Congrats, Jill!

Updated: Jun 11, 2020


I want dedicate my first blog post to my friend, advance reader, and source-of-all-great-writing-knowledge Jill Girardi whose short story Don't Eat The Rice will be turned into horror-action film Best Served Cold.

This is so small feat: the movie will also feature Malaysian MMA star Ann Osman and will be worked on by production houses behind The Mandalorian, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Captain America: Winter Soldier, and Pacific Rim.


I've known Jill for a few years and we initially bonded over our mutual love for extreme music. As time went on we discovered that we were both knee-deep in this fiction thing, and as a writer who's way ahead of me in the game, she's always been super generous with her priceless advice. Escape From Happy Palace would not have been possible without her on-point tips, and I am forever in her debt.

Once again, congrats Jill! Can't wait for the movie to be released!

P.S. I was serious about that blurb for my next book!
