Winnie Holzman is the writer (with acclaimed songwriter Stephen Schwartz) of the hit musical Wicked. For television, she created the memorable series My So-Called Life, which starred Claire Danes.

More recently, she created the ABC Family series Huge with her daughter, Savannah Dooley. Other theater credits include the little-known musical Birds of Paradise, originally directed off-Broadway by Arthur Laurents. She lives in LA with her husband, Paul Dooley. Their ten-minute play, Post-Its: Notes on a Marriage, is performed frequently around the world.
