Hello! Iím a playwright and author. As a playwright I've had the pleasure of seeing my work performed in New York and throughout the U.S. and to have been a finalist in the Eugene O'Neill National Playwrights Conference. My award-winning 10-minute play, She & He toured nationally and became a short film starring Anita Gillette. Pinochle & Roses was produced on Theatre Row. Other plays include award winning Ghost Mommy about a biracial lesbian couple in 1970s Brooklyn who want a baby. Inheritanceis a black comedy about an unusual family returning home for a reading of their father's Will. In 2012, believing that talent has no expiration date, director Benno Haenel and I became founding artistic directors of The Prism Stage Company, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit company. Our mission is to provide a venue for professional playwrights, actors and directors past 40.

I co-authored two works of nonfiction, Raised by the Church with Edward Rohs, published by Fordham University Press, and Midlife: A Manual with Dr. Steven Estrine, published by Element Books.
