KIERAN SHEA’s fiction has appeared in dozens of venues including Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, Thuglit, Dogmatika, Word Riot, Plots with Guns, Beat to a Pulp, Crimefactory, and Needle: A Magazine of Noir well as in some beefy-looking anthologies most of which will make you question the tether of his shiny, red balloon. To his self-deprecating astonishment he's also been nominated for the Story South’s Million Writers Award twice without sending the judges so much as a thank you note. He co-edited the satiric transgressive fiction collection D*CKED: DARK FICTION INSPIRED BY DICK CHENEY and his debut novel KOKO TAKES A HOLIDAY is out now from Titan Books. Kieran divides his time between 38°58′22.6″N- 76°30′4.17″W and 39.2775° N, 74.5750° W.


Saturday - No Biggie

Trucking up to Jersey today. Face time with the folks. Got the soundtrack mixed for the drive. Will do the usual things. Find great food. Play in the water. See friends. Wonder where all the time has gone. Ask myself for the millionth time a whole lot of whys. Looks to be a glorious weekend weather wise, maybe even a half way decent swell coming in. Next week I start my latest project with zeal. It's going to take strength to cut what needs to be cut, face what demons need to be faced. But I just finished a big story and its now under the knife and out of my hands. Can only do one thing. Go forward. Keep trying. Onward.
