Short Romantic Story Competition, had screenplays advance at the Austin Heart of Screenwriting Film Festival, was a finalist in the New York Television Festival ION First Act Competition, among regional and collegiate awards.

Sonneveld founded Puglish Books in 2007 to publish children's books that cut a deeper nerve than what he was seeing in the marketplace. The inaugural publication, PANDORA'S LUNCHBOX (created with Andrew Krzak), focused on the effects of childhood bullying. Blogcritics Magazine hailed, "Unlike other books on the same subject, Sonneveld and Krzak open us up to the harsh reality of bullying," and called the book, "pure emotion."

I just finished reading your article "Ferguson, Missouri, the Washington Redskins and the Out-of-Touch NFL" and would like to point out that you are getting on the bandwagon about what the nickname “Redskins” mean. You are saying that the term is derogatory because it refers to the scalps of Native Americans (because few others say the same thing)...but how can you send a scalp to purgatory? Read the advertisement again and the word/term "red-skin" is referring to "Indian" and not the scalp (the genocide of N.A. or any person is wrong in all sort of ways). If you want to say the term is derogatory because you want to side with the Native Americans that don’t like the term…that’s fine. But let’s not say “Redskins” refers to scalps when Native Americans of the “RED-TRIBES” state it is a source of pride for them. Nowhere in American writing has the term Redskin been used in a disparaging way…if so, please provide the article.
No problem, Stephen! Let me know if you ever have any questions and I'll do my best to help out or give you a second pair of eyes.
Reading your most recent article. The word you are looking for is 'negotiations' not 'negations'. Please proofread your work.
you one of my favourite writers! Merry Christmas to you too!
I have signed up to what is quickly becoming a waste of a site to post this single comment. I visit this site to read about sports. I do not care for whatever your or any other writer on this sites political agenda is, and personally I cant stand when it is shoved down my throat with every article that I read. You are a sports write (supposedly) so why not act like one and write about sports. If you want to keep writing about politics write for msn or ny times.
You are welcome man. It was such a well researched article.
No problem. It was one hell of an article. One of the best I've ever read.
Read your article on Trade unions in wrestling. I have myself been interested in psychological side of wrestling. It was very satisfying to see the way you addressed the aspect.
I just had one request. I am writing a piece of the union. Is it okay with you if I cite you in my work?
I will say thanks. Its nice to see the Incredible Hulk as well. :)
I am in Mississippi right now - But plan to read it as soon as I get back to Birmingham. Thanks for the heads up.
