My Voice Experience

Recently, I did a British VO for Eurorail, promoting the "Chunnel" train, and appeared on camera and sang for a Nippon Ham commercial.

In the past, I recorded several roles in plays for the blind and handicapped for the Library of Congress.

I did a lot of reading to children for BookPals, a program of the SAG Foundation, for which I was the East Coast coordinating director, working for the BookPals cofounder Mary Stuart.

My Training

I have a B. A. and an M. A. in theatre and English literature from Penn State, and took extensive graduate studies in theatre and acting at University of Denver, at HB Studio, at Weist-Barron, at Margo McKee's Soundstage, and also studied comedy improv at Chicago City Limits.

I'm a professional novelist and editor with 15 published novels, six nonfiction books, one short story collection, and I have edited over 30 anthologies. I was an Adjunct Professor at NYU, teaching genre writing, and taught magic and mindreading at The New School. Currently I edit "Sherlock Holmes Mystery Magazine." I also am cofounder and Artistic Director of a 30-plus-years-old nonprofit theatre, The Open Book, and have produced more than sixty showcases and two off-Broadway shows.

My Studio Equipment

I am in the process of equipping my studio, and expect it to be functional by the beginning of 2010.
