Looking for a book writer/lyricist or book writer to either work on your current ides, or some ideas and themes I have. Prefer more dramatic emotional themes regarding strength of human spirit, search for authenticity, and deeper values that can touch and serve the audience. I have a strong love of the more classical musical comedy (great melodies, harmony and lyrics) so hope to meet a more contemporary based writer to bring both our strengths together. Prefer substance over style, with the emphasis on a great story, further enhanced by the score. Can write in pop, r&b, jazz, and standard musical theater.

Andrew Turner

Bookwriter, Lyricist

http://ajturner.net

I've only been writing for ten years. I'm an author, playwright/librettist, and lyricist. On the author front, I've published four sci-fi novels and one non-fiction book. I have completed one additional sci-fi novel which is in final editing, and about 2/3 of another that is in draft form. I've written the book and lyrics for two full-length musicals, "Wisteria" and "Lube: A Modern Love Story." The former was a collaboration with long-time friend and musician, Faith Page (http://faithpage.net), and the latter was with Brandon Bowerman, a second-year music student at UCLA. The book for Wisteria was never completed, and it's a project I'll get back to someday. Lube is finished and ready for staging. Since this is my first time, I'm sure there will be a lot of work to do on Lube before it actually opens, and I'm completely open to collaborating with a producer or theater company to get it ready for its world premiere.

Attached below are three additional songs from Lube, apart from what I uploaded for the New Voices project. The first is sung by homophobic Mary who is complaining that Andy, who is under a lot of pressure because his best friend David is depressed and suicidal, has been acting up a bit. The second is sung my Manny's girlfriend Lizze once she realizes what has been going on the whole time -- that her boyfriend is really gay, but is deathly afraid of acknowledging that fact or coming out of the closet. The final one is sung by 'fire and brimstone' Pastor Baker, who preaches eternal damnation for homosexuals, to Manny who has come to him seeking advice about his 'gay friend.'


I"m not actively seeing other projects, but if the right opportunity presented itself, I would give it due consideration. I'm mostly interested in writing lyrics, and I think I'm pretty good at it. I guess time will tell in that department. Lube is a gay-themed musical, and I am strongly in favor of working on projects that contain gay elements and help advance gay rights and acceptance.
