In the Booth with Ruth – Josh Evans, Author, Screenwriter, Filmmaker & Actor

Josh Evans

What’s your writing background? When did you begin writing and what inspired you? 

I started writing when I was eight years old. I started with poetry and then after spending several years as an actor wrote a screenplay that I turned into a movie called Inside the Goldmine.

I try to do one original piece a year. I like to absorb as much as I can, reading non-fiction and observing life is my biggest inspiration. 

How often do you write? And how do you manage to fit in writing among other commitments? 

When I’m writing I write in the mornings when my head is the most clear and I feel the best – if I’m able to write a page a day for ninety days I know that it will bring me something interesting. Doing it like this requires a lot of patience and faith but it’s the best way for me.

In which genre do you most enjoy writing? 

I’ve written a lot of biographies for the screen: Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley, Tupac Shakur and Che Guevara. The Che Guevara screenplay became a film that I directed. But as a new novelist, I’ve found that I am compelled to write fiction – it’s liberating to be able to finally write thoughts instead of having to show them as visuals. Thus far, writing books has been extremely rewarding in an artistic sense and I look forward to writing more.

Can you tell me about your current project(s)?

My novella is called Gold Star. I wanted to write a story about music that was based on characters that I created in my imagination, instead of relying on autobiographies of famous musicians from the past. I wanted to draw on all of the elements that I have learned from real icons and make up my own icons.

What are your writing plans for the future?

I’m almost done with a second novella – it’s very different from Gold Star. It’s a love story that deals with immortality and the apocalypse. 

Josh Evans’s novella Gold Star is available on Amazon US here and Amazon UK here.

        I would like to enlist your help with something if you believe you are

        interested and can help a just cause. I am working with

        freetheirp6.org and a-justcause.com, 2 organizations involved with

        fighting a legal injustice done to 6 businessmen from Colorado. These

        6 businessmen have been tried, convicted and imprisoned all because

        they invented a software program the federal government and the

        “big boys”, such as IBM, wanted. These 6 businessmen are now in

        prison, snatched from family and their lives, for being brilliant and

        following their American dream.

        I am asking you to blog about this injustice done these 6 men. This

        subject may be off topic from what you normally blog about. The

        reality is this could happen yo you, me and anyone who stands up to

        the United States Government and our corrupt judicial system. No

        One Is Safe.

        I have written a series of 3 post about this case found here:

        http://theobamacrat.com/2013/05/18/free-the-irp-6-this-could-

        happen-to-you/

        I am asking that if you agree with this cause please use all or part of

        this 3 blog post series. I’m not interested in you using my name, using

        the name of TheObamaCrat™ or linking back to my blog. This is not

        about personal recognition but about freeing these 6 men. PLEASE

        feel free to copy & paste what you need from my blog post or from

        the Free The 6 web site located here: freetheirp6.org. You can find

        links to the original articles I used in my initial post here:

        freetheirp6.org. The web site spearheading this project to free these

        6 men is : a-justcause.com.

        I thank you in advance for whatever help you can give us. If you decide this is not your fight or that it is outside the scope of your blog, I fully understand.
        No hard feelings & ♥ ❀ ✿ Namaste ❀ ✿ ♥

        #FreeTheIRP6

        Thank You.
