I'm a professional writer and script/screenplay/story consultant who works with production companies, ad agencies and event producers serving government agencies and Fortune 500s.
With over 100 produced film, video and audio scripts under my belt, my credits include a dramatic feature film that’s earned 19 festival awards (two for the screenplay), a short metaphysical romance (I also directed and edited) that earned 11 awards, five interactive projects for the Museum of the U.S. Army, an Emmy-nominated Public Works video, and a multi-award winning environmental video for Levi Strauss.
With a passion for empowering creativity, I do a great deal of screenplay and story consulting. I was the editor (or co-editor) of three books in the acclaimed Now Write! series of creative writing anthologies, and served as the telecon host for International Screenwriters' Association for four years.
My own projects include as an award-winning screenplay about the invention of the brassiere, and a TV pilot about American women during World War II adapted from three historical novels (under option.). I can help any project become more inclusive and female forward!
