P G Sturges's picture

P G Sturges

USA flag (b.1953)

p.g.sturges was born in Hollywood, California. Early in life he was a good student and a poor pianist, culminating in an eighth grade performance of the Marines Hymn, the end of which he could not remember. However, loath to quit, he played many, many, many verses of the song until the audience, with an ovation, prevailed upon him to move on.

Punctuated by fitful interludes of school, he has subsequently occupied himself as a submarine sailor, a dimensional metrologist, a Christmas tree farmer, an optical metrologist, a musician, a songwriter, an author, a playright, and a screenwriter.

He is the grateful son of Preston Sturges, writer/director, and Sandy Sturges, actress, author, and Doctor of Jurisprudence
