San Francisco bay area native, Devon Franklin is an accomplished producer, best-selling author, renowned preacher and motivational speaker. Recently, Franklin visited Marcus Books in Oakland, CA to share the inspiration behind his latest literary work The Hollywood Commandments – A Spiritual Guide to Secular Success. In it, he presents ten fundamental commandments essential to building commercial success.
Franklin draws from his own twenty years of experience in the film industry to inspire readers to reach their ultimate professional and personal goals, often reiterating the importance of maintaining confidence in the decisions we make, posing the question: “How often do we live a life that has been altered by others who want us to do what they want us to do?”
Franklin also shares memories involving his equally famous counterpart and wife, actress Meagan Good, to illustrate how challenging it can be to remain self-motivated. He reveals that Good had to make major changes to her daily routine to build confidence in pursuing film roles outside of those typically presented. Subsequently, Good is slated to star in a television adaption of Foxy Brown in the lead role originally made famous by actress Pam Grier in 1974. The series is currently being developed by Hulu.
Though intended for faith-based audiences, Franklin believes anyone can benefit from the guiding principles in the book, urging, “Learn how to connect with your true purpose and experience unprecedented success at work and in life!”
The Hollywood Commandments: A Spiritual Guide To Secular Success by Devon Franklin is an entity of by HarperOne Publishers (an imprint of HarperCollins) in San Francisco, CA.
