Lately & Upcoming


My one-woman stampede WILD HORSES will have productions in 2023 at Phoenix Theatre and Williamston Theatre.

In BACKSTORY, an enigmatic volunteer in a prison becomes a fateful bridge between two estranged sisters - one an incarcerated mother, the other an influential lawyer who helped put her sister away. Based on a Texas prison-volunteer program, this intriguing new 3-woman play had a workshop at San Antonio’s Public Theatre and will receive a reading in Austin.

Agatha Christie cited TRENT’S LAST CASE as "one of the best detective novels ever written”; now I’ve adapted this witty mystery in a taught, twisty, hugely theatrical play. Currently in development with several scheduled readings.

Artistic Purpose

As a playwright one goal of mine is to create challenging roles and inspiring opportunities for actresses to strut their stuff. We know gender parity is a thing, and never is it more glaring to me than when skilled artists miss their moment, simply because there's so little being offered for them to do. I believe my purpose is to generate stories and experiences that will live deeply in audiences and artists; I strive for and embrace that responsibility in all of my work. Read on >>
