Dawna Wightman - Ghostwriter

Toronto, ON, Canada

Actor, playwright, novelist, mom / half Buddha half Kentucky Fried Chicken / Really great at: acting, writing & IDEAS.


Creativity is a blue ball (sparks flick from my fingertips). Good news? I'm having a wildly interesting life. Award winning play writing, professional acting, kick a@& mom. Bad news? There are only 1440 minutes per day to make dreams come true.
