This weekend is Father’s Day and among those who will be celebrating is Los Angeles writer and dad John August. August wrote the films Go and Charlie’s Angels and he blogs about writing on his Web site, JohnAugust.com.

He recently wrote a short story called "The Variant." And as he tells KPCC's Alex Cohen, he got a lot of help from his fans on Twitter.
