Simply Ava is a half-hour comedy drama in the vein of “Girlfriends,” “Living Single” and “All of Us.” The show revolves around newly divorced Mompreneur, Ava McCoy, owner of Ava’s Hair Bar, an upscale hair salon in Washington, D.C., where Ava and her trusty employees, Rishelle Rainey, Celeste Wellington, and Toya Woods offer a chic ultra-salon experience and hairstyling is “on the house.” At the start of the show, Ava’s personal life quickly unravels when her house burns down, and she loses everything. The demands of raising her 8-year-old son, Quinn McCoy while trying to put Ava’s Hair Bar on the map become more than what Ava bargained for. As she waits on the insurance proceeds from the house fire, Ava and Quinn temporarily move in with Ava’s brother and widower, Troy Griffin and his 10-year-old daughter, Calia Griffin. The show depicts Ava’s close bond with Troy and how often the loyal siblings turn to each other for advice on their businesses, parenting and romantic adventures. On occasion, Troy serves as Ava’s voice of wisdom, especially when their freeloading cousin, Brodie Banks drops by unannounced. Brodie is naïve when it comes to running a business and raising children, but it doesn’t stop him from trying to give Ava some wacky, unconventional advice. The show follows Ava as she receives and gives advice adding depth to her character and feelings of uncertainty about herself and decisions.

Hey there! Gosh, where do I begin? Welp, I've been writing stories since 2004. I penned my first script, Growing Pains for a teen youth group that was performed at my church. The play was well-received and thus began my writing journey. I would continue to write over a span of 16 years, honing my craft as a playwright. In 2009, I launched my first production company where I brought to the stage, a powerful, thought-provoking story, The Devil Don't Live Here Anymore that centered on domestic violence. I would change my course shortly thereafter to author several books on grief, loss, and finding hope. In 2013, my stage play, The Healing Floor won the audience award in the drama category in...
