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.

"The time for action is now. It's never too late to do something." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Started to write something full of bellyaching and somehow (thankfully) good old Blogger blew the whole bullshit post away before I could save or post it. Divine intervention? Karma? The ghost on the shoulder that drives me nuts? Whatever, man. Time to get my rhythms back and get those ideas down. There's good news afoot from the men and women in the writing trench gang on the right. Can't wait to share it, but it'll have to wait until I get the go ahead. Take heart...right, Antione? Don't let that engine stall? God damn right. Onward.
