About Stephanie Walker
Stephanie Alison Walker is an award-winning playwright whose work has been produced across the United States from New York City to Los Angeles and internationally in Australia, Canada, Singapore, The Philippines and Japan. American Home – her play about the foreclosure crisis – won American Blues Theater Company’s Blue Ink Award for Playwriting in 2011. She won the 2008 South Florida Theatre Festival Audience Favorite Grand Prize for The Women’s Theatre Project production of her play Three Fittings, a finalist for the prestigious Princess Grace Playwriting Award 2008 for The Art of Disappearing, and a semi-finalist for the 2009 HotCity Greenhouse Festival of New Plays in St. Louis.
Stephanie’s book titled LOVE IN THE TIME OF FORECLOSURE (affiliate link) — and inspired by the blog of the same name — is a personal, frontline account of the entire foreclosure process, including the costs no one talks about – the gut-wrenched anxieties and a stress-tested marriage, along with endless support from family and friends. She narrates her and her husband’s battle from their first foreclosure notice to the day they move out, complete with Kafka-esque lenders, last-ditch phone calls to the governor, realtors from hell and awkward looks across the office. She’s sharing her story so others know what to expect – from lenders, from brokers, from the family across the street.
