What’s Next for Judge Frank Caprio?

Since announcing his completion of chemotherapy, Judge Caprio shared he has written a book.

“Final edits are being made now, and we hope to have it out by fall,” said Judge Caprio on Instagram.

From the looks of it, he was inspired to complete it after hearing the story of an 8-year-old author from Idaho.

Caprio was healthy enough to attend the 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards this year where he was nominated for Daytime Personality—Daily for the fourth year in a row. While he didn’t bring home the award, Caught in Providence didn’t go unnoticed as the show’s producer and SouthCoast native, John Methia, took home a trophy.

Needless to say, things are looking up for the beloved TV Judge. It seems like nothing will slow this man down.
