I've been a professional freelance writer since 1990 -- magazine and newspaper features and personality profiles; corporate communications and video scripts; press releases, public relations plans and media relations. My client list includes high-profile corporations, major chemical companies and a long list of non-profit organizations.
In 2014, I completed my first full length stage play, Potato Gumbo, a touchingly honest and, at times, zany look at the potentially brutal challenges of aging. Potato Gumbo tells the poignant story of Gretchen and Thomas, her dream, an ill-gotten pair of handcuffs, a diagnosis, and the adult children who must walk the delicate line of parenting their parents. It is the story of so many of our lives – past, present or the future we must inevitably face. It was nominated for the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
