Thirty Years a Dresser – the book!

In 2016, I wrote a thirty-three week long column for Queen Mob’s Teahouse called Thirty Years a Dresser. My intention was always to turn those essays into a book.

This summer there was no theatre to dress, so I got to be a full time writer and revisit the project. I assembled last years column into a manuscript and doubled the content by adding thirty new essays. I get very excited when I can finally print my work out and hold it. It becomes real.

I submitted Thirty Years a Dresser to my publisher at Coffeetown Press. Now I wait for their feedback. I hope they like it.
