in Baltimore, Ireland




Member Since
July 2012

I was born in a small harbor town in southwest Ireland. In an effort to be cliche my parents moved the family to New York when I was thirteen. Once a promising up-and-comer in the world of competitive eating, my career was cut short by an ACL injury. I now reside in Florida with my dogs and drive a truck for a living, but I'm crossing my fingers and hoping my writing career will earn me enough money that I can tell my boss where to stick it.

The 2016 American presidential election is only a couple of months away. I wish it were tomorrow, because it has been covered to death here in the U.S. and I’m not sure how much more I can take. Even though the major news networks have dissected the race from a seemingly infinite number of different angles, none of them have come close to touching upon the burning question on most people’s mind...

This is the second book I've read by Mr. Kozeniewski. Once again, I thought I would be reading something a little lighter and more satirical and got a much deeper story that surprised me with every new layer that was peeled back. Maybe it was the Sim ...more

The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
“He had always believed that his father had not been able to save a penny from the business, at least his father had never told him anything to the contrary, and Gregor, for his part, had never asked him any questions. In those days Gregor's sole concern had been to do everything in his power to make the family forget as quickly as possible the business disaster which had plunged everyone into a state of total despair. And so he had begun to work with special ardor and had risen almost overnight from stock clerk to traveling salesman, which of course had opened up very different money-making possibilities, and in no time his successes on the job were transformed, by means of commissions, into hard cash that could be plunked down on the table at home in front of his astonished and delighted family. Those had been the wonderful times, and they had never returned, at least not with the same glory, although later on Gregor earned enough money to meet the expenses of the entire family and a ...more Franz Kafka

“I turned on Fox News and jumped when I saw that they had one of those things in their studio. "Are you people crazy?" I screamed at the television. "Get out of there. Somebody shoot it!" Then I realized I was watching Special Report and had mistaken Charles Krauthammer for a zombie.”
Ian McClellan, Zombie Apocalypse 2012: A Political Horror Story

“I continued toward Atlanta with a Merle Haggard C.D. playing on the stereo. They weren't great hosts, but those guys in The Ted Kaczynski Fan Club had great taste in music. It was all classic country music- none of that sissy, boy-band country that they played on the radio all the time. I drove down the road while Merle preferred to just stay where he was and drink.”
Ian McClellan, Zombie Apocalypse 2012: A Political Horror Story

“Larry broke my morose train of thought with his laughter. "Welcome to America," he said, "where even our zombie epidemic has an obesity epidemic.”

P.J. Kelley Hi Ian,

I am sending this message to all my goodreads friends.

My new book is free tomorrow on Amazon (5/9/2015).

If you miss the free day, email me and I send in any format.

You would be doing me a huge favor if you downloaded it and helped send it to the top of the free list for the day.

As an Indie writer, this is the best form of promotion I have.

The book is short, but it took me a couple of years to write, believe it or not, so I do not consider this request spam. I don't like everything I write, but I like this book, so am making this extra effort to promote it.

Also, if you do read the book, provide some honest input (I can take it) and pass the link along to your friends if you are willing.

Free 5-9-2015
Just published won't be free again.
