Salve Richina (2) - Copy_edited.jpg
Welcome

Nothing fancy here. Just a repository for my material, with the occasional new bit or quip over to the right (on a desktop). It's mostly humor and fiction --- print, web, radio, standup, and some unsold stuff.

There's corporate communications aplenty, too, for prospective employers who'd like to see some samples. Just ask.

My humor credits include The New York Times; public radio’s “Morning Edition,” “Marketplace” and “Living on Earth” programs; Slackjaw; The Motley Fool; Points in Case; The Haven; PsychCentral; Speechwriters Newsletter; and sundry other outlets.

 

There's a novel here as well, called Thank God for That, an antic yarn in which the vampires of Washington, D.C., vie with the vultures of Madison Avenue for the title of “Most Likely to Wreck the Republic in the Regular Course of Business.” It’s a close race.

 

The manuscript retains its chaste virtue by virture of never having been published or optioned. So if you are or know someone who knows an agent, publisher, filmmaker or macher, here's an oppotunity to get in on the ground floor.

I'm also proud of the course I developed for a freshman writing class I taught at George Washington University prepandemic. It traces the history of American political demagogues, from Cleon of Athens to Trump of Queens.

Finally, should you find yourself in want of words — speech, presentation, remarks, op-ed, essay, newsletter article, eulogy, toast, letter of interest, note of apology, recriminating text, pleading email, bris barb, quips for any occasion, or punched-up prose of any kind, let’s talk.
