I am thrilled to announce that a short film I wrote, Generations, is currently in pre-production and will begin shooting in Spring 2017. My dear friend, George Maguire, approached me in September to write a film about family secrets & coming to terms with one's heritage. The film is inspired by his own life & family history. After writing a few drafts, we quickly assembled our amazing creative team: Kourosh Ahari (director), Alex Bretow (producer) & Nancy Madden (associate producer/cast). This project is deeply personal and a labor of love for us all.

Please take a moment to watch the video and check out some of our fun perks. And remember that your contribution is 100% tax-deductible--so get it in before December 31.

This is a huge creative step for me as a writer & artist. I hope you all will continue to be a part of that journey by donating and/or sharing this post. You can also like our FB page:

Much love to you all and thank you for your support.


GENERATIONS is a film that follows the story of Bill, a doctor who must learn to accept himself after tragedy at work and family conflict provoke him to discover the truth about his lineage.

GENERATIONS explores how vulnerability can be a catalyst for moving through personal shame and ancestral wounding—a journey that can help heal generations of the past and generations yet to come.

Currently working on the short film, "Generations"

"SLUT" written and performed by Candice Holdorf

I was a Virgin for a long time.

Perhaps you think
I mean
I took 21 years
To let a man Penetrate me

My Worthiness
By the diminishing inches
Of his Cock?


I mean a Virgin
In a language long forgotten:
Lost in the ashes
Of burned witches

And in the silenced vows
Of Brides of Christ,
Whose names were erased
In canonical Genocide. 

I was a Virgin.

A woman unto herself;
Whole; Unshackled; Owned by No One;
And in this way
We’ve always been Virgins--

Our women's wisdom,
Written in our Mothers' bosom,
Survived the translation migration
From page to pyre.

Observe your Holy Rights.

Do I deserve to be attacked,
Unwritten from history,
Because I fucked my way
Through the Zodiac?

Keep your righteous indignation.
Your taunts and jeers
Only urge my Vestal Reclamation
And the resurrection of my Erotic Innocence.

We. Are. Coming.

So here I stand:
Palms stretched, legs spread,
Re-Virginized once more,
While making love to the Sacred Whore.
