I am a dedicated animal welfare advocate. I live in Los Angeles with my musician husband and our rescued senior dogs. I love to read, hike, travel, and do a classic spit-take whenever something is really funny. I am fluent in German and French, though I don’t understand why both those languages feel they need more than one definite article.

I am a graduate of Wesleyan University. I was chosen as one of ScreenwritingU’s 15 Most Recommended Screenwriters of 2013. The comedy web series I write and produce, "Verdene and Gleneda," was awarded the Hotspot on the Writers Guild of America’s Hotlist.

"Lala Pettibone’s Act Two," my first published novel, embraces the themes found in all of my work... It’s never too late to begin again, and it must be cocktail hour somewhere. It was a finalist for the Foreword Reviews Book of the Year Awards in the Humor category. The sequel, "Lala Pettibone: Standing Room Only," will be released by Amberjack Publishing in September of 2018.
