Biography

Kevin J Mackey is native Irish, moved first to the far drier climate of the San Francisco Bay Area, and now lives in Kansas City, MO. He reads widely — "whatever may be found between book covers" — but has a particular fondness for science fiction and poetry.

He has had short stories and poetry published since 2010 both on-line and on paper.

He is seldom without his camera phone and tweets almost exclusively in Haiku. His collection of photographs and haiku "Haiku - Through a Lens" is available online.

Alphard is one who stands apart. In a group-oriented, telepathic society, that makes him an oddity. Even more because he is Dark, non-telepathic.
