Back when I was in college, my father asked me more than once what I was going to do with a theatre degree. I’d always say, “I don’t know, Dad, but acting is all I want to do.”
Pop in on me anytime after college, and the chance that you’d find me acting in a production of any kind was pretty slim. I was in a local commercial or two, some in-house videos, an occasional church skit, and a couple of community theatre productions, but my love for acting had to take a back seat to raising my kids.
Then I started writing books, and I found that thing that was as fun and exciting as acting. I was hooked, obsessed. I wrote four novels in two and a half years (And they get good reviews, too!)
Over the last year, I have been recording my first book, Interiors By Design, for release with Audible, and I feel like my two great loves of theatre and writing have come together.
Here it is, Dad, this is what I’m going to do with my theatre degree. Now I only need to sell about 2000 audiobooks to pay back the tuition. You can help me feel good about my college choices! Just press this Self Esteem Button Now.
