When an award winning producer/director/actor tells me my script, “is good,” well into our 13th year of the project, I can only shout for joy! I actually hit rock bottom after the sudden death of my beloved twin brother, Mike. I was drowning in grief. I am still in shock, but starting to swim a … More WE ARE READY!

This latest review is written by a woman who is older than me, yet incredibly … More THE STORY OF SUMMER RAY!
My goal now is to becoming a member of the Writers Guild West. Hopefully, I can do this once the first script is produced and distributed. This opens up a whole new level of dedication for me, to get this first script done. I never cared much about being a producer, although that is what … More THE FILM DISTRIBUTED!
Yep! As suspected, major changes are happening with Summer Ray. Although for over a year, I was very happy with the old title and logline, something else happened that showed me, neither had that “WOW” factor. Introducing the new title of the series and logline!
