In 1990, Nate Burleigh graduated from Eagle Point High School with no idea what's he'd be doing with his life.
But nearly 22 years later Burleigh is quickly climbing to the top of Amazon's best sellers list.
Burleigh will be in the Rogue Valley this weekend to promote and sign copies of his debut novel, "Substance."
The novel is a supernatural thriller about about a teenager in the late 80's who unlocks abilities trapped within himself.
He then has to learn to use these abilities to gain sustenance in order to survive and to fight an ancient evil that is hunting him.
On Friday Burleigh will meet with Eagle Point High School students and talk about how he's gotten where he is now.
On Saturday he will sign copies of his book at the Bookmark Bookstore at 209 Main Street in Eagle Point around 1pm.
