|Well Read Books Hawthorne, NJ|
I've been doing several interviews lately and really thinking about what I'm drawn towards in reading and writing. It truly goes back to even my days of directing and producing. I like to give the unexpected and not the tried and true. A protagonist must do X....a story must always finish with Y.
I can't write that way.
Nor have I ever directed or produced that way for the stage. I directed the French-themed musical La Cage Aux Folles and set it in The French Quarters of New Orleans, I Do! I Do! covers 50 years of marriage and I moved it to start in the 40s instead of the late 1800s and my vision of directing Kiss of the Spider Woman was more of a prison like guantanamo bay.
I suppose my vision of religion and sexuality will really show themselves in Well With My Soul. Some will be angry. Some will be moved. Some will toss the book aside. But that's what art is all about. Making people think.
I hope you enjoy the journey as you read my book.
I wanted to end this blog with a few links to some of those interviews I've been doing. So people can get inside of my head just a little more as those asking the questions were so skillful at doing.
