"Wow. I'm at a loss for words and that never happens. Liam, you did a truly fantastic job with I See Spiders and I'm really impressed. Wonderful finesse, very funny, fantastic pacing and I absolutely love the flaws and conflict you've brought to the story. Great rhythm, tragic and heart-warming, touching, just such a beautiful job."
Travis Milloy, writer/director Pandorum and Infinity Chamber

He is quick and understands the briefs supplied very easily but, most importantly, he is thorough in his research and always delivers a quality book on time and on budget."
Jason Fenwick, Director, Demand Media Limited


"I've had the pleasure of working with Liam on a novel-to-film adaptation. Besides being a talented writer with an incredibly vivid yet realistic imagination, Liam is a brilliant collaborator who is willing to go the extra mile and take risks along the way, all for the sake of elevating the project, the story and its characters."
