About the Author

Author Info

Akiva Hersh’s novel BOY IN THE HOLE is being released in October the week of National Coming Out Day.

Akiva has degrees in Neurolinguistics and Theology and a background in training agents in the CIA, FBI, and Law Enforcement Officers; managers at Dell and 3M; professors at the University of Texas; supervisors at the United States Postal Service, and has consulted with various security details.

He has helped abuse survivors, victims of bullying, and those struggling to come out as LGBTQ, and has volumes to say about how friends, families, and schools can help.

When not writing Literary Fiction and Thrillers, Akiva pens short stories and poems, hikes with his insane but devoted Miniature American Shepherd Zeke, plays classical piano and enjoys suspense/horror flicks.

News

BOY IN THE HOLE received a 5-star review from Reader's Favorite: "Akiva Hersh is a good storyteller and writes strong themes into the narrative, juxtaposing religious hypocrisy with sexual waywardness, and creating situations that make the young protagonist question the values of his family. The prose is exquisite, punctuated by powerful and interesting dialogues. Boy in the Hole will provoke reflection in readers while entertaining them in many ways."
