Curtain Speech is actually the thing that someone will come out and say, “please turn off your cellphones, here are the exits and thank you for coming.” It’s the title I came up with and I don’t have an exact date when it will be coming out, but it might be available for pre-order on Amazon now – I can check with my publisher. AM: What other projects do you have coming out that you can tell us about? EA: Well, I will be in Season 7 of Chicago Fire! Other than that, I am working on writing a series like many an actor is.
