My play "Miss Keller Has No Second Book" was one of four plays selected for Gulfshore Playhouse's New Works Festival in Naples, Fl, and what a great week it was! I was blessed with an amazing cast, director, stage manager, and along with the hard-working staff at GS, the entire process was productive and delightful. The surprise factor was the engaged and enthusiastic audience -- a smart, sensitive, honest, theater-savvy crowd who valued their own participation in helping to develop new theater.

Thanks to all who made me feel so welcome, and who embraced my play so wholeheartedly! This play (and this writer's soul) feels so much better because of you.
