I have been a writer since Grade 4; a performer all my life.
Six Palm Trees, co-written with Gordon Halloran (www.paintingsbelowzero.com) which toured to California, BC, Alberta and adapted to French, was inspired by growing up surrounded in a family of fourteen children.
My work as a playwright and performer has toured internationally to critcial acclaim in Canada,the United States, England, Ireland, Sweden and Amsterdam. (www.fatsalmon.ca)
Two monologues from Singing the Bones were published in Best Women’s Stage Monologues of 1998 (Smith & Kraus, New York).
In the Year 2000, four monologues from my stage play Just A Little Fever were published in Best Women’s Stage Monologues of 2000. (Smith & Kraus, New York).
In 2001, Gordon Halloran and I produced a film called Singing the Bones, adapted from my stage play of the same name, which premiered at The Montreal World Film Festival to critical acclaim in 2001, as well as Mill Valley Film Festival, Tahoe Film Festival and the Ojai International Film Festival — and has screened almost every year since then, somewhere in the world.
I have published fiction and non fiction in print publications such as the Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Vancouver Sun, Georgia Straight, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Herizons and others as well as monologues on CBC regional and national radio.
A THEORY OF EXPANDED LOVE is my debut novel.
I am a travel writer and have written numerous blogs. I am a member of The Writers Union of Canada as well as Federation of BC Writers.
