More About Me
I've found I've actually been able to put my English degree to good use, having written television scripts, theater reviews, textbook and feature essays, full-length and short screenplays, and anything else that might require a pen for hire. Though I can find appeal in almost any word-related activity, it is film writing that has most fully captured my imagination. Whether a Welsh period piece, a modern romantic comedy, or a post-apocalyptic fantasy, thinking in images, action and dialogue has become second nature.
I live with my husband, my son, my sister, her husband and their sons in a refurbished turn-of-the century farmhouse on 35 acres in Wisconsin. We also have three horses and 18 chickens. We are working at living in community, growing food, getting mostly off the grid and living slow, intentional lives in harmony with nature. (As long as a woodchuck is not eating our broccoli seedlings. Then all bets are off.)
I've completed three feature-length scripts and my current project is NORTH PASSAGE, a short to be filmed on my farm by established LA photographer/CGI wizard Kevin Pontuti in the spring of 2011 (see "Find Me Online" for the website).
