Nathan Shelton says it took him about six to seven months to write his book: "The Mystery of Cambria".
The story is set in the quiet central coast town of Cambria. And the Clovis East sophomore says it's a murder mystery aimed at young adults.
His book hit store shelves and online shops earlier this month.
"The first pages are rough and then you start getting into it so it gets easier along the way," said Shelton. "It's time consuming. You got to think of the characters names, how can I carry this on for so long."
Shelton says he has two more sequels he would like to see get published. As for his career goals, Nathan says his real passion is acting.
