Biography: 

John Wayne S. III (JW) is a storyteller, film-maker, producer, and director of the critically acclaimed indie film Red All Over. Over his two decades-long career, JW has built a solid foundation of trust and expertise, thanks to his experience in multiple aspects of both the film and music industries. JW’s fiercely unique work draws the audience into the realistically hard-hitting worlds of film, music, and television.

JW’s remarkable career in production and film began as a production assistant for director George Tillman Jr’s (Soul Food and Men of Honor) first feature length film, Scenes for the Soul. When production of the film wrapped, JW then explored the music industry with Grammy-nominated producer Steve “Silk” Hurley, and eventually became Director of International A&R, supervising agents in both the UK and Japan.

Encouraged by his growing knowledge and intimacy with production and publicity, JW joined forces with director DA Bullock to produce music videos. Shortly after that JW started JWS Productions. Since its inception, JW has produced over 200 music videos, 70 commercials, and a variety of media projects with BET and The Colours Network, respectively, to develop programming.

Ten years later, JW became President and General Manager of DL Records, where he guided the label’s trajectory and helped propel its artists into mainstream media. JW’s time with DL Records generated the hit single, “We Don’t Play Dat”, which was produced by Lil John and featured Bun B of UGK.

Content with his successes in the music industry but longing for more, JW was eager to return to the frontier of documentary and feature films. He started Londyn Town Pictures in 2009 to produce Last Step Before Reality, a documentary that followed 6 young adults, aged 18-20, attending an alternative school. For several years after finishing this project, JW searched for the right opportunity to pursue for his first feature before choosing the prolific script for Red All Over, which highlights the ever-growing aspect of gun violence and its consequences from an alternative point of view.

Aside from JW’s film directorial debut with Red All Over, he continues to produce and direct several other film and TV projects. When JW isn’t immersed in the world of independent cinema, he enjoys cycling, cooking, reading sci-fi mysteries, and spending quality time with his daughter, Londyn, in their Houston, Texas home.

Biography: 

In the summer of 2012, one man was introduced to the idea of our nation’s Gold Star Families in a very personal way.

Since that day, that one man has worked tirelessly to find a means and method to do anything to promote the honor of any Gold Star Family in the United States; even if it meant going to another country.

Born the ninth child in a family of thirteen, Anthony Price has never had it easy. That may have been the ingredient needed to live out this story.

Yours, Very Sincerely and Respectfully is that story. Taking the closing line from Abraham Lincoln’s famous Bixby Letter, the title encapsulates the message in five words better than any other description.

The story laid out in this book tells everything. It tells you how it began. It tells you why Gold Star Families are important. It details the pitfalls of starting a charity, raising money, and the dangers of Riding a motorcycle nearly twenty thousand miles to get the mission accomplished.

The story explains how someone with a dream, passion, and maybe an insane amount of stubbornness will win the day. Persistence will bring ideas to light more than any other ingredient.

Biography: 

I earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Southern California in international relations and communications with a minor in the Study of Women and Men in Society. I earned my law degree from the American University, Washington, D.C. I also took coursework in International Service there. More recently, I earned a certificate in Education for Ministry from the School of Theology at the University of the South. 

I've had experiences of the supernatural throughout my life. I grew up in the Church, but like many people, I left it when I was a young adult. I made my education a spiritual pursuit, and I spent Sundays playing baseball. Eventually, my mystical experiences led me to study mediumship and psychic development. When ghost hunting shows became popular, I decided to join a paranormal investigation team. I found that we get the same types of evidence they do on the shows. I had a number of experiences and I've written and spoken about them.

When I returned from law school in the early 2000s, my father asked me to attend events at Claremont School of Theology. It was there that I discovered progressive Christianity. I began writing biblical commentaries in order to provide clergy and ministers with a progressive message to preach and teach on Sundays.  Over time, my blog became the place for all my writing.  

I have been writing political opinion articles since my days at the Daily Trojan, USC's student newspaper. I also wrote a couple articles for the Los Angeles Daily Journal, Los Angeles' legal newspaper. As a part of my writing requirement in law school, I co-authored a textbook on comparative foreign law and social sciences titled "Social Issues in Global Perspective: Pornography." 

I currently write about progressive Christianity, New Age spirituality, religion, politics, and the paranormal at ModernLectionaries.blogspot.com. I also write about religion and politics for LAProgressive.com. I produce a podcast here on BBS Radio called "Bible Study for Progressives." It is a show where moderate, liberals, and leftists of all faiths and ideologies come together to discuss scripture, spirituality, and politics.
