Michael Koryta has spent his summer in Maine working on his next novel. He's been writing in a small building in a backyard where there are few distractions.
Koryta grew up in Indiana but he loves Maine. He fell in love with a girl from Lyman, got married in Kennebunkport and honeymooned in Camden.
He is a rising star in the world of thrillers. Stephen King called him a "master."
Koryta was boosted in his writing career by joining up with a private investigation firm before he could even drive. And he sold his first book at age 20.
