MT CozzolaI’ve been hooked on stories ever since the Christmas my parents gave me The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and a diary with two gold keys. I hid one key as a backup, and used the pages to write my own version of a Mark Twain novel (“Ma reckons I should git a nose job.”). I loved locking away my words so much that I bent the key out of shape. No problem, I had a backup key…except I’d forgotten where it was.

Today, I write plays for audiences of all kinds, create content and videos for publishers and other organizations, and consult on script and book development. I also teach classes and workshops in storytelling and playwriting.

Whether in business or the arts, my work is guided by a striving for authenticity, clarity, detail, and an eternal search for that extra gold key.
