Tyler Baltierra just released his first memoir, Conquering Chaos, with his fiancé Catelynn Lowell. But the reality star exclusively tells RadarOnline.com that he's already working on another book!

"I'm writing a novel right now about a heroin addict, a girl," Baltierra reveals. "That's my next project."

The 23-year-old certainly has plenty of real-life experiences to inspire his fictional tale. In Conquering Chaos, Baltierra shares about growing up with his drug addict father, Butch, in a dysfunctional household, and also reveals he overdosed while huffing air duster as a teen. (He was also so troubled in his early years, he tried to commit suicide, he exclusively told Radar earlier this week.)

"I enjoy writing," he says. "It's one of my favorite things to do. I like to be creative."

But the busy motivational speaker and adoption advocate says he doesn't have a deadline, or even a book deal in place at this time.

"I don't have a set plan," he admits. "I don't want to be pressured to finish it. I want to write freely and at my own pace."

Though the couple often teams up for work projects, fans shouldn't expect a second book from Lowell, 23, the mother of Baltierra's daughters Carly, 5, and Novalee Reign, 2 months.

"Maybe in the future when I have my degree," she shrugs. "But writing is not my favorite!"
