Peabody Award-winning radio host Dmae Roberts interviewed me last week for her "Stage and Studio" program on KBOO. We talked about Shakespeare, growing up in the theatre, and how I got started writing The Lunatic, the Lover, and the Poet. I had a wonderful time meeting her, and really enjoyed our talk. If you missed the show, don't despair! You can download and listen to it at the website here.

There's also a new review to report. Margaret Donsbach at says "The Lunatic, the Lover, and the Poet is a bawdy, madcap riff..." She continues:

Not just Hamlet but the other plays of Shakespeare and especially the sonnets are whipped like meringue into this soufflé of a novel: As-You-Like-It-like disguises and misidentifications, Falstaffian tavern-keepers, larks (not nightingales) driving lovers apart at daybreak, and just a hint of tragedy.[...] Even Shakespeare might have approved. The Lunatic, the Lover, and the Poet is an homage to him, although (or perhaps because) the playwright himself is dissolved into a mist of his characters.

And, as promised, here are some more pictures from the show at Boxcar Theatre in San Francisco with the GuyWriters. Thanks to photographer Michael Grove for sending these! And thanks again to my brilliantly talented "Ruff Trade Boys" for bringing my novel to life! They are:

Aaron Tworek as Hamlet, Brian Martin as Horatio, Michael Vega as Guildenstern, Brian Martin as Rosencrantz. I played the part of Lady Adriane. And of course, thanks to our director and narrator, Donald Currie. Now onto the tango pictures!
