Author Reading: Maggie Rowe, SIN BRAVELY

Maggie Rowe grew up in only a moderately religious household, but her fear of eternal damnation drove her to become a Born-Again Christian. At 19, she checked herself into an Evangelical psychiatric facility, where she was surrounded by a ragtag cast of characters, including a former biker meth-head struggling with anger management issues and a set of identical twins tormented by erotic fantasies. There Maggie launches a campaign to, in the words of Martin Luther, "Sin bravely in order to know the forgiveness of God." Told in a voice both funny and heartfelt, Sin Bravely is a tour de force, voice-driven debut that examines how one woman finally found the middle ground between heaven and hell.

Maggie Rowe has written for Arrested Development and, for the last 15 years, has produced and performed in sit ‘n spin, Los Angeles' longest-running spoken word show. She co-wrote the screenplay for and directed the New Age religious mockumentary Bright Day and is the creator of the theatrical satires Hollywood Hellhouse and Hollywood Purity Ball. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, writer Jim Vallely.
