Some authors abhor doing public readings, but I’ll freely admit that I’m a ham — always have been, always will be. I did local theatre as a kid, was a theatre minor in college, and I’m a regular performer at the Northeastern Writers’ Convention, a.k.a. Camp Necon (in fact, I even created a stand up routine that has become an annual tradition at the con and participate in the Roast every year).
So, in short, I like being on stage. Which means I LOVE reading my own work to an audience, because I don’t just read them, I perform them. It gives me the opportunity to share my stories as I heard them in my own head as I wrote. As such, I hope you enjoy the following videos as much as I enjoyed their creation!
