DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
It's been a ROUGH Saturn Return. After a life-altering emergency forces Zad out of a job he’s had for years, directionless he spends most days glued to the TV, trapped inside his apartment, stuck in a depressing roundabout pulling him farther away from the life he once had and the one he once envisioned for his future. Lured out of his apartment, Zad accompanies his sister to what looks like an ordinary weekend at Nana's but turns out to be a tightly veiled Ascension hosted by Nana and her six sisters. A secret coven of witches. Before the festivities of the weekend come to a close the coven mysteriously disappears.
To uncover the truth of what really happened in the mysterious disappearance of the Seven Sisters of South Mumps, Zad embarks on an unexpected journey of strange and often hair-raising events that leave him questioning what he thought he knew about his family’s magical upbringing. With the help of his handsome new friend Alden and the help of a few other unusual characters, Zad unearths long-buried family secrets that push him farther onto a path of self-discovery but also lead him center stage into a sinister plot put in motion by his cold and distant Uncle determined to correct the tragic wrongs of the past. An incredible adventure of folklore, witches, and romance to leave you laughing while quickly turning the pages.
Dorian Alexander is an author, playwright, and baby astrologer. A New York native with a long background in the theatre arts stemming back to the seventh grade when Dorian was first bitten by the acting bug landing an audition to be an understudy in his very first middle school play. A desire to perform on stage quickly turned into a passion to write and produce. Dorian attended the Academy of Art University where he wrote, directed, and staged several original stage plays in the heart of San Francisco and continues to spread the message that theatre heals, nurtures, and inspires.
Baby Capricorn is Dorian's first self-published literary work, a magical tale about his own Saturn Return with a supernatural twist, a spiritual introspect at the ancestral roots that bond us to the treasures of our past into the present, and on into the future. Humor is a common thread found across Dorian's creative work, laughter often being the anecdote for uncertain or troubling times, and the belief that the full expression of one's higher self is something that anyone can achieve no matter where you come from or how big your dreams.
