Voris is relatively new to the world of publishing with six books and working on his seventh. He states, “I’ve had these stories rattling around in my head for as long as I can remember. I finally decided to let the characters ‘out’, so it was really them that told me their story. I just wrote it down.” The major attribute of all his stories is the manner in which he tickles your mind and gets you to think.
