LATEST NEWS  April/May 2018 -- The Writers Guild of America named me as one of nine television access project honorees. WGA It's an amazing program. Hats off to the diversity staff and to Glen Mazzara, Eric Garcia, and Leo Chu. "Elephant & Castle" named Best Original Screenplay at the London Independent Film Awards following a Special Commendation from the British Independent Film Awards. The project is now with producers Joan Lane ("The King's Speech") and Bill Chamberlain.I'm working for producers Dominique Telson and Leland Hardy on a true-story feature called "Miracle on a String," and I recently traveled to Lafayette, LA to meet the family at the heart of the story. Gearing up for pilot season with two new original specs: "WWJD?" and "The Secret Life of Danny Rizik."The whole "Mr. Confidential" team is further developing this stage musical (I wrote the book and lyrics) that premiered at NYMF at the Alice Griffin Theatre at the Signature Center with a sold-out run. Also working on a new musical adaptation that is a secret for now.

MINI BIO -- Born to a Mexican mom and Eastern European Jewish dad, I grew up all over the world, living in Cairo, Honolulu, Austin, Phoenix, Albuquerque, New York, Los Angeles, and Ft. Collins, Colorado (among other places) – and I dove into show business immediately upon graduating high school, moving to New York from Texas at the age of seventeen and studying at the American Academy of Dramatic Art and NYU. Over the years I've written stage plays and musicals, television shows, movies, and books -- working in Los Angeles, New York, and London. I'm co-founder of Babyhead Productions with husband Ronald Shore. We have been together since 1994, were married in a non-legally binding ceremony performed by a rabbi in 1996, legally married in Canada in 2003, and then, for good measure, legally married again in the United States in 2013. We soon plan to explore the possibility of marrying again on other continents. I'm a CASA volunteer (Court Appointed Special Advocate) to a fantastic foster kid, spent ten years heading a mentoring program for LAUSD high school writers, have facilitated rap groups for LGBTQ kids, and my husband and I are being held hostage by three incorrigible dachshunds. Send help.
