam, sometimes just for fun, in Cairo, Honolulu, Austin, Phoenix, Albuquerque, New York, Los Angeles, and Ft. Collins, Colorado. ǁ I've written and produced in multiple tv formats and genres, indie film, both musical and non-musical theater, and am the author of three books. ǁ Husband Ronald Shore and I co-founded Babyhead Productions in 1997 and have been together since 1994—married in a non-legally binding ceremony performed by a rabbi in 1996; legally married in Canada in 2003; and then, for good measure, legally married again in the United States in 2013. We are exploring the possibility of marrying six more times on the six other continents. ǁ I'm a CASA volunteer (Court Appointed Special Advocate) to a fantastic foster kid, spent ten years heading a mentoring program for LAUSD high school writers, have facilitated rap groups for LGBTQ kids, and Ronald and I are being held hostage by three incorrigible dachshunds. Send help.
