Cold November an intimate creation


Cold November is the refreshing tale of a rural matriarchal family and their history with the custom of modern-day hunting.

Deleted Scenes – Duck Dynasty


Several years ago Samara Von Rad and I put on a fundraiser for our lovely friend Christian Zyp. It was a series of 'deleted scenes' from well-known television shows that we wrote in a very satirical fashion. I just found this one in my draft pile. I was never used.
