SCREENWRITER & PLAYWRIGHT
Michelle Mary Schaefer, has always been a writer since she was a kid. Growing up, she has always been creative with a very vivid imagination. At one turning point in her life she became a serious writer when she was inspired by her college, Professor Carl Freundel who wrote the play Roses , about the Holocaust, which she portrayed as Anna as she shouted "bright and black," crying while on the train towards to the concentration camps. During that time, between classes and rehearsals you always find Ms. Schaefer with her laptop writing. However, now, Michelle Mary Schaefer may not be carrying her laptop around, but always has a pen and paper to jot down ideas, inspirations to continue her writings.
If you are interested in bringing her work alive, or have her write a script, always feel free to contact her!
