I'm a full-time writer of full-length plays, with my eight full-length plays posted here.

In all my plays, someone dies or attempts to die.

The search for a way out of the existential crisis (the search for God) is another theme.

My plays involve the afterlife and the paranormal as well as current topics such as reeducation camps, nuclear war, abortion, and school shootings.

I started writing plays in 2013. (Before that, I had written screenplays and short stories mainly.)

I live primarily in the Greater Boston area (Nashua, NH) and also in Albuquerque, NM.

I'm a member of the Dramatists Guild, Playwrights' Platform (Boston), Merrimack Valley Playwrights (Lowell, Mass.), Drama Circle (Athol, Mass.), Alliance of Los Angeles Playwrights, and the International Centre for Women Playwrights.
