Personal Quote:

I have been doing other people's plays all my life, and even though I've been doing solo plays, that was just so other people could see that I could be the lead in their plays. When I first wrote "Pretty Fire" it was just so I could get a job in a play where I didn't have to sing. See more »

Trivia:

Her first solo play, "Pretty Fire", was produced at the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles, Manhattan Theatre Club, Seattle Repertory Theatre and LaJolla Playhouse. It received LA Drama Critics and NAACP awards for best play and best playwright. See more »
