Originally from Georgia, I lived in uptown New Orleans for many years and now live with my husband Bill and rescue Chihuahua Mitzi in Milledgeville, GA. I received a BA in English/ Creative Writing and an MFA in Screenwriting from Louisiana State University-Baton Rouge. I've written over a dozen feature-length screenplays, one short screenplay (which I produced and directed as a short film, "Route of All Evil") a short play, short stories and three graphic novels, Uptowners, Piano Lessons, and Queensgate. I'm currently conducting research on my next screenplay.
In addition to being a screenwriter, I am an associate professor of Humanities at Georgia Military College where I teach composition and Creative Writing. Previously, I taught English and Literature at Nunez Community College and founded the Pelican d’Or Short Film Festival, serving as its director for ten years. I was also an adjunct faculty fellow at Tulane University School of Continuing Studies where I taught Art & Craft of Film and Screenwriting.
