He has recently published his first novel.  The novel is called The Butterfly Decision.  The book is fiction, and although it is a tale of fiction, it was based on his life during his training and performing as a professional dancer.

The synopsis of the book is as follows:

"Leaping headlong into the world of ballet, with dreams of becoming a professional dancer, a young boy from the Panhandle of Texas uses his grit, gifts, ambition and determination to face every obstacle and challenge he encounters on his path to be a professional.  In this fictionalized account, he finds his passions lead to setbacks, success, love and the discovery of his true talent.  Most of all, he has to make a decision - the decision that will make all the difference."
