A Little about the Author......

Add one part action, one part romance, throw in a little mystery, and stir to get Truman J. Beaver.

          Considered a rising force in the literary world, he was born with a lifelong passion for writing, and thirst for adventure.  His compelling novels will feed the intellect while nourishing the soul with thrills, and excitement! Each edge of your seat tale takes you on a phenomenal reading experience.

          Most would say he has a flair for the dramatic; some even refer to him as the reincarnate of the great showman P.T. Barnum. Truman started his first business at sixteen, and kept going. He grew up in a sleepy Midwest town, then attended College at Indiana University.

          Truman’s true education came from being a survivor. As an infant, he was severely burned in a house explosion but, after spending his childhood recovering, he learned never to let anything stand in his way, no matter what the goal. He also learned that you should always have fun doing it.

          His career path has taken him from behind the microphone as a radio DJ, to corporate America, and back to the farm, still leaving him feeling restless to fulfill his true passion of writing.

          Truman loved to make up tall tales as a boy. Not as a lie mind you, just for fun. He enjoyed gathering friends and family around to regale them with a story. To see that look of intrigue on their faces was fulfilling. Then as he was learning to write, he was hit with a compelling experience that told him he was meant to be a writer.

          One night during the summer of Truman’s eighth year, his mother rushed into his bedroom, drug him from a sound sleep, and had him follow her to the basement. After he woke up a bit, it became clear that they were having a bad storm. From the small rectangular window, he could see the lightning flash, and the wind-driven rain pelt the glass.

          Inside, he never felt fear, just wonder. He moved closer, watching as power lines arced and trees fell, then he saw it. Gobbling up everything it its path was the black twisting mass of a tornado. The world around him stopped, and he just stood still, absorbing every detail from that moment.

          When it was over he rushed to his room and put the experience to paper. From then on, writing filled every corner of his being, he was hooked for life.

          At twenty-eight he sat down, determined to write his first book, quickly realizing that he wasn’t ready yet. Life had not honed him enough, so he started over.

          Ten years later he awoke in the middle of the night with an idea. So, he started to research, and learn. After a lot of work he finally had it.

          Truman invites you to join him, as he leads you on the many great literary adventures that lay ahead.

          Truman lives in Indiana with his lovely wife, and German Shepherd/literary assistant, Athena. When he is not writing he divides his time between working, traveling, reading and curling up on the couch with his family for a cozy movie night.
