I am a writer, which means I am a storyteller. I write books, screenplays, stage plays and essays. I love folktales, films and any tale that has been already told a thousand times. Though I'll listen to it the 1001st time if it's good! I often find myself re-reading great books. The latest are the five Melrose novels of Edward St.Aubyn and Anna Karenina.
I'm looking for a woman with imagination, a woman with intelligence, a woman with a fearless heart, a woman who loves the arts, a woman who loves to work for peace, a lover of life. If you're deep into football, NSCAR, home decorating and casinos, read no further..
Professionally, I write about culture, social issues, art, history and tales of interesting people from any background. My books have been about the roots of music, culture and mythology. I adore all kinds of music, from reggae and blues to pop and funk and rock. As Duke Ellington said, "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing." Favorite bands include: the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Nick Drake, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Mumford and Sons, Paul Simon, BigStar, Cassandra Wilson, Leonard Cohen, Miles Davis, Lucinda Williams,Steve Earle, The Beatles, and many other bands and artists. Favorite films: The Third Man, Citizen Kane, Jean de Florette/Manon of the Spring, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Chinatown, The Apu Trilogy, Star Wars, The Fugitive, Lost in Translation, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Everything is Illuminated. So many that these just floated off the top of my head.
One last thing: I am sensual, original, confident, soulful, fun, self aware, adventurous, curious, well traveled, imaginative.
