"People keep on learnin'...soldiers keep on warrin'...world keep on turnin'...'cause it won't be too long...powers keep on lyin'...while your people keep on dyin'...world keep on turnin'...'cause it won't be too long...I'm so darn glad he let me try it again...'cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin...I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then...gonna keep on tryin'...'till I reach the highest ground (etc.)" - Stevie Wonder
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.
