Linda Howard Cooke

As a newspaper reporter, I learned to recognize and translate for readers all the human stories out there waiting to be told. I later became a high school speech and drama coach, and served on the board of directors for my local youth theatre company. Through these experiences, I was exposed to the challenges and joys of bringing fresh talent to the stage. Following the adage, “Write what you know,” I began writing the kind of scripts I would like to direct. Nothing in my life has matched the thrill of seeing my work presented by young performers. Playbill, Play Ball is my fourth published script, with, I hope, many more to come.
