Delanie Kay Tucker originally began life with the determined, if misplaced, goal to grow up to be a horse. As a second option, at the age of five she decided on a life in the theater and has never looked back. She has been involved in most facets of production, from chorus member ("What's my motivation?") to director ("Find your own motivation!") through the spectrum up to and including frenzied techie ("What motivated you to push that button?!"). An instructor for the American Children's Theatre, she also serves as a member on the board of directors. This is her first published play.
