Anne Rice? Edit

Is there any proof that Jeanna F. Gallo is a pseudonym for Anne Rice?

A quote from the Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion:

"Countering some reports, though, [Jeri] Taylor said the story and its roots in fan Jeanna Gallo's year-old spec script was a nod to The Innocents, the film version of Henry James' Turn of the Screw – Braga's all-time favorite – and not the Scottish succubus Lasher of Ann Rice's The Witching Hour...Gallo's Scot-based world focused on Beverly and her living grandmother, with aliens who had posessed humans for centuries as an explanation of paranormal activity..."

In addition, on IMDB, there is a comment, allegedly by Gallo:

"Someone has altered my sole IMDb credit on this episode until I (Jeanna F. Gallo) appear as a pseudonym for Anne Rice. I am not Anne Rice and I alone sold the story that became this episode, "Sub Rosa." None of us, myself, Jeri Taylor, or Brannon Braga had ever even read Anne Rice prior to this episode being made, any resemblance to one of her stories that allowed some 'imaginative' Trek fan to assume that she must have played a hand in its production is entirely coincidental."

It appears that the original stub article (with the pseudonym claim) was created in March of 2006 by an anon contributor, with no proof to back up the claim. We've just continued to elaborate on that ever since. -- Renegade54 13:27, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
I have stripped the article down to what we actually can verify - i.e. all Anne Rice stuff has been removed. -- Michael Warren | Talk 14:49, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Removed Edit

Jeanna F. Gallo is a pseudonym for Anne Rice (born 4 October 1941; age 74), author of The Witching Hour, source material for the TNG episode "Sub Rosa", for which she received partial writing credit.

Anne Rice is a bestselling author, most famous for her The Vampire Chronicles series of novels. "Jeanna F. Gallo" is but one of a number of pseudonyms Rice has used in her writing. Her other pen names include Anne Rampling and A.N. Roquelaure.

Film and television adaptations have been made of a number of other Anne Rice works. These include the films Exit to Eden (starring Iman) and Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (starring Christian Slater and Kirsten Dunst).
