My recent plays include Remains and Returns, a winner of the Ashland New Plays Festival; Amending, developed with the St. Louis Shakespeare Festival’s Confluence Writers Project; and Through the Elevated Line, Jeff Award nominee for best new work.

My scripts have been produced or developed by Golden Thread Productions (San Francisco), The New Group (New York), Paines Plough (London), Playwrights Foundation (San Francisco), Queens Theatre (New York), and Silk Road Rising (Chicago), among others. My plays have been named finalist or semifinalist for the Bay Area Playwrights Festival; Broad Horizons Theatre Company’s New Voices, New Plays; Landing Theatre Company’s New American Voices Playwriting Festival; and the O’Neill National Playwrights Conference. I live in St. Louis with my husband.
