Awards & Recognition



"The things I enjoy reading or viewing tend to fall into 6 categories: physical comedy, quirky comedy, caper, mystery, suspense and action-adventure, but I'm open to all genres. I've listed some of my favorites - old and new, in no particular order - in case you might discover one you're not familiar with and enjoy."
