“I wanted to give a special thanks to Elizabeth English at the Moondance Film Festival.She took the time to call me and tell me how much she enjoyed reading my TV Pilot “Avenging Angels” and provided one-on-one feedback. It was very special that she took time out of her schedule to talk with me and provide valuable feedback.” ~ Jennifer Phillips
