By way of introduction, I'm a writer/producer/director of documentaries and television programs. I am also a long-time member of the Writers and Directors Guilds, recipient of two WGA awards for outstanding scripts, and recently honored with the WGAW Morgan Cox Award for service to the Guild. But my most important honor has been the privilege of working alongside some of the most inspiring writers in our industry.
After many exciting years of creating real-life stories - - from Zoolife with Jack Hanna to Painting with Elke Sommer, from Disney's Children in Japan to PBS' National Memorial Day Concert -- I have taken on a challenging new project. I have written a novel.
The photo of me at the Hotel Ritz's Bar Hemingway (with my martini and Hemingway's typewriter), offers a clue to the story. The novel is set in Paris, a city that I have been lucky to research through personal experience. I lived there as a student in the 60s, and years later in the 70s, as a writer. If you click on "Paris," you'll see photos of the Parisian locations that inspired my novel.
You can also learn more about me by clicking on "Bio/Photos," "WGA Award," and some of my favorite "FB Posts," as I have continued to speak out for both writers' rights and for women breaking those glass ceilings.
Thanks for visiting, and I promise, more soon....
