Artistic Statement

Artistic Statement

I started writing plays -- and continue being consumed by the drive -- to create multi-dimensional roles for women of all ages and strata. Partly, that comes from being an actor myself and always being on the hunt for the next juicy role, and partly it comes from growing up in a college town in Mississippi (where there is no shortage of fascinating women from whom to draw inspiration).

A lot of my work takes place in the South because those are the rhythms I love. First and foremost I always begin with character. And even my dramas have a sizable chunk of comedy.
