    Thriller Author Rob Kaufman

    in Business

    Topic: Fitting Into Your Genre


    As a child, Rob Kaufman was always fascinated by the stories recited by those around him and the words used to tell them. As he got older, his need to tell his own stories grew, as did his ability to share them in exciting and captivating ways. However, he wanted to share more than just stories. His primary desire was to create characters with whom people could relate, while at the same time bringing them through a journey from which most would crumble.


    His degree in Psychology was the first step toward getting beneath the surface of the people in his life. What followed was a lifelong search for what makes people tick - what forces them to become evil when deep down in their heart of hearts, they are yearning for love. Rob's characters walk this search with him, deep into the human psyche, creating psychological thrillers from every day events.


    Rob's first book "In the Shadow of Stone" continues to receive great praise and is selling well in both electronic and paperback formats. His current book, "One Last Lie" is much darker than his first, with characters who hold bits and pieces of strangers he's known, friends he's had and lunatics he's only read about.


    "This book hits home for me," says Rob, who has been with his partner for 25 years. "There were a few pages that made me laugh out loud as I wrote them... and many that made me cry. And the great thing is, I'm finding that many readers of this book are experiencing the same emotions."


    Through social and other media, Rob hopes to get "One Last Lie" into the hands of millions, so that they, too, can experience the ups, downs, twists, turns and final tragedy that has helped make this book a Five-Star contender.
