Professional Screenwriter


"Having worked with Lynn on my first screenplay, she was paramount in getting those ideas out of my head and onto the page.  Lynn works hard and is not afraid to go the extra mile. Having worked with her on Hollywood Hit, I could not think of a better person to have fleshed out these real and funny characters. I can't recommend her highly enough." 
David Ara, Producer
