Currently, I am working on writing several other novels.I play guitar, piano, and harmonica; sing; and write my own music and lyrics. I plan on releasing my debut album in the near future, and this will be available on iTunes for download.I am also an avid filmmaker and screenwriter, and am currently working on writing a screenplay, which I will act in, produce, and direct.
