This is a brand new venture for me. I’ve never written a play before in my life. The play is based on my book, Desert Magnolia, a book that’s very dear to me, as it’s set in the U.A.E. and the American South, where I’m from.
The play was fun to write. I loved every moment of it, and at the same time, it was therapeutic and the message that it conveys is something that I can feel good about. I’m ready, so ready to see this on the stage. The question is, who’s going to take it on first? We may have a good lead, and I’m waiting it out at the moment, but hopeful that this is going to be a wonderful and rewarding experience.
