Marla White started her illustrious career as a storyteller at the age of four by drawing on the TV screen to help Winky Dink get out of mortal danger, earning her a firm spanking. Deterred by the negative feedback, she studied to be a park ranger instead until she realized it was really a TV show about park rangers she liked, not the actual outdoors.
She’s been involved in several award-winning television movies for ABC, CBS, USA, and HBO and was the head of television for Emmy Award winner Peter Tolan. She currently teaches story analysis and story workshops at UCLA. When she’s not writing, she’s out in the garden, hiking, or putting together impossibly difficult puzzles.
