"D-girl saved my life! My movie didn't have an ending until she came up with one for me! D-girl's screenplay coverage and notes were brilliant, thoughtful, and comprehensive. I would highly recommend her script coverage to writers at any stage of their career. The script she helped me with got made and then was bought by Sony Pictures!"


- Jack Plotnick (co-writer and director of Space Station 76)


"As a producer for many years in Hollywood, readers like D-Girl are invaluable. D-Girl's insights were always on point as I scoured the vast landscape of screenplays, looking for my next movie to produce. When developing our in-house projects, I could always count on D-Girl for her cogent and intuitive script coverage, and she personally helped me bring some of my favorite projects to life. I would recommend her services without hesitation.”


- Keri Selig (producer of The Stepford Wives,The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe et al)



"It was D-Girl who pulled our first script from the slush pile, and it was D-Girl's coverage that got it sold to FOX.  Not an exaggeration to say that we would not be working in this business today if it wasn't for D-Girl helping us get our first sale.”


- Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (writers of Shark Tale, Freddy vs. Jason, Friday the 13th, Baywatch, Disney's Genie)


"I've worked in this business for over 20 years and have met few people who are as intelligent, insightful and helpful when it comes to script development as D-Girl.  Her notes and input are always valuable.  Her ability to articulate solution-oriented ideas in a thoughtful and sensitive way makes D-Girl that rare person who is truly a savior for writers.  


- Aaron Lubin (producer of Sideways of New York, The Groomsmen, Something Borrowed, Newlyweds, Nice Guy Johnny, Fitzgerald Family Christmas, Public Morals)
