Having won a Participation Certificate for his submission to the Kenniwick Middle School short story contest in the seventh grade, John Scott G “caught word nerd fever” and has been scribbling prose ever since.
Mr. G is a self-confessed abuser of adjectives and doesn’t seem too terribly upset about it.
His screen saver reads: “To write is to live.”
He has written songs with Merle Haggard, Jonny Harmonic, Scott Joss, Doug Colosio, Danielle Egnew, James Sotelo, DJ Insane, and others.
Under the pen name ‘Gerald Laurence,’ he wrote the screenplay to Final Approach (Trimark Pictures 1992), the self-help book The Ego Diet (Oak Tree Press, 1987) and the novel One Bang-Up Job (Berkley Books, 1989).
He is currently a full-time author living a secret life somewhere in the Southern California area.
