“Ron, Thank you for helping me with the editing and rewriting of the treatment for the film The King of Clubs [sold to] ShowTime Television Network in Hollywood. … You helped me to draw well-defined characters without too much language … half of the usual space. Without your [English-language] assistance it would have been impossible to achieve the precision and impact that made it possible to turn my original document into a good selling one.” 

David Sanchez Juliao, South American author of the well-known Latin American Literary Boom, translated to twelve languages, with seven literary awards in Spanish literature, and former ambassador of Colombia to India and Egypt. An earlier work by DSJ won best novel of the year in Colombia.
