"Now I'm more inspired artistically and creatively," Kerry says. Danny organized her book collection in a library cabinet and sorted the covers by color. "I tend to remember books by their covers, so this was a creative solution. I want to be here reading scripts and watching movies. I've even started writing my own screenplay.

After Danny's jump start, Kerry has continued making improvements. She added a desk for her assistant and installed more shelving.
