in Ft. Wayne, IN and raised in southeastern VA, Kevin A. Kierstead was
published by the age of 10 (editorial). After graduating high school in
1990, he joined the U.S.A.F. for four years while being published as
the feature and sports writer for the North Pole Independent Newspaper,
securing an exclusive interview with a new gold and silver Olympic
medalist, Tommy Moe. He also finished his first fiction novel during
his military service.
He later studied at Christopher Newport
University, majoring in Psychology and English with a writing
concentration, 1996-99, 2002-04.
He believes it hasn't all been
done, and that everybody has a story to tell. He believes that rules
and constraints must often be scrutinized and tested. His genres vary,
including science-fiction, humor, and suspense thrillers. He hopes to
sign with a major publishing house but is also entirely content as long
as his readers are satisfied.
