For The Method Writers, Jeff created a disturbed, desperate, and down-on-his luck writer by the name of David Haas:
Struggling author David Haas is haunted by his former life as a big-time New York magazine editor and fiancé to a gorgeous runway model. Now in his early thirties, David, with no job, no fiancée, and very little means, is living in Florida to help care of his ailing mother. He has fallen in love with his sexy neighbor, Maria, loathes her abusive boyfriend, Franco, and depends on his ambitious writers group, The Rogues Gallery Writers, to keep him from losing his mind.
Needing inspiration for the vigilante Kenny Black, the lead character of his stalled novel Fade to Black, David devises a plan that is either a spark of genius….or sheer insanity.
