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 ...as 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.
Friday's Words to Write By: BG
"I don't think people read—there are certainly exceptions. We are still alive and we still read. But I don't think it is the same. I think television and now the computer has changed things. I don't know exactly how. But I am going to go on. As a writer who has passed away sometime ago, Douglas Wolf, once said, "Even if there were only one reader out there, I would still be writing for him or her." I feel the same way." - Barry Gifford
