She co-wrote and directed an original children’s musical in Los Angeles as well as performed in several dramatic plays, musicals, operas and later with her own original rock band. Since returning home, she’s written, directed and produced her own solo show – “Bud, Blossom & Bloom!” (One woman’s transformational journey), wrote, directed and performed a 20 minute solo piece in verse entitled “Our Sleeping Beauty,” wrote and directed “A Brand New Day” and “The Last Survivors of Tonopah” as an instant playwright.
