"I've worked with (and spent a bundle on) 'script doctors' who have not helped me to realize what I was trying to do.  Gail seems able to see and articulate what's working in a script and what needs to be improved to make it marketable. She's a sensitive and decent person who knows how to make suggestions that are
constructive, not destructive." - Anne Flournoy, Writer/Director: Sundance, NY Film Festival, Guggenheim Fellowship winner
