ABOUT CONNIE

I’ve been told there are two kinds of people in this world: Theatre people, and everyone else.

 

I’m the first kind.

 

I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Theatre degree, and got my MFA in Drama from the University of Georgia. While I had always been a writer, I got hooked when I concocted my own audition pieces.

 

I worked at Turner Broadcasting in Atlanta, then moved to L.A. to start an Independent Production Company for a group of investors. One film I produced won a Saturn Award from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror, and another was a finalist for the American Video Award from the American Film Institute and Billboard.

 

Eventually I boomeranged back to my home state of Minnesota and started Movies for the Ear® so I could write/produce audio movies (which are a whole lot cheaper than the other kind). Creepers Mysteries: Haunted Cattle Drive won the Audie Award for Best Original Program from the Audio Publishers Association. It was endorsed by Good Housekeeping magazine and distributed under the Good Housekeeping Kids label.

I wrote and produced audio-based drama kits and mystery party games that were sold to schools and after school programs in the U.S. and to military bases overseas. My current project is a middle grade spy mystery. I teach at The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis and founded the Middle Grade Writers Group

I live in Minnesota with my husband and two furry friends, and I never complain about the winters.
