Long before I could print my name, I was "writing" dialogue. As a child, I did a lot of pretending and talking to myself, but this thrilling process of creating conversation involved editing — the alpha and omega literary love of my life.

The first screenplay I ever read was for the 70s film, "Billy Jack," because the paperback version was literally the movie script. As a 13-year-old kid, this alien style of writing spoke to me on somehow familiar terms, and I said to myself, "I could do that." I married young to escape an abusive household and turned to reading the classics while raising babies because college was out of the question. The thing I loved most about reading was the way I was able to "see the movie" — cast, set, and all — providing the most satisfying (and cheapest!) of escapes and adventures that, in a word, saved me.

Our own deepest truths reveal themselves in the stories we tell. My stories explore relationships I either never understood, or never experienced and wished I'd had. It doesn't get more personal than that, or more universal.

INFP/4w3, here to support and collaborate with like-minded people to create through film the LIGHT we want to see in the world.
