Show Business

I hope you're still watching

 As you may have surmised, Show Business has many difficult challenges and obstacles to overcome; I'm proud and blessed to have had the many opportunities I've been given. To have "tread the boards" with so many talented celebrities, has provided a lifetime of learning; not to mention, how much I've learned personally and professionally from my cohorts, in all the various productions we've done. 

While writing poetry, screenplays or my novel, "ALEXANDER: Journey Into Light", I have also been able to tap the imagination passed on to me from my  late, incredible parents. 

My novel and career  are  dedicated to them for their unconditional love and support. There are Endowment Scholarships in each of their names  at Baylor University. There is a third Endowment Scholarship, since passing of my opera singer/teacher/ brother, John Mack Ousley---a dynamic personality and singer; a truly exceptional man.  It is with regret and joy that he is welcomed into the loving arms of our parents. 


 And now, a fourth Ousley Endowment Scholarship, in my name, for Baylor students studying Theatre Arts. As a family, we have always believed in helping develop the talents of the future.
