Other writers cited included Julian Fellowes (‘Gosford Park’), Morgan Ward (‘Riding In Cars With Boys’), Michael Sloane (‘The Majestic’), and Will Rokos and Milo Addica (‘Monster’s Ball’).

     He lives with Thomas L. James in New York City. He has just written "Patients," a new pair of one-act plays set in a psychiatric hospital, and currently is collaborating with Mr. James on a screen adaptation of Booker Prize-winning author Penelope Fitzgerald's novel, "At Freddie's."
