What can you tell us about your new release, Lies Behind The Woods?
Lies behind the woods is a Psychological thriller about a college professor on vacation that gets his life turned upside down by an unexpected event. Each decision he makes turns to life changing events that he never expected. This book is an easy fun read as a prequel to Steve Breiten’s life as he discovers what really lies behind the woods.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
I have been writing since the age of nine. I was diagnosed with a benign face tumor that kept me from talking for a year. The only way to communicate to the world was writing. It became a passion and a way to express myself through creativity that I enjoy now as a young adult.
What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?
I remember when I was in the fifth grade and I had to do my first book report. The first book I ever read by myself was James and the Giant Peach. Today that book is still my top favorite. I also like 1984. I read that in school and thought it was very intriguing that it was easy for me to understand the Psychologicalbizarre concept the author was delivering. Of mice and Men has to be in my top. After those three, You can pick many of Stephen King novels and put them right there. I am a fan of his writing style.

I live a remarkably busy lifestyle I am the father of five kids and work fulltime, as well. But whenever possible during my quite times I escape to writing and creating.

I love the piecing of all the little breadcrumbs that lead to the final plot reveal and I try to imagine a rollercoaster feeling.
