Director / Author / Filmmaker

 
  


 
Welcome to my website!

 

I hope you will find this overview of my career as director, author and filmmaker interesting and informative; a peek into my world of television directing and now neck deep into writing fiction.

Listed are my first four novels. The latest is; The Sweet Talkers. The previous three are, Crooked Road Straight, Our Father’s Sons and Jacks and the Jills.  All four are available at Amazon, Kindle, Barnes & Noble and, of course, signed copies directly off the Website, Huzzah, Huzzah…

A look-see of the story content of the four novels is presented on the ‘novel’ link, just a quick click away. Best be warned, though, I write gritty, funny and sexy stories, purely in the adult vein. If that isn’t what you’re after please skip over to other links for some fun photos and a video clip instead.

On the television side of my career, I’ve had the distinct pleasure of directing major actors; the talented Robin Williams comes to mind, so does Jonathan Winters, Darren McGavin, Bob Saget and John Stamos to name but a handful, and let’s not forget the wonderful cast on the Bell series (eight seasons). Working with gifted crews and tons of funny writers over the past thirty years has also been a blessing. I should have learned something about humor, what?

The writing process of developing novels, however, opened up yet another door for me in this crazy world of creativity. I love it and even though I still direct when opportunities present themselves, I now eagerly look forward to the rush from sitting down at this magical machine and slugging through the vast challenges that bring my stories to life.

I truly hope you enjoy my work as much as I have enjoyed putting it together and I welcome your lucid comments. A full resume and video bio are also two simple clicks away on separate links.

Best,

Don
