Melody Brooks was the first NYC producer to present my work in 1999. My play STRAIGHT TALK AGAINST THE GRAIN was presented in her Voices from the Edge series, as was The Hunting Season. In 2019, I invited her to moderate the post reading chat of my play DESTINATION OOH AHH YUMMY at Conch Shell New Works Reading Series. I am grateful to her and all of the amazing artists who supported my writing journey - the late Richard Harden, Paul Carter Harrison, Jackie Alexander, Cdley, and Michele Shay.
