Writing Projects

Current Projects and Background

Currently, I am finishing my novel and...more soon.


24-Hour Theater - Wrote a 10-minute play, Catch Phrase, directed by Will Gearring. Grateful to Dog Story Theater for putting up my play along with 5 others to a full house. Watch this space for future shows.


In February 2019 I attended a three-week writers' residency with Bonnie Joe Campbell at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna, FL. 


My writing experience started before I could read. I’d grab a yellow legal pad from my mom’s desk and sit for long stretches scribbling marks on page after page as if I was writing. I haven't stopped since. I write poetry, essays, short stories and plays.


Writing shows for The Second City was like getting a Ph.D. in writing at gun point. Still grateful for the experience and my life.


Additional Writing

• Nonfiction book, Yes, And! Harnessing the Power of Improvisation to Transform your Life and Work

• One-woman show Epiphany 3:29 

• One-act play, Lakefront Property, Winner of the Ben Franklin Playwright Contest

Novel Coming Soon!
