Kathleen Frazier

KATHLEEN FRAZIER is an author, actress and coach. She is a Norman Mailer Fellow and a member of The Actors Studio in both the Playwrights & Directors Unit and the Acting Unit. Kathleen’s first foray into writing grew from sense memory exercises at the Studio where she explored her chronic and often dangerous sleepwalking. Episodes began during adolescence when her brother first attempted suicide (a sort of nighttime mirroring of his waking pain) and haunted her for twenty years. The exhausting illness affected all of her relationships and every area of her life. Her personal essay on the subject appeared in Psychology Today. She is the author of SLEEPWALKER: The Mysterious Makings and Recovery of a Somnambulist (Skyhorse Fall 2015). Kathleen lives and sleeps well with her husband and daughter in New York City.
