After High School I formally studied in three different fields, all in the Arts and Humanities: Music (piano performance) at Juilliard and the University of Maryland; acting at Maryland and Circle in the Square; and philosophy at University of Pittsburgh, University of Maryland (B. A. with honors) and Ohio State University (two years toward PhD).   To say I was conflicted about the career I wanted to pursue—all of them difficult and single tracked—is an understatement.  In short, the perfect education for a writer..
