I'm a ten year veteran of tv comedy writing - most noteably "Designing Women". My screenplays and stageplays - to quote the LA Times - "combine humor with heartache." I hear the music of a character's "voice." I love the art and craft of telling a larger truth through humor and a personal prism. Sit com writing is a group effort. I longed for more personal story telling and became a playwright in my spare time. See Theater.
The show I met Ed Asner on. And Robin Ryker. And Haley Joel Osmont - who had impeccable comic timing as a five year old!! His scenes with Ed were hilarous - and impressive!!
Our first job. I started my career with a partner. We were the go to - what would women think? - on staff. Back when they thought all women were alike. Not.
