About Us

John Wayne Speaks: The Ultimate John Wayne Quote Book is scheduled to be published in Fall 2021 by St. Martin's Press. The book, a major work of meticulous research, was compiled, edited, and written by Mark Orwoll, a veteran journalist. Orwoll also oversees the prodigious staff of the John Wayne Speaks blog, where we provide insights into John Wayne—the actor and his films—as well as interesting notes on Hollywood history and profiles of Wayne’s many fascinating co-stars.
