If fairy tales came to life, there’s only one place that they could find a home… Las Vegas!

Production Comments[]

I suppose my writing bug began when I couldn't get into the advanced acting class in high school, so I took Playwrighting/Directing instead. I ended up being the most prolific student in the class, producing about four plays to everyone else's one. I loved writing!

Fast forward a few years where I meet Rene Jones in a creative writing class in college. She found out I write romance and voila! Instant friends. ^_^

During the course of this class, she wrote two short stories which ended up being the premise for a book series, which we are still working on. With us both having a preoccupation with fairy tales since we were little, we decided to take classic tales, dress them up for modern day, and weave them together for an adult crowd. It was (and is) some of the most steamy stuff I've ever written! (Whew!)

Fast forward a little more where I end up living with the lovely and talented Julie Goldstein, whom I of course admire for her versatile voice talent. She tells me that the radio group she's involved in, Pendant Audio (.com!), is having a casting call. Long story, longer... I was cast and my future with Pendant began.

For a couple of years, I had been limited by a leg injury which prevented me from persuing acting much further and I believed it to be a lost art to me. Getting involved with Pendant fed my creativity and brought back something very precious in my life. For that, I will always be grateful to Julie, Seth, and Tilly. I adore all things Pendant, in my mind, they truly set the standard for radio drama as a whole.

So nearly a year passes... Pendant is introducing new shows to the fold. I start to get the writing bug again. Tilly loved the idea of adapting our "fairy tales" for audio and the possibilities for such a show seemed just about endless to me.

It's definitely different from the other Pendant shows as far as subject matter, having more of a fantasy edge than sci-fi, focusing more on the relationships (and of course, the sex) with the fantasy adding in a sense of suspense. And *definitely* risque in language and just about everything else... A sweet and very decadent treat to indulge in, if I do say so myself!

And so, here I am! The co-creator, co-writer, and director of mine and Rene's "baby." With all the naughty things we have in store, this is looking to be one exciting ride... Won't you come along? ^_^
