A Little Slice of Life
When I was young, I accompanied my dad and mom on archaeology digs. We found artifacts hidden deep in the earth, each one connected to a person from the past, each one with a fascinating story- or mystery- to be discovered. As I grew older, I began looking for the hidden artifacts found within living people- their stories, their triumphs and tragedies- and I worked to put voice to these important stories, so instead of being buried for centuries, we discover the greatness residing in the ordinary lives, now. These hidden treasures have been the basis for the fifty plays I have written, as well as the monthly radio show I write, which is now in its eight season. I am inspired so much by the human spirit and courage, and the way these stories serve to bring us all closer together in understanding.
