Kevin Redmond


Hello I am Kevin Redmond. I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I do have a full time job working in the engineering world, although writing is what I want to do it is few who can really make a good living at it. My day job pays the bills and my writing may do that someday but right now it is my release from the everyday grind.

I have my first book published and I hope it is not my last. It took me to long to get my first book out but hopefully it won't be as long for the next.

I am starting late in the writing business (51 years old), but It is something I wanted to do for a long time. I think everybody has a book or two inside of them, it is finding the time and space to let it out that is difficult. This world has far to many distractions that keep us from doing what is really important.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Well I do have day job working in electrical engineering and design. This sometimes sends to different places around Canada and the world. My leisure time, aside from writing, is also spent hiking and skiing in the mountains near where I live.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I am sure that I read small books and books I was forced to read through school but the one book that really got me hooked into reading and wanting to write was the "The Hobbit" by JRR Tolkien. That was the first time a book really took me to another world and I couldn't wait to read what was happening next.
