Luvs to teach. Luvs to sing. Luvs to write. An admirer of all things theater, Linée has been an ardent student of dramatic arts and songwriting for the past few years. Who knew Phoenix, AZ (where Linée has made her home since 2000) had so much to offer aspiring playwrights! A native of Atlanta, Linée's one performance experience dates back to the summer of 1979 when she was in a musical production of Jesus Christ Superstar at what was then the North Side School of the performing arts, under the direction of William G. Densmore. In her spare time, she hones her acting skills while teaching adult business workshops. She has actually managed to make business writing thrilling, sexy, and alluring. At other times Linée maybe volunteering as a radio program reader for Sunsounds of Arizona or hanging out at a play reading or a live jazz performance. After spending many years figuring out how to put her many talents to use in a meaningful way, Linée is now writing for musical theater. The inspiration her passion for the arts can be expressed with five words: "Art, at its core, heals."
