I MET Hazel Phillips officially at one of the Gold Coast Independent Film Nights at the Art’s Centre…she was a special guest and since then we have become great friends.

We have since had afternoon tea at her home to hear her play the piano, polish her Logie, cuddle her pup, and swap scripts to read and review.
