I suddenly realized I had not included my memoir, Immaculate Misconceptions: Tales from Catholic School, on my Prose page. Granted, it did start as a performance piece, but this really serves as a major prose work of mine. So—error corrected, and it’s not available for your perusal. The book is available on Smashwords as an eBook, but more importantly on Amazon.com as both a Kindle eBook and a paperback. (This is where I’d like to generate sales, so please take a look there!)
In 2006 I did a stage performance of the monologue, joined by my longtime collaborator, Jeremy dePrisco. Jeremy composed some songs for various shows, but more importantly, he served as composer for the musicals Iphigenia, Peer Gynt (for which I used some of his songs from his CD Mandala), and Dog Assassin. The latter collaboration served as the basis for a series of 10 videos on my youtube channel, with the title, “The Creation of a Musical.” He joined me again in Second Life in 2008 for a virtual presentation.
I do have some videos of the 2006 performance on my youtube channel as well. Unfortunately it’s a one-camera fixed location setup without the best sound, but they may give you an idea (links below).
I would love to set up a tour (post-pandemic) or even a virtual tour and perform this again.

Oh, and one more thing: While it’s good that you can’t copyright titles, it can lead to some confusion, since I am constantly getting Google Alerts about things that have nothing to do with my work… Who is “Motionless in White”??
