Screenwriting Reviews

“well-written, well-documented . . . this work is quite impressive for a first-time writer”

Dean Zanuck, The Zanuck Company
Jaws, Cocoon, Driving Miss Daisy, Get Low

“. . . [I]t was a really easy read, and that's surprising considering what its obstacles are . . . You're a terrific writer . . . I have a wonderful sense of place and a window into these young men and their exploits.”

Sheila Gallien, former development assistant of six years to William Broyles, Jr.
Apollo 13, Cast Away, Unfaithful

“Beautifully written.  I enjoyed reading it and have no critique to give you.”

“This starts off a little slow but when the emotion hits it knocks your socks off.  This is one of the best scenes I’ve ever read in any of my classes.  Character and emotion are the keys to good writing.
You nailed them both.”

Stephen Katz
Screenwriter (L.A. Law, A-Team), screenwriting instructor (Collin College, Plano, TX)
