ABOUT:
Darlenne Susan Girard is a freelance writer, script ghost, and published author. Enigmatic and publicity shy, she is not so much mysterious as intensely private, preferring the solitude and seclusion of the Pacific Northwest over the sparkle and lure of Hollywood and New York. Having spent most of her career as a script ghost, she is only now beginning to release projects written under her own name.
