What advice to you have for other writers? Never stop writing. Never stop revising. Never forget that you‘re only writing in order to revise. Always be open and receptive to all notes, no matter what they are (especially the ones that hurt the most).
What are you working on right now? Adaptations of The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson, and The Land of Decoration by Grace McCleen. Also an original western called The Kid.
