A resident New Yorker, Kelter often uses Manhattan and Long Island as backdrops for his stories. He has written three novels featuring street savvy NYPD Detective Stephanie Chalice: DON'T CLOSE YOUR EYES, RANSOM BEACH, and THE BRAIN VAULT.
BookWire Review wrote of the character Stephanie Chalice, "her acerbic repartee is like an arsenal of nuclear missiles."
Early in his writing career he received support from bestselling novelist, Nelson DeMille, who reviewed his work and actually put pencil to paper to assist in the editing of the first novel. DeMille said, "Lawrence Kelter is an exciting new novelist who reminds me of an early Robert Ludlum."
His novels are quickly paced and routinely feature a twist ending. For more information please visit the author at: lawrencekelter.com.
