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.
I've never met the man, but someday, maybe. I love his books and I think, well, for some reason I'd just like to cook this son of a bitch a meal. I picture a bunch of writers in cheap beach chairs around a Weber grill, shooting the breeze. Concrete patio. Row house. Dark jugs of wine passed and discourse long into the night until someone tells us to keep it down. And if that happened Charlie, I picture him being the first to his feet telling the person to shut up and mind their own business. He interviewed himself at Nigel Bird's blog this weekend and if you missed it, go here now.
