“We’ve already set the date and the book is currently being written. My editors are working hard on it, and I think it’s going to be a fantastic finale to the series,” said Wilson.

Upcoming events for Wilson include attending the The Capital City Author Event in Montgomery, AL on May 21, 2022. Wilson said he is excited for the event as it will allow him to put his name out there, and meet new authors.
