    After searching other websites, I located Elizabeth through Guru.com. I am very fortunate to have met Elizabeth! She turned my "so-so" book into a first class screenplay. I truly believe my product will now meet with success, and I owe much of it to Elizabeth. If I had it to do all over, I go right back to Elizabeth Mayes. Excellent contact!
