writer/deviser 

 I believe in the power of words and the importance of stories.

I am curious about who gets to tell stories and why some stories are well known and others go untold.

In my writing I explore what happens when stories are told in new ways and from different perspectives.

I am currently working on a series of reimagined Greek Myths where the

women at the center of the myth tell their own stories.
