She holds an MFA in dramatic writing from Texas State University. She was recently named the Grand Prize Winner in the LGBTQ Screenwriting Competition for her one-hour police procedural "Dead Name." Audrey's full-length play Imagine That was recognized for Distinguished Achievement by the Harold and Mimi Steinberg National Playwriting Awards. She's the 2018 recipient of the Judith Barlow Prize for her one-act play The Only Hills We've Ever Had. Her 10-minute play Buried was part of the Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival in NYC in August 2018, and Imagine That was a semi-finalist in the 2018 Eugene O'Neill National Playwrights Conference and in the 2018 Austin Film Festival Playwriting Competition. Her work is primarily in the absurdist tradition, pushing situations and characters to the extremities of reason. Audrey is fond of pit bulls (she is fearless); her spirit animal is Brock Lesnar (she is tough); she is an avid fan of a hockey team that hasn't won the Stanley Cup since 1967 (she is optimistic and patient); and she makes a mean gingersnap (she knows how to follow instructions in a cookbook). Her plays have been produced by Shoestring Radio Theatre (San Francisco), Articulate Theatre (New York), and Mildred's Umbrella Theatre Company (Houston). Audrey is proud to be a member of the Dramatists Guild.
