This picture was taken at a NaNoWrMo gathering, where I wrote my story, Drinker. I am working on turning Drinker into a short screenplay to see how it reads.
I am a student at Full Sail University, where I am pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing. There, I am learning to write scripts, which is a complete change of style for me. So much more the fun.
I am one of the founders and supporters of the Jesus Cares Restoration School, located in Nabwendo, Uganda. The director, John Byamugisha Miruho, is a friend of mine, and a writer, as well. To help children get back into school, his ngo and our nonprofit, JCRF, started construction on an orphanage for school-aged students in December 2021. We hope to take in orphans by May 2022.
Uganda went through a 44-week school lockdown because of COVID, the longest in the world. Since the JCR school resumed in early January, we are back up to about 425+ students.
