I'm a verse novel and short fiction author, screenwriter (TV, film and the web), actress and poet. After several years of acting -- and performing in dozens of TV shows, films and commercials in Los Angeles -- I returned to my writing roots. I studied screenwriting -- writing several spec feature scripts, web series episodes plus an original TV pilot -- and further embraced my loves of fiction and poetry -- writing verse novels and several short stories.
I wrote "Depth of Focus: A Novel" and "Depth of Focus: The Stanzas." Verse novels, both books tell the same story of a young woman's quest for independence, love, career success and the healing of her broken family. But, one version of the book ("The Stanzas") is broken into the poetry/rhythm I heard when I originally wrote it. I'm currently writing my 2nd and 3rd verse novels -- "Siblings & Other Torture Devices" (comedy) and "Windmills" (drama/suspense). For each, I plan to release both versions. I'm also working on a dark comedy script.
Parts of my resume are posted on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) at www.imdb.me/kenya. To see it in its entirety -- along with samples of my work -- visit my website, www.kenyadwilliamson.com. I post excerpts, short stories, news, etc. And until I have enough short fiction to complete my anthology, I'll occasionally post some efforts on my Scribd and Smashwords profiles.
