In this contemporary re-imagining of Cyrano de Bergerac, Cy, a former Army sergeant kicked out under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," takes on the world with her words as a blogger, blowing the whistle on sexual harassment within the Army and going toe-to-toe with her former commander. She secretly adores her friend Rose, who in turn has her eye on Cole, an inarticulate infantryman. Cy reluctantly signs on to ghost-write Cole's courtship of Rose, but lets her own fantasy take priority over the reality of the situation. This thought-provoking drama explores themes of truth, deceit and silence, and the power each has to do good or harm.

She is a member of the Dramatists Guild, StageSource, and Rhombus playwrights' group.
