Read full description of the books A Theory of Expanded Love:Trapped in her enormous, devout Catholic family in 1963, Annie creates a hilarious campaign of lies when the pope dies and their family friend, Cardinal Stefanucci, is unexpectedly on the short list to be elected the first American pope. Driven to elevate her family to the holiest of holy rollers in the parish, Annie is tortured by her own dishonesty. But when "The Hands" visit her in her bed and when her sister finds herself facing a scandal, Annie discovers her parents will do almost anything to
uphold their reputation and keep their secrets safe. Questioning all she has believed and torn between her own gut instinct and years of Catholic guilt, Annie takes courageous risks to wrest salvation from the tragic sequence of events set in motion by her parents’ betrayal.
Read information about the authorMy life and work have been profoundly affected by the central circumstance of my existence: I was born into a very large military Catholic family in the United States of America. As a child surrounded by many others, I wrote, performed and directed family plays with my numerous brothers and sisters. I graduated Cum Laude with a double major in French and English (with a writing emphasis) from Loyola Marymount University of Los Angeles. Here, I wrote weekly columns as Feature Editor of the Los Angeles Loyolan. My first job out of school was a writer of Camp Fund stories at the Los Angeles Times, and my writing was published every day of the summer. I worked in radio for several years in San Francisco for CBS and NBC, where I was Manager of Advertising and Promotion for KYUU-FM and where my writing was heard on-air. When I was 26, I dropped out of the corporate world to follow a lifelong dream to become an actress. At the same time, I met my creative soul mate in an Improvisation class -- an accomplished artist from Canada named Gordon Halloran.
In Toronto, I began writing for the theatre when, as an actress working on a solo show, The Tarragon Theatre invited me to be a member of the Playwrights Unit there. My first play Six Palm Trees, co-written with Gordon Halloran, came out of that effort.
As a playwright and performer I toured with my partner Gord Halloran, in my original theatrical plays in Canada and internationally to standing ovations and excellent reviews. One of my plays was adapted to a feature film called Singing the Bones (www.fatsalmon.ca). While Gord worked as dramaturge and director to my theatre work, I have promoted his work as an artist ever since I met him over 30 years ago.
My path as a writer has always been a personal spiritual journey, although my work is not religious. I am drawn towards stories that I don't hear often in the mainstream culture. I enjoy bringing to life personal, pivotal stories which have the kernel of transformation and which connect us all to each other.
