As an actor with a passion for new play development, Kate always thought it was just a matter of time before garnering enough tools and inspiration to try putting pen to paper, herself, but she owes Chris for helping to expedite the process. The afternoon he approached Kate with the idea to cowrite she began to hear these women as clearly as any role she'd ever played. She went home and wrote the play's prologue that day. She thanks Chris for being a great partner and giving her the opportunity to find her voice as a writer. She hopes now to use it more regularly to amplify the voices of others.
OTHER WRITING PROJECTS: Kate is currently co-writing a TV pilot with Keaton Wooden.

Chris Brickhouse is a Chicago Actor/Screenwriter whose love for the true crime/horror genre has led him to this project. After a recent trip to London, he was astounded how after hundreds of years people around the world are still fascinated by a madman who was never caught, yet forget about the women who would forever be his "victims". To tell this story, Chris believed it imperative to have a woman write the piece with him for checks and balances and there was no better choice than Kate Black-Spence whom he owes gratitude, love and respect.
