Another Accolade!

McClain certainly can be proud of yet a new award to add to her impressive list of accomplishments. Her latest achievement is receiving the Matrix Award from the Association of Women in Communications, which she announced in a tweet. McClain was honored for her documentary, Seeing is Believing: Women Direct, which spotlights women directors in the film and television arenas. Two GH faves are featured in the film: Finola Hughes (Anna) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin) who are budding directors themselves.

She also is a blog author, has published books of poetry and has contributed articles to a variety of publications on a range of topics.
