Kevin Long is a Science Fiction author and blogger from Nebraska. He's the child of a NASA engineer and an immigrant, and has had a life-long fascination with space and exotic cultures. He's wild-eyed, engaging, chatty, smart, interested in nearly everything, and hence almost instantly annoying in person. Just the same, his writing has been praised by several well-established professional SF authors.
His first love is Science Fiction, and he's been writing for 25 years. For half a decade he was the head writer and editor on the Republibot website but he has since retired. During that period, he went by the nom de web "Republibot 3.0" in a paranoid bid to protect his identity from his stalkers (note the plural). Since the worst of these got hit by a bus, though, he's gotten more laid back about the whole thing. He's middle aged, happily married, and has an indeterminate number of kids. He's been trying to lose weight, but that's not going so well.
He also sings.
