An Award-Winning Playwright

My first full length play, FREE, won the NY Drama League’s 1989 Playwrighting Competition and was given its premiere production in London in 1991.  Since then there have been more than 400 national and international productions of my plays and monologues in 33 States, 13 countries, and on every continent except Antarctica.  Full length play I-2195 won the Women in the Arts Award at UM St. Louis and was produced there in 2005.  Short play HERE TO SERVE YOU won the 2008 Goshen Peace Play Prize.  In 2011 I was Playwright-in-Residence for New Voices for the Theater, a two-week playwriting intensive for teens produced annually by SPARC (School of the Performing Arts in the Richmond Community) in VA.   I am a fifth generation Californian living in Seattle, WA, married to an amazing man, and ridiculously happy.
