I used to be an interesting person. I have lived in three Latin American countries, taught remedial freshman composition at several colleges, and won an Emmy for my work as a children’s television writer, producer and lyricist. I teach animation writing for CARTOON (the European society of animators), screenwriting at La Universidad de los Andes in Santiago, Chile, and I’m a frequent guest speaker at the USC Graduate School in Cinematic Arts. But recently, for a period of four years, I did nothing but worry about whether my sons would get into college. My anxiety-ridden blog on the subject has morphed into a book, The Neurotic Parent’s Guide to College Admissions, an LA Times bestseller, published by Prospect Park Books. It has received rave reviews from harried college counselors and angst-ridden parents who would rather laugh than stress about the process. Please check it out – We still have two years of tuition to pay.
