Policy and Procedures Manuals
Let’s have some fun and write some scripts!
Create Scripts to…
- be a guideline for what you say when making a video for YouTube or other purposes.
- avoid employee errors and customer misunderstandings when conversations are “free-lance” and impromptu. Scripts enable employees to learn to say the correct things to customers (on the phone, online, or in-person), so that accurate information and an excellent service-oriented attitude are conveyed to your clients.
- become a class, a seminar, and a training course you or your staff must teach.
- enact to educate people on a topic, like those my performing troupe of homeless people did to teach about AIDS, addiction, homelessness, and more. See the link to that page for details and purchases.
- tell the stories of Wounded Warriors, either as funds or consciousness-raising tools
- be sales tools
- function as Help Desk tools
- help your children know how to respond in difficult social situations
- aid anyone in creating correctly-worded affirmations
- assist with using the Emotional Freedom (EFT) Technique
- create a guided meditation.
Here’s a short video about my services.
“Break the Chain,” A Play About Domestic Violence
Once upon a time, I wrote, produced, directed, and acted in a one-act play which is about the common cycle of behaviors among people experiencing domestic violence and how those behaviors are passed down through the generations. It is easy to stage, has a small cast, and is available for purchase. Click Here to learn more.
We Can Write A Book (Or, I Can Ghostwrite Yours)
I can review, critique, edit, write, co-author, or help you develop your book.
During your free, initial, no-pressure consultation, we’ll probably meet via Zoom or a similar media, rather than in-person, as I would have preferred.
Here is one of my publications and the link for book reviews.
It is a playbook (the script of a play, used by the actors as an acting text, including licensing agreements plus line numbers for use by actors and directors who are staging the production). It is available here.
The paperback book for the reading public is available here at $10 + $3 shipping.
Discounted rates are available for book clubs, teachers who use this book as reading assignments, etc. 25 copies at $9 ea | 50 copies at $8 ea. | 100 copies at $7 ea. plus shipping.
Now, it’s also available on Amazon as a paperback or Kindle book.

About Homelessness, Addiction, and AIDS
I am pictured here with some of the Voices From the Streets and Variety Pack players. These people became my friends in Washington, D.C. I met them while volunteering at a shelter for people experiencing homelessness, addiction, AIDS, and other traumas. Most of them lived in the largest shelter in the country, and all helped us raise awareness about the difficult issues they faced. Also pictured is the late Suzy Goldman, who first convinced me to become the Producer/Director for Voices From the Streets. That led to all things great and glorious!
“Variety Pack” was the name of the non-profit organization I created to serve the interests of people who were homeless. It also was the name of my performing troupe, comprised of people I met at the Community for Creative Non-Violence (CCNV) shelter in Washington, D.C.
The scripts are authentic stories of people who became homeless, drug-addicted, and/or were diagnosed as HIV+. These monologues are told from the personal perspectives of homeless people, volunteers at the shelter, and an outside observer. If you’d like a sample, that is a composite of multiple characters, click here.
We performed the scripts as monologues because one never knew who actually would show up for a performance, given addiction, health issues, and the many physical dangers of living in a shelter environment. We chose to do them as dramatic readings, rather than as memorized pieces, for the same reason. There were occasions when we engaged our homeless musicians or gospel choir friends to perform with us between the soliloquies.
What Happened to The People?
Many of the homeless people died of AIDs, diabetes, and other afflictions. However, all the survivors who were members of my performing troupe went on to become “clean and sober.” They went back to or created new families, work, and school pursuits. They were able to resume normal lives and remain drug and alcohol-free all these years later. I am so proud of them!
Who Cared Enough to Book Us?
We played for members of Congress, the National Archives, and Virginia Governor Wilder’s Conference on Housing and Homelessness. (The Governor was kind enough to give me a Governor’s Gold Medal Award for voluntarism, and we received several other awards, including The One and Only Channel Nine (WUSA-TV) Award for community service.
More commonly, we performed for religious, educational, business, and civic organizations throughout the Washington D.C. Metro Area and as far away as Kansas City. Performances of Three Hots and a Cot also were aired on Northern Virginia cable television for many months.

Confetti – An Anthology of the Written Word
The Write by the Rails Anthology ~ A Social Media Project
Some of my very short writings were selected for use as a contributing author to an anthology, compiled by Write by the Rails (WbtR), the Prince William Chapter of The Virginia Writer’s Club. Why were the writings short?
WbtR conducted a three-month campaign designed to bring creativity to social media. We created Twitter-friendly writings, meaning the submissions had to be within the confines of the number of characters allowed for Tweets, including hashtags.
Someone had the idea of creating writers’ challenges that were to write a concept that could be encompassed in #NineWords. That prompted me to start my own #NineWordChallenge! The initiative elicited hundreds of short poems, lines of fiction, anecdotes, and words of wisdom, many of which can be found on Facebook and Twitter under the campaign hashtags #WbtR #BackOnTrackNow.
From those submissions, a panel of judges chose the works of 22 authors for inclusion in this unique book. For more information about the anthology, go to #BackOnTrackNow: A Write by the Rails Anthology and Social Media Initiative.
