Kevin McLaughlin


When not dressing up in medieval armor and hitting friends with sticks or taking to the ocean in a sailboat, I'm often writing new stories. I've been doing that since I was about seven, and have been writing more often than I haven't, over the years since.

I write science fiction and fantasy, and tend to write stories about heroism, and the better part of human nature. Even in the darkest of moments, I believe that humanity has greatness. I like to tell those stories.
