After nearly three years of ongoing weekly Zoom play readings with The Schoolhouse Theater - Great Catherine, Twelfth Night, Faith Healer, Betrayal, Dancing At Lughnasa, and Shadowlands (with Daniel Gerroll), to name but a few - I finally had the amazing good fortune to step back onstage.

The ongoing pandemic meant several performances - in both roles! It was a challenge like none I had ever faced before. I am incredibly grateful to have had the experience, as well as the opportunity to work with one of the most extraordinary groups of people I have ever met.
More of the above!
Keep your eyes out for the next book in Cara Black's Kate Rees series - Night Flight To Paris...
I also hope to climb back onto a stage again very soon.
