Since publishing my memoir, "Now that I've Told You All That Would You?", which takes an unflinching look at family, relationships, the church and unconditional love, I have been very busy in my management consulting company, PS Focus. In 2011, I decided to get involved in short films again, but I really didn't have an exact plan. In early 2012, my brother Harrell D. Williams, Sr. announced to me that he was going to film a short and wanted me to play one of the lead roles. Well... October of 2012, we made it to Hollywood at the Hollywood Black Film Festival where the short, They Lost It, was selected for screening.
