John Scott G is a self-confessed scripturient. (That's someone with a passionate and burning desire to write. Or maybe it's someone who likes to have sex on top of bibles.)
As 'Gerald Laurence,' he has written the screenplay to
'Final Approach' (Trimark Pictures 1992), 'The Ego
Diet' (Oak Tree Press, 1987) and the novel 'One Bang-Up Job' (Berkley
Owner of Golosio Music Publishing, JSG has written songs with Merle Haggard, Jonny Harmonic, Scott Joss, Doug Colosio, Danielle Egnew, James Sotelo, DJ Insane, and others.
He writes for MuseWire and the California Newswire, both a part of the Neotrope Network. Speaking of Neotrope, here is the text of their bio for Herr G:
John Scott G is a self-confessed word nerd. For three decades, Mr. G has written advertising and public relations for some of the biggest, smallest, and in-betweenest companies in the English-speaking world. Yes, you can blame him for far too many TV commercials, radio commercials, print ads, brochures, press releases, speeches, ghost-written articles and books, and much too much online effluvium.
"I was a flack, a hack, a scribe, a scrivener, an ink-slinger and pixel-pusher for hire," he admits. "It was good training for a writer and had the fortunate result of keeping me under a roof and in proximity with sustenance." But today, JSG is a new person. "I am a new person!" he states. Oh wait, we covered that. Okay, he's an independent author: a reviewer of literature, a writer of social and political commentary, and the creator of long-form projects such as those quaint items called books.
Somewhere along the way, he wrote a number of plays, including "Partial Eclipse" (California Repertory Theater) and "White Light White Heat" (Open Fist Theater).
On the side, Mr. G is a partner in Golosio Publishing which creates and licenses music for songs, commercials, films, and TV. A related company, FookMovie, creates videos for recordings in the Golosio catalog (and which has created numerous semi-shocking videos to accompany certain chapters and characters in "Area Code 666").
