Loren Woodson has written two screenplays and two novels. Since his childhood in a devout and searching Christian home both his grandfathers and an uncle were ministers he has been fascinated with the New Testament figures and their stories. Biblical scholarship and the insights of his wife, Joan Woodson, who is Jewish, broadened and deepened his perspective. Close relationships with his family, especially his warm and expressive mother, enriched his psychotherapy observations about parent-child interactions. These connections informed his creative consideration of the most compelling mother-son relationship in all of Western civilization. He has been a writer, an Army medical officer, and has a practice as a psychoanalytic therapist. He and his artist-wife, Joan Woodson, have two children, and a grandson. In addition to time with family, his practice and writing, he regularly plays trumpet and baritone horn. He resides in Southern California where he is at work on a novel about Jesus and his key disciples.
