Steve Burt's writing career took a sharp turn in 1991 thanks to a snowstorm that stranded him at an airport. Already well known for his nonfiction books, Steve needed a book to pass the time, so he picked up a horror collection at the airport bookstore. As a teen he had always loved mysteries and dark fiction. He devoured the book and began reading everything he could find in the rediscovered genres. Three years later he began writing weird tales and mysteries. His first 8 stories earned honorable mentions in Year's Best Fantasy & Horror.

An Adventure that's Out of this World. And In It. Free Camp, which somehow became known as FreeK Camp, is for special kids. But just how special most people will never know. Two vans are on their way to the camp in rural Maine, the teen passengers just starting to get acquainted. One van makes it. The other mysteriously disappears. Now each group of kids must bond together to discover and use their paranormal and psychic powers. The lives of one group literally depend on it.

Part mystery thriller, part detective story, part sci-fi, FreeK Camp is all hold-your-breath-I-didn't-see-that-coming adventure. Named 2010 and 2011 Beach Book of the Year. For adults, teens, tweens. The second book in the series, FreeK Show: Where Nothing Is as It Appears, appeared on May 15, 2012.

Freek Camp is available on Amazon.
