Pinched is a gripping novel based on the electrifying true story of Marco, a poor adolescent Colombian fishermen who dreams of wealth, yet those ambitions result in his forced servitude to a ruthlessly violent Narco Para-military organization who operate at the height of Colombia’s war torn, drug fueled civil war.       

Wilson C Carter III was born in Boca Raton, FL and spent his childhood summers with his family in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He is 24 years old and an avid Miami Dolphins fan. Following his graduation from Florida State University and inspired to change the world, he volunteered in public schools as an English teacher in Barranquilla Colombia. One day, while exploring the beaches of Colombia, he, by chance, befriended Marco, a former Drug transporter for the A.U.C, a Narco Para-military organization. Marco's story was so awe inspiring that Wilson, with Marco's permission, wrote the novel Pinched. Wilson currently lives in Tallahassee, FL and is pursuing his Masters degree in Marketing from Florida State University. Wilson and Marco remain great friends.
