David James

Author's Bio

After writing poetry for over thirty years, I've recently tried my hand at playwriting with some success. I've had six one-acts produced off-off-Broadway in New York, and roughly a dozen other plays produced in Massachusetts, Michigan, and California. As a lifelong poet, it's been a rush to have other people "say" my words in the plays. I highly recommend it!
