“Hi Gail – I just received the final hardback publication from the Fenn warehouse and I wanted to thank you personally for the superb piece of writing you generated in adapting my screenplay into a book. I am greatly appreciative of your sensitivity and skill at extracting a novel out of a movie. I always felt like your adaptations of the Harper-Collins “Avonlea” books were equally superb, so I was pleased to recommend you to Jordan Fenn. Thank you so much for accepting this assignment.”
