The Hot Ten are my top 11-20.

I'm semi-retired, have three game groups, I enjoy playing "schizolo," and my wife likes entry-level games, so I play a LOT of games.

I'm still active as a musician and writer. Performing highlights include Grammy and Emmy nominated performances in the orchestra at Glimmerglass Opera, a recently resurrected solo career (euphonium, bass trombone, & tuba), and playing in the backup orchestra for headliners such as Wynton Marsalis, Tony Bennett, Mel Torme, Doc Severinsen, and CHICAGO.

The last two musicals I directed were Man of La Mancha, won seven awards, and Chess, which earned five awards.

The website below is for my Civil War novel, acclaimed for its historical accuracy and nominated for the 2010 Franklin Award for best historical fiction, military theme. http://www.amazon.com/The-Unfinished-Work-Frank-Meredith/dp/...

"The Battle of Gettysburg As Seen By Two Teens: the Stories of Tillie Pierce and Daniel Skelly" moves in and out of Amazon's weekly top ten Gettysburg books sold. Gettysburg HS bought a copy for every student and added it to their curriculum.

My 3rd book, "Life in the Pits -- or, It's OK, I'm with the Band" is a humorous look at my 46-year career as a pit musician. http://www.amazon.com/Life-Pits-Its-OK-Band/dp/098439611X/re...

I'm currently working on two books: another Civil War novel commissioned by historian Scott Mingus and a fantasy novel about the search for the last surviving dragon(s).
