Borgholm? Where in Sweden is that? Borgholm is a city and the seat of Borgholm Municipality, Kalmar County, Sweden with 3,071 inhabitants in 2010. It is located on the island of Öland in the Baltic Sea. The Swedish Royal Family has its official summer residence at Solliden Palace a couple of kilometres outside the city centre.

This is my first ever playwriting award, unless you count an Honorable Mention @ SFSU and a Finalist selection @ the University of Arkansas last year. Do they want me to fly to Borgholm to pick up the award? The play’s a psychological drama centered around a girl’s trials and tribulations dealing with parental divorce. This was my first attempt at writing from a female perspective, not such an easy proposition. As a writer I believe you have to constantly test yourself and, if you come up short, at least you’ve tried.
