Quick Update

My novel, TRIPLINES, is back on track for a Spring 2014 publication. More details will follow soon. It’s my most autobiographical work, and was written while working in TV, so the process has taken longer than usual.

Speaking of TV, everything at Justified is moving along nicely. We’re in prep for the first episode, and will start shooting next week. It’s going to be a great season.

Thanks,

Leonard
