Overall Rating
  • What a monumental moment. I’m speechless. I’ve never been more blessed in this grief journey until the recognition of A Sons Gift as WINNER First Screenplay writer. It took me 11 years to write the emotional published story ‘A Journey of Unconditional Love’, yet during the CoVid onset I was inspired by a friend (Nick Cordero) to complete within 3 months. I know my Nicky is playing a huge role beyond the veil. I am forever grateful for this award and allowing our story to come to life. ❤️ Thank you
