Writer Statement

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.
