Best Idea Ever!

This was one of my better ideas and it grew into book sales. 

I met with a group of teachers a few years back and they were bemoaning the fact that their arts budget was non-existent. Everything they did in the classroom, with regard to visual arts or theatre arts, was ‘out of pocket’ for them.  So I went away thinking, ‘I should create 10 minute plays for the classroom, no costumes, no sets, no props, and inexpensive for the teachers. And make most of the plays preteen and teen specific.  Stories about real issues challenging our teens. 
Maybe the plays would open a dialogue between a troubled teen and an adult who could help them.

Twenty-eight short plays later……(who knew?)   These plays are used and produced in classrooms around the USA, in England,  Europe and Argentina.

This may sound like a sales pitch but it isn’t.  It’s advice and encouragement to other writers out there to keep trying different ways to market your talent. You just never know what will take off.  My belief is to throw as much as you can at the wall and see what sticks. Of course my little ego-writer self was certain that my novel, Song of the Yukon, would be a best seller.  Turns out that “The Creative Writer’s Journal” is my top seller.

If used in the classroom with no formal audience, these plays are royalty FREE to teachers.

I was also certain that there were a few writers wondering how to begin, how to write a play so I developed these Journals.
