This was my first one-man show titled after my book by the same name. The book was written in the early 1980’s as the musings of a young man struggling with learning how to manage a young career burdened with heavy expectations, talent and self-doubt. No doubt this work would have been a blog had they existed in 1982. I never liked having to run the gauntlet of record companies, so I was determined to write a book and publish it without asking any authorities’ permission. “Maybe I’m It, Maybe I’m Not” is that effort. Fifteen years later, I adapted the work into a solo musical performance at Zachary Scott Theatre Center in Austin, Texas and performed it in the Spring of 1997.

  2. Still one of my favorite reads. When will we have another?

  3. Thank you, Colleen. “Aristotle’s Prayer” is the second offering. I start workshoping this presentation this fall. (2005) Still personal in nature like Maybe I’m It but hits a little harder. Actually, it hits alot harder. See the “Aristotle’s Prayer” category for details on my experience with writing this show.

  4. I loved reading your book and would dearly love to have seen the solo music performance. Will you be performing it again anywhere or are you?

    Again thanks so much for your wonderful talents.
