Generally, I do not post two blogs in the same day. But when I come across something useful for me as a filmmaker, I like to share it, in hopes that it will be a blessing to those who read this. While still waiting for the budget to get back to me, I am thinking, … More READY TO BE SEEN!
Today is one of those, “I don’t feel like it days.” I just want to have some whine and/or wine with my pity party. What do you do when you have worked so hard for so long and delays have been rampant? Well, we can either quit or move forward. But if we quit, all … More TO SMILE MORE!
I read an email from our Fiscal Sponsor – Carole Dean of From the Heart Productions (www.fromtheheartproductions.com) about how a film that took 16 years in the making was finally headed for their first premiere. It was an exciting picture in her email, and one that inspired me. Our project is in the 13th year … More GET IT DONE!

My level of success is contingent upon my level of discipline and determination. Success can always be reached. But it won’t be reached, if I am not disciplined and determined to get there. If I don’t get to the level of success that I want, it is my fault and only my fault. Distractions and … More SUCCESS WILL BE THE REWARD!
The last few months have been spent working on editing the book series and their covers. Thankfully, I had a great proof-reader who in fact loved the story. Her review is below the new book cover! If you would like to order it, simply click on the cover and it will take you right to … More THE HAND OF GOD!
We are now in our 13th year of Summer Ray. If you had asked me back in February of 2009 when I first started this series, if I knew that so many years later I would still be working on the feature film, honestly, I would have said, “Yeah right! It shouldn’t take THAT long.” … More REACH THE OPTIMAL!
The one thing I always have to remember about Summer Ray, is that it is a story and I am the story teller. After reading the books again just to make sure they are polished, I noticed that I was still as captivated by the story today as I was when I first wrote it. … More TO SMILE MORE!
I think of the making of Summer Ray like this patch quilt. There are so many different pieces that alone, really aren’t good for anything. But put together – it makes a beautiful warm quilt. We may have a lot of different parts that are not yet added, and why the pilot isn’t finished yet. … More WITH HIS OWN HANDS!
