At present he is working on a musical, "The Ghost on St. Martin's Street" with the award-winning English

Join your friends and neighbors for an evening of fine food and a great film. Participants must bring a main dish or appetizer that serves at least six and your choice of beverage.
Please note that your food commitment must be confirmed before the feast to insure that there is plenty of delicious food for all.
This beautifully crafted film follows the earlier "Before Sunrise" (1995) and "Before Sunset" (2004) and like the second film in the series, 9 years have passed. After a brief marriage and one child, Jesse (Ethan Hawke) has married Celine (Julie Delpy), the original lovers who met briefly nearly 2 decades earlier.
They have twin girls about 6 and are vacationing in Greece as houseguests of a well-known writer and viewers follow the couple as they maneuver through numerous landmines including career paths, domesticity, child rearing, and finances as most couples do.

I have always been a fanatic reader, now particularly
of “mysteries.” And as a result of different friends
knowing of my voracious reading habit, many had the good judgment
to ask me for a recommendation of “a few books to read."
That resulted in the first “Bookletter” 13
years ago. And now through the magic of email--and the ease of “forwarding”--it
is read by about 300 people in 16 countries resulting in many new
friends around the world.
