The longest relationship of her life has been in the theatre having started performing at nine years of age. Either as a performer, director, educator and writer she’s continually honing her craft and challenging her own skills. The second-longest relationship of her life has been writing.
She started writing bad poetry in high school and just hasn’t ever been able to tame her passion for writing. Daphne has spent the last 20 years writing plays and short stories. A few years ago she turned her pen toward Romance Novels when she saw an opportunity to combine her love of writing and theatre. The novels grew out of the desire to share her experience with readers who love both romance and drama.
She has a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre (emphasis in acting, play-writing, and directing) from UCRiverside and a Masters in Theatre (emphasis in history and criticism) from San Francisco State University. She is a co-founder of Petaluma Readers Theatre. Having sat in thousands of rehearsals, hundreds of performances, dozens of costume fittings, and having spent an incalculable number of hours building sets and costumes, she is ready to bring you a breadth of stories set against an authentic theatre backdrop. Please join Daphne in her sometimes wacky, often fascinating, naturally heartfelt journey into backstage romance.
