I’m a Detroit writer, singer, songwriter and actor. I worked for many years as a morning radio personality, so I got to describe myself as a professional smartass. I miss that.


I love to write, write, write.


What I’m working on now is a book about women of a certain age who’ve never been married. You know all those stereotypes you have in your mind about spinsters and old maids? This book will squash them like a bug. If you know of a 40+ woman who’s never been married and would be willing to talk to me about her experiences and her feelings about being a singleton, I’d love to hear from you.

I also write plays and I’ve had a number of them produced, which is very nice. I like to sit in the audience and see what other people have done with my work. Click here for more information about my plays.


On the fiction side, my comic novel about L.A. called, Palm Tree Pipe Dreams. PTPD is starting to take off and generate a buzz and I’m very excited about that. I want terms like, “craptastic” and “radical asthmatics” and “lumpen solitarians” to become household words.

I’ve also written two historical romance novels. You can find out more about them here.


I’m in a pop-rock band with my sister Tina called, McLaughlin’s Alley. Tina and I sing for and write songs for the band. The website is: www.mclaughlinsalley.com.

My brother Sean is an actor and playwright. Here is his website: www.seanparaventi.com.
