My newest book, “Thirty-Three Wednesdays” is finally complete and will be available soon. Please stay tuned for updates !!

Here is an excerpt :


 Love can be a confusing thing, an elusive thing to chase. And finding it, and having all the factors line up. Maybe you meet right after one of you gets married, or decides to take a job cross country. So not only are we looking for true love, but we have to time it right or it won’t work.

 That’s where this story begins, by finding true love. No the factors did not line up. I had missed my window by a little bit. But I was determined. I would never give up on love, not even if it took years. This wasn’t something I set out to do, fall in love with someone so far away that, whether or not she was happy, Janelle was not available. There was family to consider and other road blocks I was never privy to. But all I knew was that I was feeling true love for the first time in my life, so yes, I kept the blinders on.

 So what you hold here is the tale of something special.

 Why 33 Wednesdays you ask? The end came on a Wednesday, and as we had never gone long without talking, I started counting the weeks every Wednesday as things progressed. Finally, at 33 weeks I stopped counting.

 That being said I think it’s time to put a few things out there. The first is that I will own all of this, all the mistakes and hurt. I could have left at any time, but I chose to stay in it and keep trying. I’ll also own the fact that I have issues that contributed to all this. I’m a fixer by nature, so the harder things got the harder I tried. It’s not in my nature to walk away.

It’s up to me whether I stay or leave; I can’t blame anyone other than myself. No one can hurt me unless I let them, period.

Christmas Around the World

Posted: August 26, 2016 in Uncategorized

I have developed a Christmas Story / Property that I am starting to show around in the hopes of getting it produced. In case there is any interest, and in order to protect myself, I am posting it here, just a small treatment.

Ken Barrs “Christmas Around the World”

Day Interior Telegraph Office

Lights come up and we see an old timey Telegraph Office, its operator has his back to the audience, he is receiving a telegram. Telegram finished, he realizes he has an audience; he turns to face the audience and proceeds to introduce himself.

Wilford Pine

Oh, hello, I’m sorry; I didn’t see you all there. My name is Wilford Pine, and I’m the Telegraph Operator here at Sherman’s Bluff. For those of you that don’t know, the telegraph was the main source of information for a very long time. And since here at Sherman’s Bluff we have families from all over the globe, it’s important for them to be able to stay in touch with their families.

Wilford Pine takes this opportunity to interact with a few children in the audience, asking them where they’re from. Segment concludes, and Wilford begins a story.


Well, one of the advantages of being the telegraph operator is that at this time of year you get to help families connect, and also it’s an opportunity to hear about the different Christmas traditions from all sorts of places.



Just the other day I took a message for the Schmidt Family. Did you know that a big part of the Christmas celebrations in Germany is Advent. Several different types of Advent calendars are used in German homes. As well as the traditional one made of card that are used in many countries, there are ones made out of a wreath of Fir tree branches with 24 decorated boxes or bags hanging from it. Each box or bag has a little present in it. Another type is called an ‘Advent Kranz’ and is a ring of fir branches that has four candles on it. This is like the Advent candles that are sometimes used in Churches. One candle is lit at the beginning of each week in Advent. Boy oh boy would I like to get to Germany one day and experience that.

Wilford stands up and addresses the audience.


Well folks, give me a minute and I’ll be right down to talk, take pictures, anything you like.

Wilford proceeds to the audience and the photo op area.

Fade to black

This is only one show, we will do other countries and their stories, a different one every hour. We will talk about holiday food and music from each country.


Here are some pictures to inspire the stage set.
