Reviews of my screenplays:
“a fun and exciting script. The action is constant and Julina is always in the fight for her life. The adventure elements of the story are well drawn, visual, and move the story… story is easy to follow. The writer does a great job of following the beats of the story. There are clear goals for each scene, and each scene follows the next logically and with the purpose of moving the story.” – review by BlueCat Screenplay Competition & Short Film Festival of one of my action spy scripts.
