Overview

When young Kevin Kramer arrives at Saber Bend University as an aspiring running back, he finds instant success and acceptance. Not only does he score a starting position on the university football team (a rare feat for a freshman), but he also makes an impression on the fraternity president who ultimately chooses him to be his youngest brother. All Kevin's dreams seem to be coming true, and at first life couldn't be better, but there is a dark side to fraternity life. Success or not, he is still just a freshman and he has a lot to learn about life, friendship,discipline, and fraternity.

Editorial Reviews

Mikey M.
What most appealed to me about Ms.Kerfoot's story was the feeling that this was not tossed off porn, but carefully crafted inter-relational exposition based on her convictions. The discipline scenes were scalding and inventive, never slipping into rote portrayals of good v evil. Never really becoming porn in it's true sense, and hence able to supply a kind of stealth erotica.

Meet the Author

Stephanie Joeline Kerfoot grew up in small town, NY, in the beautiful Hudson Valley. She attended high school there and graduated with a class of students she’d known since Kindergarten. She continued her education at Marlboro College, in the inspiring mountains of Vermont. It was there in that small community that she was instilled with a passion for literature. She came to intimately know, through the enthusiasm of her professors, the works of such great authors as Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot, and Thomas Hardy. Though she was exposed to many genres, it was the dark and morbid world of nineteenth century British Literature that most engaged her attention. Stefanie’s innate fascination with mystery, magic, secrecy, and the darker side of human nature in general was sparked early on by the fantastical elements of novels and short stories such as "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson, The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken, The Black Stallion by Walter Farley, The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, and The Never Ending Story by Michael Ende. This new world of nineteenth century authors served to nurture and augment this fascination. It was the allure of the macabre together with the powerful intimacy experienced in a small communal setting that led to the creation of the Fraternity Files. The experiences of the fraternity, Rho Beta Chi (Kigh), draw upon the lifelong friendships Stephanie made at Marlboro and the nostalgia associated with the remembrance of her carefree days there. While the events themselves are not in any way based on real life experience, the intensity of emotion is something that inevitably entangles young college students as they struggle to balance social life with academia, and strive to come to grips with new, more mature identities.
