There Is No Knighthood!

United and empower one another to create a greater force!

We are responsible for our own destiny. No man can provide that. A Knight (were there any today) can provide safety but we must forge our own unique place in this world. Confront what it is that you fear - it may be your future destiny. Go after what you want. Decide what it is and and pursue it. Be something else - be something no one has ever seen.

Be something a knight would fall to his knees and revere. Unite and empower one another to create a greater force!

Socrates: Knowing Thyself Is The Height of Wisdom.

Alexandra begins her journey to Black Lake as a world-weary soul. Down trodden by a society that squelches her struggle to seek"truth", she finds herself a lonely outcast. Her bargain at the shrine: Truth for Beauty seems an impossible task. The more she strives to find herself  within the restrictive confines of  a modern, consumer driven  society, the more empty and hollow she feels

Led by the mystics and gypsies of the underground and mentored by the central figures of Black Lake, she begins to reclaim pieces of herself buried so deeply she had no idea they existed. We are all creatures led and protected by society. It is our responsibility as individuals to dig inside, to strive to know ourselves deeply, and to reach the height of wisdom that can never be learned from teachers or books. Our own unique truths must then be shared with the world, if we are to evolve.

Truth or Life - You choose!

New Novel 'The Chamber of Curiosities' Begins on Twitter

I have given myself a challenge. I plan to begin my new novel, "The Chamber of Curiosities"  a few sentences at a time on Twitter.  It is the tale of a charismatic circus freak and a lonely trapeze artist set in a carnival on a bastion overlooking the seaport of a mysterious land. I plan to begin here, and see where it takes me.

UPDATE:  This post was written on April 7, 2010. ''The Chamber of Curiosities' began on Twitter. Later that year it was featured in an auction for the "First Amendment Project" in which a bidder won the right to have a character named after them.  The novel is now (August 2012)  in the final editing process and is scheduled to be published late this year.

Tosh Yanez - Rising Superstar and Actor in House on Black Lake Trailer

THE HOUSE ON BLACK LAKE HAS BEEN ADAPTED TO SCREENPLY. GO TO HOME PAGE TO VIEW TOSH YANEZ IN PROVOCATIVE CINEMATIC TRAILER

Tosh Yanez is already an internationally recognized model and commerical star.  However, his acting talents have yet to be truly discovered. It was a pleasure to work with him on the trailer for The House on Black Lake He is a true professional - the camera loves him, as does everyone he meets. Easy going and low key in person, he projects an intensity that is startling in front of the camera. I am convinced he has a promising future in film and television. A beautiful man both inside and out, sensuous, and sexy but also tender and kind.  He is the next break-out superstar.

Wade Gotwals - Charismatic Actor in House on Black Lake Trailer

It was a difficult task to find the the right actor to play the role of Ramey Sandeley for film trailer. When Alexandra first takes Ramey's eyes her previous life is shattered. Thirteen years later she describes him as even more powerfully handsome and charismatic.  In her words - "Someone once told me that God had give Ramey Sandeley too much, and so he had a price to pay. I prayed the prophecy to be true, or at least time would have tarnished his dealy allure. But that is not the case. I notice no evidence of decline in his physical perfection. The only difference is a mysterious darkness flickering beneath luminous gray eyes, a vague hint of a secret, dangerous and personal."  

 Wade Gotwalsl, who has been an international model and actor for nearly twenty years, was the perfect choice. He is an all American guy, who is a yoga guru and gorgeous in every way - personally and profesionally. Few men can reach full maturity and show no sign of age - and he is one of the lucky few.

Morla Gorrondona - Stunning Actress in House on Black Lake Trailer

When I searched through the talent agency rosters I knew exactly what I was looking for. Nicole Kidman might have been a choice, but I was looking for a different look - with the same flaming red hair - yet with a darker spirit. When I first met Morla I knew she was right to play the part of Ruth Sandeley - the broken beauty. Morla is a powerful presence, but she exhudes the dark side (perhaps due to her upbringing in New Orleans). She has a great look that makes her a sought after model, yet she is also a well trained actress. So, scenes we shot with little time or preparation as an indie team were made easier due to her professionalism.

She is a rare gem - a flaming beauty with great talent and style.
