DALLAS LAW “Not Yet, She’s Not” Places as Second Rounder at Austin Film Festival

Yes! Our debut! And we couldn’t be happier.

Dallas Law Ladies
Laurel Aarsvold, Amy Mattila, Diana Richardson, Debi Yazbeck

Being a part of the great Dallas Law Ladies is a delight. I get to work with three talented, dedicated screenwriters (all those blondes above). We live in four corners of this country, so we have writing retreats two to three times a year in Eden, Utah (yeah it could have been the original garden).

We have a conference call every week where we laugh, cry, gossip, cheer each other on and, yes, we even write. I love these ladies and I’m so proud to be a part of our group.

We will all meet up again at the Austin Film Festival starting October 25, 2017. Cheers, Ladies!

Lilyhammer “Bring Jerry Home” WINS HONORABLE MENTION!

It’s not the Grand Prize Winner but it’s the closest thing to.

 SPF Cert

Lilyhammer “Bring Jerry Home” is a crime-drama/dark-comedy spec teleplay about a high ranking Mafioso who testifies against his Mafia Boss and enters the US witness protection program requesting a new life in Lillehammer, Norway where he resumes his Mafia ways under a new identity (a fish out of water) with great success until the avenging Boss discovers his whereabouts.

Even better than the certificate — they praised my work, “We could not be prouder to have your work be an example of the screenplays that our competition is able to discover. … You truly have a gift.”

Wow, just wow.

SPF Letter

These guys are great! — SCREENPLAY FESTIVAL 2015 Movie & TV Winners. (I’m in the “Television –  One Hour Spec” section.)

Lilyhammer is Netflix’s very first production and one of my all-time favorite shows. (If you like The Sopranos and/or Fargo — TV or movie, you should check it out.)

According to Rolling Stone Netflix and Lilyhammer changed the world of TV.

I wholeheartedly agree.
