First of all, at the very outset, I would like to express my appreciation to my wife Robin for putting up with me as I ate, slept and lived Lady Jane Grey over the past three years.
I thank her profusely for the countless hours that she spent making my scripts easy for the Voice actors to read, and to format them so they would be easy on the eyes, as I am totally blind, and I don’t see them.
Also, I thank her for her willingness to drive me to all of the recording venues, so we could bring Project Grey Noise to completion.
And, for her willingness to voice a couple characters in the story. I would like to express my sincere thanks to Chase Shelleé for giving her voice to the Lady Jane Grey. Chase has a generous spirit, and her passion for the Lady Jane Grey is almost as strong as mine. I found as Chase and I worked together, that I had to give very little direction to her, and she found things in my Lady Jane character that I didn’t know were there until she developed them. Thank you, Chase, for playing Lady Jane Grey, and allowing just the right amount of Chase to come out. You made Jane come alive.
I thank all of the cast members:
Lauren and Bradley Russel
and Yvonne Hodges
For giving of themselves so willingly. Also a big thank you to:
Sheridan and Bryce Macon
and Nate Switzer
For being the voices of the students in Chapter 25. I wish to thank Kelli Turner of Turner Talent for her willingness to post my casting call even though we never actually met. If it wasn’t for you Kelli, I would not have been able to even start.
I would also like to say thanks to:
Peter and Nicola Tyldesley
And those many many others to whom I have pitched Project Grey Noise, for their words of encouragement, and their kind advice.
Lastly, I extend my most humble and hearty thanks to the Lady Jane Grey herself. Lady Jane took great pains to write down her thoughts, at the last, so they could be published posthumously after she was executed. She took the time to carefully word them so they could be read and understood by those of us who came after her. I believe that she conceived them as pieces to be performed, and so now they are. Without her writings, my Project could not have come to fruition.
Thank you most heartily Jane.

"Thank you so much for your email. I'm sorry I haven't answered sooner, but I was away and then stuff got in the way and I couldn't get around to it. I've just reread it now, and I am so impressed with the research you've done into Jane and the sympathy you have for her. I found that I became more and more attached to her, the more I researched."
"Your project sounds interesting.
It would be nice to have information about the Lady Jane Grey properly put together. The idea is brilliant."
