T.W. Lawrence grew up in Texas. His father practiced veterinary
medicine and his mother taught nursing. He and his sister were
raised in a family that valued the origin and meaning of words.
Lawrence majored in English in college and earned a
Masters of Arts degree in Professional Writing. He has published
frequent freelance magazine articles. His poetry, short stories,
and screenplays have won multiple awards. Lawrence is also a chaplain for "Cowboys For Christ" throughout the country and attends events for the organization throughout the southeast.
Bradley Hawkins is best known as the award-winning director and co-writer of the short films Calf Rope, Filling In, and Roller Coaster. He is also the co-founder of the family-friendly film production company, Dadley Productions which produced all three films, and is the co-writer on the faith-based screenplay, Wrangled, as well as on the feature-length screenplay adaptation of Calf Rope into a feature-length screenplay, along with other completed screenplays in the queue for development.
When T.W. Lawrence's western novel, "The Trail Ends in Texas" was first brought to my attention, before the end of the third chapter, I was fully committed to helping the author adapt it into a feature-length, faith-based western that I believe has the potential of being a thrilling yet deeply moving family-friendly film. I love how Wrangled reads like a western mash-up of Pilgrim's Progress, Unforgiven, and Jeremiah Johnson.
