Dale’s fourth short film, The Dinner Guest, which she wrote, directed, and produced, is currently making the festival circuit. So far, it has screened at the Newport Beach Film Festival, the New York City Independent Film Festival, and the IFS Los Angeles Festival. Dale's third short film, Unintended, which she wrote and co-produced, stars the amazing Jeff Perry (from the TV show Scandal), and has screened, to date, at the Sedona Film Festival and the Newport Beach Film Festival.

Dale has written and will be directing and producing two new short films: Entwined and Dirty Little Secret. She has begun assembling a wonderful production team and will be shooting these films in August and September 2018.

Dale has expanded her teaching. Besides her yearly stint at the Santa Barbara Writers Conference, she will be presenting, for the second year, two workshops at the prestigious San Miguel de Allende Writers Conference in Mexico in February 2019. She is also teaching writing classes at Santa Barbara City College School of Extended Learning. Check out her teacher profile and class videos here.
