Fantastic
***** Military Story Showcase
Fantastic to have Preacher's Daughter selected to the finals. As I have no military experience, it shows what a good story, research and writing can achieve.

An Excellent Venue for Any Veteran or Patriot

It's An Honor
***** Military Story Showcase
It's an honor to have my screenplay Rag Doll make it as an Official Selection in the showcase. It's one thing to make it into a festival, but it is personally so satisfying to receive attention for writing a story that, hopefully, entertains and celebrates our military.

This was a Special Competition
***** Military Story Showcase
This was a special competition for me. Not only was my screenplay Human Terrain picked up as one of the winning scripts, another of my scripts Camouflage was picked as a finalist. Communication with the showcase was easy and quickly answered. While there was no pretense of awards, the recognition of both scripts was very much appreciated.
