Children's Books, Novels, Plays
Sims' first novel, SWIMMING NAKED, was published by Viking in 2004. It was called a "brutally moving first novel" (Chicago Tribune) and was a Barnes & Noble Original Voices pick. NEBRASKA followed on Amazon. Her first play AS WHITE AS O was produced by the Road Theatre in LA, directed by Sam Anderson. Variety called it "compelling, humorous and often fluidly poetic."
Sims has also written and produced a musical (THE VIVIAN GIRLS) and several True Body Project theatrical works, created out of a community engagement process to bring light to community voices. She also enjoys performative collaborations with artists.
