Once upon a time, on a cold winter's night in 1972, there was a young lad coerced by his parents to participate in a weekly ritual known to many as grocery-shopping. This mundane act was intolerable for the boy, so on this night he wandered away and stumbled upon such a magical place that its influence would joyfully or woefully redefine his life forever.
He had found a bookstore.
Fantasy, Science fiction, Nature, and Science were the categories that thrilled him. Voracious was his appetite, and not having a penny to his name his hunger consumed him. Until one day he realized that a foldaway grocery bag, his bicycle and a library card would be the answer. It wasn't long before he would take a five mile bike trip to the library expending every free moment that he had. This caused quite a rift with his parents since there was a garden to be weeded, lawns to be mowed, roofs that needed shingling, and houses that needed painting, not to mention homework to be tended. Kevin would have none of this. And his parents started to worry over the boy's well being.
Kevin was certain of his future. He would become a fiction book jacket artist like his many heroes, yet as a difference he would be writing the books that he jacketed. Yes, this would be his course.
Forty-some odd years later, life has hewn out Kevin's fate quite differently. And yet, poor misguided Kevin would have none of it. He is still penniless. And his voracious hunger for his dream consumes him.
Kevin currently lives in central New York. He is the Senior Creative Partner and co-owner of ZUZZY Miniatures. These days he can be found spending his time, working at ZUZZY, sculpting, painting, writing novels, seeking freelance illustration and graphic design work and finishing the many projects accumulated over a lifetime
