About

I’m moderate-to-liberal gay man with a long background in theatre studies (BFA, University of Miami; MFA, University of Minnesota; PhD, University of Colorado), specifically in playwriting and dramatic literature.  I live in Miami, Florida, and work for the public school system.  I’m a playwright and novelist, and I look at the world with a writer’s point of view, seeing relationships between characters and the world.  I write a lot about politics, but I also include theatre, antique cars, friends, and the nature in my backyard.  I look for the humor in everything, often finding it in the little ironies in life.  Politically, I’m a Marxist… as in Groucho.

My real name is not Bobby Cramer.  Bobby is the main character in several of my stories, including my first off-Broadway play.  His nickname, “Mustang Bobby,” was given to him by a friend when he got his first car: a 1966 Mustang GT convertible.  Like me, he’s an optimistic but wary guy just trying to get through life without bumping into the furniture.
