Lawrence Kelter is the author of several novels including the International best-selling Stephanie Chalice Thriller Series and a series of comic legal thrillers based on the film My Cousin Vinny. He received early support in his writing career from literary icon Nelson DeMille, who reviewed his first novel and assisted with the editing. Way before DeMille ever said, "Lawrence Kelter is an exciting new novelist, who reminds me of an early Robert Ludlum," he told him, "Kid, your work needs editing, but that's a hell of a lot better than not having talent. Keep it up!" His novels are quickly paced and crammed full of twists, turns, and laughs.
