Kevin Krest

Biography

I was born in Pennsylvania, but grew up in Virginia and consider that my home state. Becoming a sports enthusiast at an early age led me to be a fan of the Baltimore Colts, primarily because of Johnny Unitas and the proximity of the team to my home in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. In later years, after moving to Virginia, the Redskins became my team of choice and continue that way to this day.

I went to high school in Virginia Beach, where my mother still resides. My college education was provided by Virginia Tech, where I earned a B.S. in Economics as well as an MBA. While there, I worked at the campus radio station as a disc jockey, sportscaster for baseball, news and sports reporter and the advertising sales manager.

Since then, I have pursued a career in business, working in Retail, Banking, Human Resources and Business Development. I've lived in numerous Virginia cities and towns as well as Charlotte, Atlanta, Phoenix, Tampa and Northwest Arkansas, where I met my current and wonderful wife, Rachel.

When I turned 50, I decided one of the things I wanted to do was write and publish a novel. "Illegal Procedure - A PK Frazier Novel" and the follow up, "Roughing the Passer - A PK Frazier Novel", about a sportscaster who ends up embroiled in a messy scandal, were result of that effort. In the aftermath of those publications, I ended up creating Beyond the Commentary, a sports talk brand that has given me the opportunity to appear on and host various sports talk radio programs.

The culmination of all of those efforts is the latest PK Frazier novel, "Offsetting Penalties", a story of intrigue and conspiracy that chronicles the attempt to compromise an entire season of one of America's premier sports leagues.
