NEW YORK (AP) — Creative writing was Rick Springfield’s first love, and he’s returning to it with his debut novel.

A Tuesday news release says the musician and actor will release “Magnificent Vibration” in May 2014 under the Simon & Schuster imprint Touchstone.

Mr. Springfield is best known as the multiplatinum “Jessie’s Girl” singer and “General Hospital” star, but his memoir, “Late, Late at Night,” was a surprise New York Times best-seller. He said in the statement the experience “reminded me how much I love the craft.”

Mr. Springfield’s novel is about a tough-times protagonist who receives a 1-800 phone connection with God through a self-help book.

The novel comes during a busy period for the musician. He recently participated in Dave Grohl’s “Sound City” documentary and album and appeared on “Californication” and “Hawaii Five-O.”
