  • An article from the Dragon Con – source here – in 2015 stated: “She wishes she could have everyone see her short film, “Coward”, which she wrote and directed (it stars Rose McIver, of iZombie) but there are rules against just showing it publicly. She says it’s in several festivals, but as soon as she can, she’ll post a link to it on twitter.”. It still hasn’t been released to the public (June 2016)
