About Brenda

From Manhattan and now living in NM mountains where my muse has found me. (I go back for my artistic fixes as much as I can.) My play 'Talk to the Hand' is being staged in Rahway, NJ (34 minutes from Penn Station, NYC) This dark comedy involves three spies, some not very spy like. I have just finished a thriller, 'Changes' involving a serial killer and I Ching. Going to my site, Dream Arts Productions will expose you to some more of my writings, including my book, 'The Shadow of You' which is based on true events in this author's past life. Yes I typed 'past life'. I hope you take a few moments to go to my site and view my work.
"I've always believed that through art we all learn to feel, experience and cherish what it means to be alive. When I'm writing, I know that the characters I've given life to, have a mind of their own, if, I will only listen. An example is Allie from 'Talk to the Hand'. She refused to allow me to give her an ending that she could not live with. There have been four different endings for her and she insisted on the final one. Getting inside of a character's head for me is a glorious time. When I'm done with a play, I miss them (characters) at times.

I have no choice but to create and my dream is to share my fictional children and their mysteries with as many people as I can." I write because I have to, it's what I do.
