S. Denise O'neal

S. Denise O’Neal has lived in Houston for over 20 years and studied Business Finance at the University of Houston. She hails from Shreveport, LA and is the oldest of four children. During her childhood she was raised in a military environment as her father was a sergeant in the US Army. As far back as grade school she has loved the arts, but at the age of 20 when she assisted in the production of her church’s Easter play she found her calling in playwriting and hasn't looked back since! She believes it was creating paper mache props, helping with script edits and splashing all that stage blood on the poor guy playing Jesus that really opened her eyes. Since then she has started two budding theater production companies: Shabach Enterprise (501(c)3) and Watch My Groove Entertainement, LLC. She has written over 15 plays and countless monologues and continues to develop herself as an up and coming playwright, director and producer. Her most recent lists of independent productions include Ms. Lily’s Groove, Just a Few Feet Away and Fly In The Windshield which will be produced in 2013. She is thankful to Scriptwriters/Houston for giving her this opportunity to showcase her talent and hopes that you enjoy what will be the beginning of great things to come.
