Kekoa Lake values ideas and loves a fight. That might explain his affection for crime dramas and thriller movies.
Graduating from the University of Hawai'i at Manoa in 1991, the Honolulu native worked as the director of production for a local television station. As a hired writer, he has slogged away at draft legislation, project finance, magazine copy and film scripts. As a filmmaker, Lake has worked on indie documentaries and short films. His own film, THE MEAL (1998), enjoyed screenings at various film festivals in Hawai'i and in the South Pacific.
In 2009, Lake wrote and published The Twentyfirsters, the first in a series of three novels and fifteen novellas. This collection of thrillers follows the anguished existence of people cursed with unusual abilities. Foremost among them is Bon Carriker, the ex-federal agent who is blamed for killing a team of beloved superhumans. All the things that major publishers can't do to their cash cows (*cough* Batman *cough-cough* X-Men *cough*), Lake's going to do to the Twentyfirsters.
Kekoa Lake lives in Hilo, Hawai'i, the home of the Merrie Monarch Hula Festival and the favored training destination of American mixed martial arts fighters. Go figure.
