davida cropThank you for finding your way to my author page. We lovers of the written word have so many choices as to which authors to support, which genres we like, and which new books to explore. And is there anything more exciting than discovering a new author?

I’ve been very blessed to have words – writing them, editing and reading them – as a huge part of my life for the better part of my life. I consider it a privilege to be a writer. And I feel just as blessed to be an avid reader. I believe the two go together. So I hope that you enjoy exploring my work.

On July 15, 2017,  I had a first table read of my new play “Just a Note” at the James Bridges Theater at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and TV.  It is my first foray into writing for the stage, but I am encouraged to see where this leads. Please contact me if you are interested in staging it.
