About Me


Me. Toronto, 2015.

Below are a bunch of links to bios of me in various and sundry places on the internet. What you won’t see in any of them is that I have three grown children and three grandchildren. You won’t see that I’m married to Dan Bishop, whom I first married in 1976, that I love gardening, cooking and most things domestic. I love music, all the arts and crafts and coffee, chocolate and bourbon and I am semi-retired, writing plays and reviews for BroadwayWorld Phoenix. It’s September of the year Two Thousand Seventeen and I’m nearly 58 years old. Here’s to all of it, past present future, and in all the cracks and crevices in-between.

  1. Dear Ms. Jeanmarie Simpson Bishop,
    I am an editor at NPR’s Morning Edition in Washington, DC. I would love to speak with your about work (play & movie) regarding the first woman elected to Congress, Jeannette Ranking. Please let me know if this is possible. I can be reached at canderson@npr.org.
    Many Thanks, Chinita Anderson


  2. Hello Ms. Jeanmarie Simpson Bishop,

    I’m Chinita’s colleague, and a producer at Morning Edition. We’re interested in taping something with you soon about Jeannette Rankin. Let me know what might work for you at jperkins@npr.org.

    Thank you,
    -James Perkins


  3. Hi Jeanmarie!

    It’s a pleasure to make your digital acquaintance. I am working on a performance art piece related to my developing professional identity, and the historical identity of similar ‘professionals’ who have come before me, and Rep. Rankin has been inspirational. I having been combing the internet and libraries in the Chicagoland area to find a script of A Single Woman, but I have been unsuccessful so far. I’m of course happy to pay for a copy, but I can’t find anywhere to do that either.

    An Amazon search for “A Single Woman” turns out to be quite silly:

    Looking forward to connecting with you,
