A local Somerset County author recently published a book that is based out of a Hillsborough gym where he does book signings.

Lew Freimark, of Montgomery, has written several illustrated youth soccer books in the “Soccer Tales” series, “Legend of the Shoelace Monster” and “Born to Play the Game”. “Soccer Tales III – Baba Yaga’s Revenge” is timely for Halloween. Soccer balls are stolen by a nefarious Russian witch, and Shoelace Monster and his Crew must come to the rescue and save the game.

All three books in the trilogy are featured in the Somerset County Library System, where he works.

His newest release is “Locker Tales-Coffee Beans to Fitness Dreams (Politics to Pandemic).”

Freimark has experience as a soccer parent, coach and referee at all levels of the game. His father played the game in Europe and his sons have played Division I soccer and refereed in club soccer.

Freimark is also a middle school/high school teacher.
