I was born in Detroit and now reside in Texas.  In between, I've lived in North Carolina, Iowa, Northern and Southern California, Hawaii, Nebraska, and Florida--not necessarily in that order.  Long before starting to write plays, I concentrated on acting as an undergrad at Black Mountain College, the U. of Iowa, and a grad student at Hawaii.  In Iowa, I acquired a theatre historian/husband; we have two grown children.

I have thirteen published scripts, with some 1500 productions--ranging from Iditarod Elementary School in Alaska to Actor's Theatre of Louisville.  My adaptation of SECRET GARDEN was translated and published in the Netherlands.  My most popular script ANNE OF GREEN GABLES has been produced all over the U. S., with recent productions in England, Scotland, Australia, Canada.  Needless to say, I also have scripts in process.
