Being on stage performing or directing gives me more satisfaction as a HUMAN BEING then I can ever explain. This is why I was created.
Writing is my passion. I need to feed the souls of the world with laughter and a new way to look at life. HEY Somebody's gotta do it!
My Dad's last words to me were..."I want you to write a book Girlie!" I ALWAYS did what my Daddy told me, and LOOK what happened. A Novel.
As a playwright, I get great joy watching my words come to life, especially when a TONY AWARD -WINNING actress STARS in my work!
As a proud Ensemble Member of AMERICAN BLUES THEATER, I'm asked annually to write for our RIPPED Festival. My play directed by Heather Meyers .
From my play "ONE DAY"; Unemployed actresses over 50 take an Agent and a few more hostage. AHHHH...a dream come true!!
