Shea Oliver is a science fiction and horror writer with a passion for telling stories that challenge readers' assumptions and stereotypes. In his first published novel, The Betrayal of Ka, a protagonist's decision to sell drugs to a young boy results in the death of the child.

Shea enjoys taking readers them on deeply emotional journeys to explore his characters motivations, mindset, and decisions. While his stories are written to be entertaining tales, they also are designed to be works that prompt readers to explore their own thoughts, behaviors, and treatment of others.

During a difficult personal period, Shea solo-climbed and sat alone atop a high mountain peak in Rocky Mountain National Park to assess his life. As he mediated in that

"3.5 stars
I'll be the first to admit SyFy is not really my genre. However, when I was presented this one I was intrigued. It could have been because a couple of the characters had powers that I often wished that I had in my youth. Two young people..." Read more of this review »

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt
