What an exciting moment.  I realized that I will have my script performed on Sunday, March 25, 2018.  While I consider myself a novelist, I took a shot at writing a drama for a stage production.  It may not be the next great musical, but it is a great feeling to share my vision with others.  The actors are amazing, and I have been lucky enough to work with them during the process.  We have tweaked, and fine-tuned it as the months have passed and I feel like it will be a fantastic experience.  I have learned a great deal about the process.

Life Begins After Coffee will be performed at 6:00pm on March 25, 2018, at Desert Christian Fellowship – 1445 W Northern Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85021


A youth pastor and several of the young people from the youth group tell the story of the Resurrection over coffee with girl searching for something more. Sharing the truth of the love of Christ and a peek into the last hours of His sacrifice for all mankind.

The story behind the story.:

I shared on Monday about the loss of a dear friend.  He was the youth minister at our church.  This play was written in honor of him.  Weaving things in that reminded me of him.  It was healing. His daughter was involved in the process of writing the script and helping put the personal touches of her dad in the play.  Writing is healing and not just for the author. This play has allowed many to remember fondly a man we all loved.

In loving memory of:
