About John

In the mid-1990s, while my brothers and I were feeding cattle on our family's ranch, my brother Chris suggested that we write a screenplay about two historical figures: our great-great-grandfather Isaac J. Sparks, who had received the ranch from the Mexican government in 1843, and Allen B. Light, Sparks's friend and hunting partner, and the first black resident of Santa Barbara, California. The result of that suggestion was "Sparks and Light," my first screenplay. Since then, I've continued to write screenplays and feed cattle on my family's ranch.

Unique traits: I can remember conversations, and I can catch things when they fall.
