As a child, KALEB NATION had to be forced by his mother to write one page a week in creative writing. But by the time he finished his first story, no one could make him to stop. Age twelve, Kaleb promptly telephoned the senior editor of a major publisher to pitch the book… and got to talk with security instead.
But as with most writers, not even that could stifle his dream. On the third night of the third month in 2003, age 14, Kaleb had a sudden idea that began the story of Bran Hambric, a novel which would take most of his teenage years to write. In early 2007, Kaleb finished the first book in his series (Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse) which was published on 9/9/09. Kaleb later announced the forthcoming sequel (Bran Hambric: The Specter Key), in stores on 10/10/10.
Aside from writing, Kaleb hosted his first radio show in Texas at age 13, later launching his own program from 2006 – 2008 called The Top 5. Kaleb’s show grew to be broadcast on AM, FM, Internet and satellite radio stations across the globe, before Kaleb left to focus on writing.
In mid-2008, Kaleb launched a second blog at TwilightGuy.com, giving chapter-by-chapter insight from a guy and writer’s perspective on reading the Twilight Saga, a series of popular novels. The website went on to receive millions of hits and was featured in BusinessWeek and Entertainment Weekly magazines, as well as on MTV, ReelzChannel and other TV outlets. Kaleb also began posting regular videos on his Youtube channel (and its companion channel in late 2009), with over 22 million plays.
In his free time, Kaleb enjoys photography, music and blogging at his website KalebNation.com. A homeschool graduate and a black belt in taekwondo, he currently lives in Arizona and turned 22 in 2010. 1
