Writing

My writing career kicked off in the mid 80s. I have written in almost every possible genre. This section covers only Fiction, Non-Fiction, Theater, Poetry, and Translations. Cinema has its own page and comes in two sections: Produced Screenplays, that is scripts turned into films, and Unproduced Screenplays. which means that they can’t wait to be produced.  Music and Plays have their own tabs as well. They are different types of writing after all.

Many of the works listed below have been published, unless otherwise mentioned, under my name. I sometimes writer under Frank Debonair. See the Books tab for the complete up-to-date list of published works.
