    Waiting for Joanie won the Carlton E Spitzer Excellence in Writing competition and was produced by Motivational Theater, November 2014.   

    My first play won a California Arts Council Award. My plays, scenes and monologues have now received more than 160 productions/readings. In the past three years they have been performed in the US, Korea, England, Canada and Scotland.

     In 2014 fifteen of my plays were selected for production or staged readings. Two were selected for publication by Applause Books. To date three of my plays have been selected for production in 2015

    A San Francisco Bay Area resident, I am a member of the Dramatists Guild and The International Center for Women Playwrights.

    I'm so excited to be taking up a Djerassi resident Artists Award in May/June 2015. I'll be working on a new play (working title 'Subversive') and enjoying the peace and quite of rural California.

    I'll be travelling over from Australia, and will spend some time in New York. If there's any chance to meet up with ICWP members in San Francisco or New York before or after the residency, I'd love to hear from you. Email:

    Very best wishes
