Each week, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week young adult author Caleb J. Boyer will be taking over our Twitter account.
Caleb J. Boyer is an Award Winning #1 International Bestselling Author. He has been featured on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, and in Times Square. At twelve years old, he wrote his first full-length novel, Island Games, an adventure story about two best friends who, with no memories of their past, must survive the challenges the mysterious island throws at them.
Caleb was born in Fargo, North Dakota. He became an avid reader at the very young age of four after a family tragedy had him traveling hours every day for several years. To fill the time, Caleb read every book he could get his hands on, and as a result, he developed speed reading skills so that he could read even more books. His passion for books grew to the point where he started creating his own stories. By the age of ten, he wanted to write a book in which he could incorporate the things the other books had not been able to give him. The result was the first in a series of adventure books, Island Games.
Caleb founded Read-Write, LLC, a company dedicated to instilling youth around the world with a passion for reading, writing, and entrepreneurship. The non-profit division of Read-Write, LLC donates books to children’s hospitals so that children can have adventurous escapes as they are working to overcome their own challenges and obstacles related to their medical conditions.
