About Irene

Irene is a playwright and author whose work challenges the audience to imagine the world differently. Rich with references to pop culture, classic literature, and speculative fiction, her plays and stories are best enjoyed with a healthy dose of curiosity and sense for silliness.

Her work spans multiple forms of media. For the stage, she’s crated short plays that are ideal for fringe festivals and longer pieces that are perfect for local theatre companies and school performances. She’s written for multiple independent video games, where her talent for puzzles and hidden messages shines. Her young adult fantasy novel, From Light to Dark, takes readers across the boundary between two vastly different worlds.

Irene holds an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction and a PhD in Text and Technology.
