I've written 17 novels for major publishers including Hachette and Random House publishing. My TV pilot, adapted from my Hachette novel Fallen Angels, was a semi-finalist in the NEXTV TV Writers Pitch Contest and a Semi-Finalist for the Stage32 Happy Writers TV Writing Contest. Stage32 has provided a storehouse of connections and education as I transition from novelist to screenwriting and TV writing. My stories have strong, empowered female leads. My kids are in the entertainment biz. One is an Emmy winner, working for Floyd County Prod. (Archer) and the other acts in films, sings in off-Broadway productions and lives in Manhattan.
Unique traits: Able to adapt quality novels into a screenplay or pilot on short notice.
