Writer and story teller

Background Information

Behcet Kaya is the author of three novels. His first literary fiction novel, Voice of Conscience, follows, to some extent, his own life experiences. His second novel, Murder on the Naval Base is a fast-paced who-done-it and his recently published third novel, Road to Siran, Erin’s Story is the eagerly awaited sequel to Voice of Conscience.
Born in northeastern Turkey, Behcet grew up in a very small village with long held traditions. His rebellious nature emerged at an early age and by time he was ten, he had read, in secret, all the Turkish translated stories of Mike Hammer. In addition, he read several of Dale Carnage’s works, and all of Yashar Kemal’s novels. His world burst out beyond that of his small village and he yearned for a more western way of life.
Defying his father, Behcet left home at fourteen and travelled first to Istanbul and then on to London. His obsession was to complete his high school education and then a college degree in engineering. He supported himself by working full-time and earning scholarships from Inner London Education Authority. His creative side began emerging when his drama and literature teacher cast him in a play in which his performance awed the audience. His insatiable appetite for literature widened to include the classics of Dickens, D.H. Laurence, and the Russian masters.
While at Hatfield Polytechnic, Behcet made his first visit to the US as an exchange student with the British Universities North American Club. He made the move to the US in 1976 and became a US citizen in 1985. While living in Atlanta, Georgia he followed his creative yearnings and attended the Alliance Theatre School and studied at the SAG Conservatory of Georgia, which earned him his Screen Actors Guild card.
In 1994, Kaya and his wife moved to Los Angeles, where he continued his studies at the Roby Theatre Company and the Shakespeare, A Noise Within, Theatre Workshop.
Along with acting, writing became a natural outlet. In addition to his three novels, Voice of Conscience, Murder on the Naval Base, and Road to Siran, Erin’s Story, Behcet has published numerous short stories and is currently working on his fourth novel, Body in the Woods.

Additional Information

In the process of writing Voice of Conscience there were many times of intense emotions evoking creative expression, the need to know, the need to feel, the need to express. My hope is that my book will be considered among the great books of classic literature. I realize my book will not appeal to everyone, but those of independent mind who enjoy truly classic writing. My book explores every side of the human condition, anger, revenge, eroticism, self-pity, pain, sadness, but most of all delving into one's conscience and listening to the voices heard.
