More About the Author

Hello All! Thank you so much for visiting my author page. I love hearing from readers so please feel free to contact me either on my facebook page or twitter with any questions or comments.

I live in the suburbs of New York with my lovely wife and two amazing children. I began writing creatively as a teenager and have been fortunate enough to have written and produced several successful plays and musicals in the NY area. I earned my B.A. and M.S. from Dowling College. Currently, I'm a professional musician on the weekends and an author during the week.

The Stritonoly Chronicles is probably my favorite work so far. They begin with the book, "The Eye of the Storm." I like the fact that these books do not comfortably fit into one particular genre. The trilogy is not at all a typical sci-fi/fantasy.

My hope is to have a new novel out before the end of the summer. I am working on a mystery/thriller and I am having a blast with it!

HAPPY READING!

I will disclose that I heard this author asking for reviews in the discussion boards so I looked him up. I read the reviews on his short story, and since the price was nearly free, I decided to download it on my Kindle and have a look. There's nothing better than being the first to discover a new talent, and I'm glad I discovered William L.K.

His work is suspenseful,and he gives you engaging characters and a surprising ending. I found it intriguing to imagine how it would be to completely lose all memory, to be left wondering who you are, and what you might have done in your life. Being a short story, the author didn't have time to explore that aspect of his characters. If his story were to be expanded, that would be a very interesting angle to explore.

I don't usually read short stories because once I get into a character, I don't like them to leave too soon. This story could be stretched out giving the reader more time with the compelling characters L.K. has created. I read that he's writing another book and I will keep my eye out for it.

There are a lot of apocalyptic books on the market and as 2012 draws nearer, I'm sure the number will increase. L.K. might want to consider lengthening his book to cash in on the trend. I won't say who the voice is, but as a reader, I would have loved to know more about that particular person/group. Not much is mentioned in the novella about him/them.

so based on the previous reviews, I went into this story with an open mind. The concept and execution was very interesting and I didn't see the end coming -- and how rare is that?! I would recommend this story to others and will read it again, myself.

"The Voice" sets the scene in the prologue with, as the description says, a man floating offshore with his mind a blank. The main portion of the book takes us back three days to the events leading up to the prologue and continues with what happens afterward. As we see events through the eyes of the narrator, what happens and what it means are gradually revealed to both him and us. The story is fast moving, yet satisfying in that it keeps you in suspense and guessing, trying to unravel what has happened. Saying much more will only turn this review into a spoiler. A short, yet still very satisfying read.

The bonus short stories are horror rather than sci-fi. The first, "Shotgun," is short, but with a wicked twist. Both are fun reads.

I first read this short story back in 2010 when it was published as a single story. I noticed a new edition with two additional short stories included, and decided to read it again.

The prologue piques your interest about what caused the annihilation, who the survivors are, and why they've forgotten their identities.

The chapters take you back and forth between the happenings at John and Marie's Fourth of July party and the experiences of the survivors as they begin to follow the voice. This back and forth kept me feeling as confused as the characters did, while they try to figure out what had happened. As the voice guides them, you are kept in suspense as the truth is slowly revealed to the characters and the reader. I enjoyed the twists, turns, and surprises as the author developed the story. I sat and thought about the ending, then read the story again. I enjoyed it even more that time. It would be interesting to see the story continue and what comes next for these characters.

Shotgun is set in a future time. The plot is tense, and may be difficult for some to read, due to similar events in our current time. It was short, but had a good twist ending.

In Stromboli High, Gabriel and Anthony are sitting by the lake... as Gabriel rolls a joint for Anthony... not the usual kind of joint... a joint with consequences attached. Anthony awakes confused at his job; not understanding how he got there. He chalks it up to black outs, but does not feel high. The fear from what he sees in his Uncle Gino's Music Store and Pizzeria horrifies him. It may sound strange to say, but seeing how Anthony comes to "learn his lesson" made me giggle.

The three stories in this book are all different, make you think, horrify you, and can make you smile--an enjoyable way to spend the day.

I like fiction that entertains, but I love fiction that makes me think. The Voice is a futuristic sci-fi that did just that.

The author's clever use of construction only made the reading experience better, in my opinion. I was forced to sit back and allow William L.K. to take me on this journey of his creation. I'm happy to say that the destination is satisfying, indeed.

Loving my Kindle all along, and even more now for introducing me to William L.K.! After essentially just browsing, I stumbled on a review of this story and for that I am greatful. For someone who commutes everyday, this was a no brainer. The story is clear, the character are fun yet the tone is very mysterious. Someone else who reviewed this made a reference that William L.K. perhaps taps into a similar tone equal to Steven King's early works.

For the train ride I had no expectations - but man, it well surpassed what I was thinking! I was sorry when it ended so quickly but I too was surprised by the ending...which really made it special for me!

I recommend this to anyone who loves sci-fi...maybe even a little scare in their reading! :)

ALSO stoked that I just did a web search and saw that William L.K. has a new story coming out on Dec 11th!? The Eye Of The Storm! Check out this link to the teaser at [...]

Bravo WLK!! Keep em' coming!
