10-year-old author inspired by Russell Banks

From the Adirondack Daily Enterprise:

At 10 years old, Saranac Lake resident Justus Stewart is fulfilling his aspirations of becoming a writer.

Stewart published his first novel, “Kyle Oaks: The Fight for the Throne,” in December using an online publishing service, iUniverse.com.

The Petrova Elementary School fifth grader said he worked on the 52-page book for about year before trying to find a publisher.

Stewart said he wants to be a writer of some sort when he grows up, especially after having met his favorite author, Russell Banks, of Keene, who inspired him to write a book of his own.
