"I have a wife of 30 years. On September 24, it will be 31 years. My wife and I knew each other less than two months before she became my wife. I have six children, four boys and two girls. I'm blessed to have people who love me."
What are your three favorite things?
Writing screenplays, shooting pool and spending time with my wife and kids.
What is the last thing you do before you go to sleep?
I give my wife a good-night kiss; that's after I pray.
What is your hidden talent?
God blessed me with talent to set my heart on doing something, and I can do it. Not just do it, but do it and be good at it.
What are you obsessed with?
What are you particularly bad at that your friends tease you about?
I may be bad at my English, but I'm working on that as I speak. Someone is reading my screenplay in spite of my grammar, which means that they have to be very good.
Who is your hero?
Oprah! I love how she didn't take no for an answer. It reminds me a lot of myself. If you tell me that I can't do it, it makes me want to do it that much more.
