I've been spending my time with various writing projects. In June, I'll produce the fourth edition of "A Guidebook to Breaking Bad Filming Locations," featuring insights on the use of Albuquerque architecture in "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul." I'm also hoping to finish a history of Davis Musical Theatre Company (DMTC), in Davis, California, and maybe try my hand at writing a science fiction story.
But first, two personal accounts: "A New Mexico Childhood: The View from Albuquerque’s Edge in the Sixties and Early Seventies," and
"Dog-Walking Stories: Nighttime Journeys into the Sacramento Demimonde with Sparky and Bella."
The New Mexico Childhood book is about growing up in New Mexico. My childhood seems curiously strange, given the perspective of time. Life in semi-rural New Mexico is oddly claustrophobic. Just like the adults, we kids were little too careless about fire and knives. We loved our dirt-clod wars. And building model cities too.
The Dog-Walking stories are about two dogs, Sparky and Bella, and their walks, and the odd people we met and the puzzling things we saw.
