My new book Mormon Boy: A Memoir of Royalty and White Trash in America is currently being shopped by my agent in New York. I’ve been working on it for years! Fingers crossed.

FUTURE FILM & TV
The DVD of Confessions off Broadway is in the works. Excommunication scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwCXiL61fCI
Mormon Boy is an epic documentary film about a storyteller compelled to keep sharing his stories all over the world. You should see the footage we shot in Edinburgh and London!
And would you watch a web series called The Mormon Boy Cooking Show? Fashion, fitness, faith, and FOOD! It’s something up my sleeve like Mormon Boy jeans? “When you wear Mormon boy, you’re wearing the truth!”
Just for fun, the national “Ski Utah” commercial some of you might have recently seen! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FESd7TuQcXQ
It’s been a very challenging few years post-Recession. I’m moving back to NYC in July after two wonderful (and humbling) years being available to my kids in Utah. They are now basically all grown up and daddy is returning to the Big Apple a lot more sober and a whole lot wiser.
The one thing that has remained constant has been creating new work—and there are a lot more projects ahead that I will share later. (I’ve already gilded the lily!) Thank you for all your support as together we take things to the next level! I can’t do this alone. I’d love to hear from you!
