About Ron Osborne

ro2 As a child, I started writing stories in my family's basement in St. Louis, Missouri.  Fortunately, I grew up to go to the University of Missouri School of Journalism (Go, Tigers!).

After a career in promotion, advertising and more, I discovered my true love (other than my Mississippi-born wife, my two children and my dog)...playwriting.

Since then I've had the good fortune to have had my plays produced by hundreds of theatres throughout the U.S. and Canada (including productions on the main stage of LORT-member theatres). In addition, my work's been published by Samuel French (six plays so far plus French's "Exceptional Monologues 2"), Smith & Kraus (Best Women's Monologues of 2001, 2007 and 2010), and others.  I'm particularly thrilled to have had my writing recognized in nearly 100 national playwriting competitions.

Finally, I'm also a proud member of The Dramatists Guild of America.
