“I always thought about writing a book. I actually wanted to write a screenplay,” he explains, crediting Spring Breakers director Harmony Korine with encouraging him to try his hand at writing a film script. “While I was in prison my friend Harmony Korine was sending me books and telling me to write a screenplay. Then one day, my engineer told me that I should write a book.”
