Shelley Segal

Shelley Stolaroff Segal is a playwright, actor, composer, and essayist living in Greensboro, North Carolina. She enjoys wearing different artistic hats so long as it doesn’t interfere with raising her husband, twin teenagers, and three cats. Her latest play, My Son, is about autism and race, and premiered in New York City. It was presented as a TED talk at TEDx East in NY and continues to tour. Publishing credits include the anthologies, Voices from the Spectrum, Cup of Comfort/Autism, Chicken Soup for the Soul, and Multiples Unlimited.
