Abigail Van Alyn
I was born in New York City, raised in Greenville and Charleston, SC, and spent most of my adult life in the San Francisco Bay Area. An early career in New York journalism was followed by thirty years in the theater, acting on stage and in feature film and television. For ten years I was a company member of San Francisco’s much-awarded Eureka Theater where, among other notable achievements, the company developed Tony Kushner’s Angels in America. On a parallel track, I coach business leaders in communications skills.
I've had two plays produced. In the Wilderness/In the Zoo, a play for children, toured northern California schools and children’s hospitals and was broadcast on San Francisco’s PBS affiliate. And I'm especially proud of Lying to the Holy Spirit, about the works of Anton Chekhov, which was commissioned by Harvard University as part of the first cultural exchange between the US and USSR after glasnost. As pseudonymous George Fletcher I've published two books for young readers, modernizing Roman myths.
I live in far northern California at the foot of Mount Shasta, walking, gardening, coaching, and writing plays and long fiction.

The Other Woman
by Abigail Van Alyn
Robert Buchanan is a powerful psychiatrist with a shadowy past; Anna Sheffield, a prominent sculptor whose life has been destroyed by a violent gang rape; and Michele Palmer, a pierced and tattooed exotic dancer, a young mother who was once Robert’s nightmare patient. In the deceptive quiet of Berkeley, California, these three form a deadly triangle.
