Kev Heritage

Biography

When Kev isn’t penning difficult, third person descriptions of himself for on and off-line publications, he mulls away the hours writing science fiction mysteries and epic fantasy with a strong emphasis on action and adventure—and occasionally a little humour.

He certainly doesn’t spend his time watching dubious sci-fi films and second rate box-sets on the telly, nor go down the pub, or do anything else other than concentrating on the written word.

“A writer writes,” he is often heard to say. And that’s what Kev does. Write that is, not talk about writing! There can be no doubt about it.

Kev has recently been diagnosed as being on the Autism Spectrum (ASD), which means he has absolutely no sense of humour and finds it terrifically hard to get on with people… This is only half true.

His rather long list of previous employment includes: driver’s mate, factory gate-man, barman, labourer, telesales operative, sales assistant, warehouse-man, Student Union President, university IT help-desk guy, British Rail signal software designer, premiership football website designer, mobile banking content team lead, gigging musician, graphic designer, stand-up comedian, sound engineer, improv artist, magazine editor and web journo. Although he doesn’t like to talk about it.

For a hobby, Kev likes to work for a living, where he performs various metaphorical somersaults and back-flips for companies the width and breath of a small area around Victoria Tube Station, London.

Kev was born in the UK in one of the more interesting previous centuries. Originally from Derbyshire, he now lives in the seaside town of Brighton.

He is a tea drinker, Twitter aficionado (@KevHeritage) and part-time stand-up comedian.
