Her world building is crafted through personal research and investigation of location, time and mores. All her characters are women with agendas, weaknesses and strengths whose own decisions ultimately help them reach -- or not reach -- their goals.
What sets "The Hall of Final Ruin" apart is Doña Sebastiana -- Death herself -- in the cast. This wall-breaking, all-knowing and all-present character brings humor and theatricality, and opens up the play to themes of legacy, well-led lives and deaths, and redemption.
Highly recommended. ”
