Derek Schmitz is an Amazon and Goodreads author.

Their first book is entitled Camden’s Secret. CS is the story that goes through the life of Camden Jenson, a 16-year-old teenager with a rich best friend named Andrew Davenport. The Davenport family is wanted for treason in relation to a suspicious bombing during the State of the State address. In the ultimate best-friend betrayal, Cam partners with the FBI by going undercover to find intel that connects them to the bombing and bring Andrew and the rest of the Davenport family to justice.

Their second book is entitled Sevan: A Gay, Disabled Teen Romance. SAGDR is the story of Evan Jacobson and Sam Davidson. Evan Jacobson is a funny, smart, quirky, brown-haired, blue-eyed, gay, disabled teenager growing up in Alabama. Sam Davidson is his loyal, caring, kind, goofy, nerdy, blonde-haired, green-eyed, “straight”, able-bodied best friend. They love each other; not on a best friend level, but on a deep, passionate, romantic level. Sam loves Evan with all of his heart and with every fiber of his being, he’s just too scared to come out of the closet as bi and tell him. Evan thinks Sam is still straight, and even if he was gay, Evan thinks Sam is way too far out of his league. Even in the middle of their relationship dilemma, Evan couldn’t imagine a life without Sam, and Sam can’t imagine a life without Evan, even just as best friends. And they might not ever have to.
