Karen Marguerite Moloney

Karen Marguerite Moloney got her playwriting start as a child in Whittier, CA, where she wrote and produced her first plays on a picnic table stage. She acted throughout high school and college and minored in drama at BYU and, if she’d said yes, would today be a high school drama teacher in Southern CA. Instead she earned an M.A. in creative writing from BYU and a Ph.D. in 20th-century British and Irish literature from UCLA. An English professor at Weber State University, she teaches literature and creative writing. She travels regularly to North Friesland, a place whose “beauty won’t leave her be.” No surprise, really, that she should set two plays along that haunting coastline. She also served as editor of Dialogue a Journal of Mormon Thought.
