Kevin Kauffmann was one of those kids that would make up stories every day, creating worlds and adventures for action figures, old Transformers and even lucky stuffed animals. Then the real world came knocking and he forgot he loved to tell stories. After grabbing a degree from UNC-Chapel Hill, he remembered just what he lost.
The Icarus Trilogy, a sci-fi tale about futuristic gladiatorial warfare, was Kauffmann's first professional project, but he has since gone on to tell stories in many different genres. His Forsaken Comedy, a dark fantasy trilogy about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse attempting to save humanity, has been praised for its reimagination of popular mythology, even considering the sensitive nature of the topic. His latest, Ouroboros, was released this last winter, and has already been receiving high praise for its representation of hallucinogen use and self-destructive behaviors.
These days, Kauffmann is steadily releasing a series of absurd fairy tales starring Rumplestiltskin III, and he hopes to collect them into a single volume by Spring 2015.
