Ken L Gould has worked in healthcare for 25 years, where he has witnessed first hand the difficulties of dealing with death and the struggles of those who refuse to let go.

Death’s Grip is his debut novel. In keeping with his nomadic ways, this book was written in many states and cities, beginning in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, traveling to Overland Park, Kansas and winding down in Flagstaff in the shadow of the wild mountains of Northern Arizona. He has now settled (as much as he can settle) near Kalamazoo, Michigan, where he still works nights in healthcare (he's also a night owl by habit, which is when he does most of his writing.)

He lives with a crazy dog named Dootzie and an even crazier fiancée named Angela.

Now, while this would not make for a very exciting book, I might replace the fob with something else, far more intense. Maybe it's a girl's number, a beautiful girl and I am in the 9th grade, though I suppose I could Facebook stalk her these days. Maybe it also had her name on it, and I can't remember her name. Maybe it's the key to a locker with money I owe a drug dealer or the money I was going to pay to the kidnappers of my kid (sound too much like the plot to a movie you've seen?) The point is I think all fictional plots contain some bits and pieces of us and our experiences. You just have to spice them up so you don't bore the hell out of people. The greatest sin an author can make is to be boring. (less)

A lot of readers want the dreamy version of life, where everything works out and the guy gets the girl (or the girl gets the guy.) I don't. There's something very real, sad and poetic about a couple kept apart due to circumstances they can't control. That's how life happens. And yes, literature should mirror life in this respect. Otherwise, it's soap operish and stupid. I prefer stories like Gone Girl, where the couple is trapped in a loveless marriage that they can't get out of, something with a darkness and sadness to it. All stories should be a bit poetic if an author wants to strive for something great and timeless, rather than garden variety and cookie cutter. So my vote goes to Catherine and Heathcliff, the bitterness of a love denied. (less)

Ken L Gould's Blog Blog BlogOkay, I haven’t blogged in a couple months. I’ve been a bad boy. Someone should spank me. I’ll get my fiancee on that right away, though usually it’s the other way around with us. I’ll let you ponder that image while I get on with the post.


What was I writing about? Oh, Createspace vs. Ingram Spark. This really shouldn’t be a “versus” thing, more like the pluses and minuses of both, because as o...
