Throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, James Patterson has asserted himself as one of the most innovative and prolific writers of his time. During his three decade long career, Patterson has managed to carve out a dominant lane in literature by writing over two dozen books in his lifetime. In addition, Patterson has found his way into television and film by writing and producing scripts since the early 1990’s. As technology becomes the next frontier for entertainment and enjoyment, Patterson appears to be making his mark there as well.
The prolific writer has partnered with Facebook to release his next novel, The Chef, via Facebook Messenger. The novel will be formally published in February, but readers can begin reading the novel today through Messenger. Those interested in checking out the novel can search for the novel in the app and begin reading while interacting with videos and sound clips that tie into the story.
