L.D. Sargent (Lorrie Denise), a native/resident of San Francisco, California, was a young girl with lofty dreams of becoming a television comedy star. She began acting training in her hometown at the American Conservatory Theater and she trained and performed at local theaters. L.D. moved to Los Angeles, California, but she gave up acting and focused on writing plays. She joined playwrights groups and co-produced plays for stage readings and live performances in Los Angeles, Ca.
L.D. had a mention in the Los Angeles Times for her staged play, Memoirs, 1987. In 1989 L.D. became a proud AWARD WINNING playwright, awarded the Los Angeles Inner City Cultural Center’s Short Play Competition for her play, The Fear of Brotherhood. In 2000 L.D.’s play, Crooked Letter, I won the San Francisco Theatre Bay Area C.A.S.H. Grant Award. L.D. also wrote television scripts, her work was featured in two popular 1990s television shows; In Living Color (Season 5) and Married With Children (Season 6).

L.D. left Los Angeles and returned home to San Francisco for college, earning degrees in Early Childhood Development and Developmental Psychology. L.D. continued her love of writing for the theater and she wrote articles for the San Francisco Chronicle and My Bay Area Life magazine. L.D.’s writing style is candid, personal and surreal with a “quirky” California-esque comedic flair. L.D.’s creative repertoire allows her to happily flourish as a published author, blogger (see below links), painter, knitter and future NYC resident where she will write, work, live, love and be the success she was destined to become!
