He's a singer. He's a soap star. Now Rick Springfield is hoping to become a bestselling novelist!
On Tuesday, the General Hospital alum revealed he is set to publish his debut novel, Magnificent Vibration, in May 2014. The tome "portrays a hero who has hit a dead end in his life, but who serendipitously receives a 1-800 phone connection to God via an inscription in a mysterious self-help book that may just give him a shot at saving the planet."
Now you can talk to God with a 1-800 number? Psychics are gonna unionize!
"The only good grades I ever got in school before I was kicked out were for creative writing," said Springfield. "I thought that fiction might be in my future but then my career took a different path once the Beatles showed me what a blast being in a band could be. Writing my memoir Late, Late at Nightreminded me how much I love the craft. So I decided to give fiction a shot again. Magnificent Vibration is the result. I’m still not quite sure where it came from, but once I got going, it practically wrote itself. I’ve heard writers I admire speak of that phenomenon, so maybe I’m on the right track."
